August 27, 2021, Novosibirsk – In Novosibirsk, in the presence of Alexander Zhukov, Vice Speaker of the State Duma, a project envisioning the creation of an infectious disease hospital was presented to Andrei Travnikov, Governor of Novosibirsk Region.
Implementation of the project assumes the conclusion of an agreement on public-private partnership. Construction of the hospital is being initiated by the construction-investment holding K1. It is anticipated that project financing will be carried out by Gazprombank.
The new infectious disease hospital will be situated in Sadovy Village, Novosibirsky District. It will be one of the largest hospitals in Siberia. The medical facility, with a capacity of more than 500 inpatient beds and spanning a total area of over 35,000 sq. m, will be fitted with cutting-edge high-tech equipment. It is expected that the complex will consist of six treatment departments (including functional diagnostics, intensive care and radiology), a surgical unit with a maternity ward and four laboratories. Timeframe for the commissioning of the complex – Q4 2022.
“We believe that one of the critical elements of social welfare in any region is access to professional healthcare. That is why, for several years now, Gazprombank has been actively participating in medical PPP projects. Our cooperation with Frac Jet-Volga Group is strategic in nature and we are pleased to be taking part in this landmark project. The construction of an infectious disease hospital is very important to local residents – it will mark the first such facility in terms of preparedness and equipping level in Novosibirsk Region. We will spare no effort in ensuring that this ambitious and vital project is implemented within the shortest-possible timeframe,” stressed Pavel Brusser, First Vice President – Department Head, Infrastructure Projects and Public Private Partnership Department, Gazprombank.
“It’s important that we’re not just investors but also competent builders with a solid track-record in the successful implementation of a number of major turnkey projects in different regions across Russia. One of the unique features of the public-private partnership mechanism is the fact that the investor provides for the subsequent operation of the newly-built facility for years into the future. That means we’re assuming serious obligations, which is why we build conscientiously and as quickly as possible,” noted Dmitri Kolosov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Frac Jet-Volga Group and the construction-investment holding K1.
As you may recall, the cooperation agreement between Gazprombank and Frac Jet-Volga Group was concluded within the framework of SPIEF-2021. The parties intend to pursue the joint implementation in the Russian regions of PPP projects in the fields of healthcare, education, transportation & sports infrastructure, housing and public utilities.
