Government of Chile to tender US$2.5 billion hospital concessions
The Ministries of Health and Public Works of the government of Chile have published a schedule for the tender of eighteen hospital concessions with a total investment of over US$2.5 billion.
Private partners will be sought to construct, equip and maintain the hospitals, with the Ministry of Health to take care of operations and clinical services.
This ambitious programme is set to commence shortly, with the first tender to be launched before December. It will cover three hospitals in the Maule Region of the country, located in the south. The new hospitals will replace facilities in Cauquenes, Constitución and Parral that were built in 2010 to replace those damaged by the earthquake.
