Macedonia: Construction of New Clinical Hospital Kicks off in Stip

A groundbreaking ceremony marked Thursday a launch of construction of a new Clinical Hospital in Stip ­ an investment of about EUR 30 million.

The ceremony saw the presence of Transitional Prime Minister Emil Dimitriev, Health Minister Nikola Todorov, VMRO-­DPMNE leader Nikola Gruevski, MPs and Stip Mayor Ilco Zahariev.

The new Clinical Hospital is going to be first of its kind in Macedonia, Dimitriev said at the ceremony.

The eight-­level complex will offer a great number of wards and medical centers. The diagnostic, treatment center for both in and out patients will be located on the first three storeys, while the patient rooms are to occupy the higher levels of the building. All departments will be connected for easer communication of patients and medical personnel, Dimitriev said.

He pointed out that today's event was a result of the Government's policies for investing in Macedonia's healthcare system. The new hospital is going to be the most modern health facility in Macedonia, one that will house all necessary departments, outpatient wards and an urgent center, Health Minister Todorov said.

"This is a cornerstone for high­ quality health care. The building will be constructed in line with all European standards and offer medical services to over 200,000 potential patients," Todorov said.
