“Last year we reported more than 4,000 hospitalisations; and that number should gradually increase in the new hospital," the Interior Ministry informed the SITA newswire. According to preliminary estimates, the project will cost €49.7 million. Two-thirds of this sum is earmarked for the construction of the building, the rest will be used to equip the new premises. "The total cost will not be known until after the contract is signed with the construction contractor and with the supplier of the equipment for hospital," said Interior Ministry officials as quoted by SITA.
