Brief on IFC's PPP advisory support to the governement of Romania in the setup of four 4-year contracts to refurbish, operate, and manage dialysis centers at eight hospitals around the country.
More than a quarter of Romania’s dialysis patients have received better health care as a result of a public-private partnership to provide dialysis on an outpatient basis. This was IFC’s third public-private partnership transaction with the government of Romania in the health care sector since 2002.
Four international operators won four-year contracts (extendible to seven years if
the operators opt to build new facilities) to refurbish, operate, and manage dialysis centers at eight hospitals around the country. The companies have invested more than €28.6 million to modernize the facilities and expand services. Between 2005 and 2008, the government of Romania saved €2.9 million as a result of this outsourcing of public dialysis services to private providers. The transaction closed in November 2004.
