Hospitals are not specifically mentioned in the Environmental Impact Assessment (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 the screening decision of the competent authority and whether an EIA is required. It is expected that the project will have positive social benefits as healthcare is an element of social cohesion.
