Improvement of the Kuopio University Hospital in Finland under the 2015-2024 investment programme
The project supports the infrastructure and organisational development of the Kuopio University Hospital (Kuopion yliopistollinen sairaala (KYS)), the academic hospital of the University of Eastern Finland.
Hospitals are not specifically mentioned in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU, though the project is covered by Annex II of the directive in relation to urban development. The Bank's services will verify the screening decision of the competent authority during appraisal. The public building will have to meet the relevant national targets on energy efficiency as a minimum. The design energy performance of the hospital and any specific related targets to be met will be verified during appraisal. It is expected that the project will have positive social benefits as healthcare is an element of social cohesion.
The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directive 2004/18/EC and/or 2004/17/EC as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU, as and where required.
Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
