    Description
    Objectives

    The rehabilitation and centralization of the hospital campus AZ Sint-Lucas in the city of Ghent.

    This project will benefit to the overall health strategy of the region through appropriately configured infrastructure. The new and rehabilitated facilities will allow for new spaces, introduction of state-of-the-art technology and the reorganization of service delivery models, capable to respond to the evolving demographic and epidemiological needs of the population.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    Hospitals are not specifically mentioned in the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU as amended, though the project is covered by Annex II of the Directive in relation to urban development. The Bank's services will verify during appraisal whether an EIA is required and the screening decision of the competent authority. 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/EEC/ and/or 2004/17/EEC 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 EU Official Journal, as and where required.

    Disclaimer

    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).
