The project concerns the extension and rehabilitation of the North Estonian Medical Centre (Põhja-Eesti Regionaalhaigla) in Tallinn under the investment programme 2018-2023.

The investments will be used to replace obsolete buildings with new facilities according to modern requirements in respect to treatment and care. The previous investments have been partly financed by the EIB under the operation NORTH ESTONIA MEDICAL CENTRE (2009-0773). The implementation of the project proceeded satisfactorily and in accordance with the contractual obligations. The services will verify the consistency and continuity of the newly proposed project with the previous investments.
