Macedonia to start building 70 mln euro hospital in Skopje in June

SKOPJE (Macedonia), April 25 (SeeNews) - The construction of Skopje's biggest hospital worth some 70 million euro ($76.1 million) will start in June, Macedonia's healthcare minister Nikola Todorov has said.

The hospital is expected to be built within 45 months, Todorov said in statement on Monday.

The hospital will have a total area of some 70,000 sq m and will be built on the site of an existing gynecological hospital. In Todorov's words, it will be "the largest project in the history of Macedonian healthcare".

The implementation of the project was awarded to the biggest construction companies in Macedonia, Granit [MSE:GRNT] and Beton [MSE:BESK]. 

The finance ministry said earlier that the project is financed with the proceeds of a loan from the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB).
