FRD Center has identified certain opportunities in the new Romanian public hospitals. The Romanian public healthcare system is currently receiving considerable attention from international investors, such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the European Investment Bank and the World Bank. Also, funding is available from EU programs and the recently launched National Recovery and Resilience Facility.

Total allocated sum for the period 2021 – 2027 is of approx 4 bnEUR

Due to lack of specific expertise of the Romanian players, foreign companies specialised in hospital design and implementation, are exposed to potential strategic opportunities and should take advantage of the Opportunities in the New Romanian Public Hospitals.

Specific opportunities can be identified and assessed on a specific case-by-case basis, upon demand from the foreign players.

According to the FRD Center information, some of the new hospitals announced to be built with the expected investments in the Romanian public healthcare system include: the Brasov, the Iasi, the Craiova, the Vrancea, the Sibiu and the Cluj Regional Hospitals, each of them with an estimated CAPEX of 500 mEUR, the New facility for pneumology and infections diseases for the Oradea Emergency County Hospital with an estimated CAPEX of 130 mEUR, the Timisoara General Hospital with an estimated CAPEX of approx. 400 mEUR and the Heart Institute ”Prof Dr. CC Iliescu” București with an estimated CAPEX of 165 mEUR.

Digitalization is the main focus of the current Minister of Health, as it is seen as the key to modernize healthcare delivery services. Romanian decision makers in the healthcare sector are fully aware of the need for raising the innovation level. Better cost control in the Romanian healthcare sector is directly related to improving the level of digitalization in the system.

As it results from the FRD Center research, digitalisation of the new hospitals to be built in Romania is a must. Hospital functional design and building automation solutions are being included in the new projects.  Digital health management solutions are being sought locally and internationally.
