Two companies failed to meet conditions necessary for advancing to the second round: GNP controlled by tycoon Ivan Kmotrík and Slovak company Sanigest CEE. This means that Ribera Salud Infraestructuras, Metrostav and InterHealth Canada, Agel in cooperation with Assuta Medical Centers, Rizzani de Eccher - Policlinico San Donato, and Pessina Costruzioni SpA - Dúha - Credinvest International Slovakia will now compete for the order, the TASR newswire reported.

The private investor, who will win the competition, should construct, finance and also operate the new hospital for 30 years.

“The Health Ministry is convinced that through the competition dialogue with experienced operators of modern end hospitals it will achieve the optimal setting of final competition conditions to secure the public interest of health policy to offer effective, high quality end health care in modern premises of the new generation hospital, without further external and internal indebtedness,” ministry spokesperson Peter Bubla said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
