The European Commission (EC) has approved an investment worth EUR47 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to build an 800-bed Regional Emergency Hospital (REH) in Craiova, southern Romania.
The total value of the project in Craiova is estimated at RON 2.85 billion (EUR 590 mln).
This is the third project of this kind financed by the European Commission in Romania, after the Regional Emergency Hospitals in Cluj-Napoca and Iasi.
Although the talks about the regional hospitals started in 2015, the projects have been long delayed.
The European Commission has earmarked only EUR 150 mln for the three hospitals that need ten times more for completion.
More financing from the EU’s budget could come under the 2021-2027 financial framework.
The Craiova Regional Emergency Hospital will be built in Craiova - Ghercești. The duration of the project implementation is 104 months.
The hospital will include a complex of buildings with seven levels, with a total built area of approximately 165,296 square meters. It will have a heliport and 1,195 parking lots.
