Mayor of Belgrade Zoran Radojicic stated that the goal was for the new children's hospital, Tirsova 2, to be completed by 2023 at the latest, Politika writes.
The construction works, he noted, should begin in the next two years. By then, following the preparation of a feasibility study, the tender procedure for which should end these days, a detailed construction project will be prepared.
Radojicic stated for the Thursday (July 12) issue of Politika that the construction of this health institution would provide a long-term solution to the issue of top quality treatment of children in Serbia.
– At the moment, property-legal relations are being resolved, and it is very important that the top quality children's hospital will be only 150 meters away from the maternity ward in Visegradska Street. We will be able to take care of newborns with the most complex anomalies, whose lives depend on timely surgical interventions in the first hours of their lives – the mayor said.
The new children's hospital, the Belgrade newspaper reminds, will be located within the Clinical Center in Deligradska Street on a parcel of around 1 hectare. It is estimated that the construction and the equipping might cost EUR 54 million, and the money has been provided by the Central European Bank.
