Project Description

Tirana University Hospital is the most important tertiary medical facility in Albania. This facility is the largest hospital in the country with a bed capacity of approximately 1,450 beds and serves 65,000 patients every year.

The investments were foreseen to be implemented in several stages. The first phase covered the construction of a new main building for the hospital including an emergency unit, radiology, intensive care, laboratories, central sterilisation, and functional diagnostics. The second phase consists of two additional floors on the main building and the rehabilitation of the General Medicine Building.

The WBIF provided a €580,000 EU grant to support the preparation of the feasibility study, including the environmental impact assessment and the energy supply study. The grant also provided for a training component focused on maintenance and waste management.

The study was completed in June 2010; it was carried out by the Infrastructure Project Facility 2. The loan for the investment works was signed with CEB in January 2015, while the latter is expected to be completed by December 2019.
