On June 20, Meridiam inaugurated the Bursa City Hospital. With this fourth hospital in the country, Meridiam is now the leader in public-private partnerships in Turkey’s health sector, serving 10% of the country’s needs.
On June 20, Meridiam alongside its partner Rönesans inaugurated the Bursa City Hospital Public Private Partnership (PPP) in western Turkey, its fourth in the country. The 1,355-bed hospital will provide the public with efficient and modern access to a full range of high-quality healthcare in a single integrated campus: general practice, oncology, cardiovascular diseases, women, children, and psychiatric services. The Bursa City Hospital PPP consists of the design, construction, financing and maintenance of an integrated health campus over a 28-year period.
With the opening of the Bursa City Hospital, Meridiam now operates a combined total of more than 4,400 beds in Turkey, representing a total investment of more than €1.5 billion. Together with its partner Rönesans, Meridiam is today the leader in public-private partnerships in Turkey’s health sector, serving 10% of the country’s needs.
Bursa is yet another milestone for Meridiam sustainable development in Turkey:
- Adana was the first Turkish PPP to close exclusively with international financing;
- Elazig featured the first green and social bond for an infrastructure project in Turkey. It is also the first project to feature an innovative credit enhancement scheme provided by the EBRD and MIGA, in line with the COP21 global commitment to support emerging countries; and
- Yozgat was the first hospital PPP in Turkey to enter into operation.
All four of Meridiam’s hospitals are modern, eco-responsible and provide access to high-quality and essential healthcare services for their communities, consistent with Meridiam's mission to develop, finance and manage sustainable and long-term infrastructure that improves the quality of people’s lives.
