Poland: Cohesion Policy invests in a modern hospital for the city of Toruń
€52.7 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is invested to upgrade the largest public hospital in the city of Toruń, in northern Poland. This EU-funded project covers the construction of a new hospital complex centralising several medical services and of a helipad. Such an integrated rescue and treatment platform will significantly increase the quality and speed of the medical services provided to patients.
Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu said: “Thanks to this Cohesion Policy investment, the inhabitants of Toruń will wait less for treatment and exams. They will access quality health services in a single modern hospital complex. This is a great project that shows what Cohesion Policy is about: improving the lives of the people.”
When the project is completed, the hospital will host 59 specialist clinics and have a capacity of 1050 beds.
