Promoter – Financial Intermediary
The Project involves the physical merger of two existing hospitals, the Marciniak Lower Silesian Specialist Hospital and the District Railway Hospital (organisationally completed in 2010), and their relocation to a single, new, purpose-built facility located on a greenfield site in the north-western part of Wroclaw in Lower Silesia.
Located in a convergence region, the project is eligible under the convergence objective. As a health sector investment, it responds to the Bank’s environmental policy objective under sustainable communities (health), and the growth and employment potential objective (as per the priority lending objectives outlined in the COP 2012-2014). The project is therefore eligible under Article 309 point (a) projects for developing less-developed regions and point (c) common interest of the EU Treaty.

Hospitals are not specifically mentioned in the Directive on Environmental Impact Assessment, though the project may be 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 (Dir 2004/18/EEC/ or 2004/17/EEC and Dir. 2007/66/EC), with parallel publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate.
