Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, September 20, 2019 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković laid the foundation stone for a new hospital in Rijeka’s Sušak district on Thursday. The hospital will house a clinic for paediatrics and a clinic for gynaecology and obstetrics, along with corresponding laboratories serving the city’s Clinical Hospital Centre (KBC).

“I am glad that we as the government have shown determination and boldness to continue the implementation of this major project,” Plenković said at the ceremony.

The cost of construction is about 875 million kuna (118 million euro), and this is a major investment in the Croatian healthcare sector, the PM said. Once completed, this project will raise both the standard of healthcare and standard of living in this part of the country, he added.

The hospital will have eight levels, it will be built by the Kamgrad and GP Krk companies, and the deadline for its completion is March 2022.

Health Minister Milan Kujundžić said that this was a great event for the future of this part of Croatia and for the healthcare sector as a whole.

“Croatia needs four large hospital centres – in Zagreb, Rijeka, Split and Osijek – as a guarantee of a high level of hospital medicine in the country,” Kujundžić said.
