Construction of a new women’s and children’s hospital in Poznań

The investment in constructing a new seat of the women’s and children’s hospital in Poznań was prepared by the government of the Wielkopolskie Voivodeship (Project Promoter).

This project was selected in 2013, after a public call for proposals, by the Ministry of Investment and Development as a PPP pilot project. According to the objectives, support includes comprehensive advice (legal, economic and financial and technical) in connection with preparing the investment in the PPP model. The objective of support is to develop and make available the process reference documentation and experiences related to the process of preparing the project to be implemented in the PPP model. The documentation in this regard is published in the Documents tab.

Description of the project

The functioning Specialised Health Care Centre for Women and Children in Poznań (SPZOZ) whose founding entity is the voivodeship government, provides basic and specialised paediatric care as well as obstetric and gynecological care.

In accordance with analyses carried out, the expansion and modernisation of the buildings of the existing SPZOZ, located in various locations, would be very expensive. It was also confirmed that the technical condition of infrastructure in use does not meet the requirements for this type of healthcare activity.

In view of the above, a concept of the comprehensive solution for the problem by building a new hospital has been created. The Project Promoter decided that one of models for implementing the investment may be the model of public-private partnership. The concept of the new hospital in the PPP model assumes that it will pursue activities taken over from the existing SPZOZ units and the Rehabilitation Hospital for Children, taking into account changes in diagnostic and therapeutic processes. Pursuant to a preliminary medical programme, the investment was to cover 14 units (about 420 beds), emergency department, 24 outpatient clinics, birth school, operating room, delivery room, diagnostics and laboratories. At the stage of analyses, the phasing of the project i.e. its implementation to a limited extent, was also considered.

In accordance with the then objectives, the tasks of the Private Partner were to be: financing, designing using state-of-the-art technologies, construction, management of hospital infrastructure and maintenance.

Support for the project was completed after carrying out investment analyses in 2015 due to the fact that the Promoter resigned from implementing the investment.
