Project Information
Project name: Turkey: Kocaeli hospital PPP
Project description:

A Turkish-American consortium has signed a finance package for the Kocaeli hospital PPP in Turkey. 

The €375.75m high-tech hospital in the north-western Turkish province of Kocaeli will be designed, built, equipped and managed by Kocaeli Hastane Yatırım ve Saglık Hizmetleri, a joint venture between US conglomerate GE and Turkish firms GAMA and Turkerler.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development has arranged a €62.7m syndicated loan under its A/B loan structure, with €20m for the bank’s own account and €42.7m syndicated to UniCredit, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and Intesa Sanpaolo.

Parallel financing of $220m and €55m has been provided by US government development finance arm Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and Export Development Canada.

The new health complex will span several buildings and have a total of 1,180 beds. Under a 28-year concession, the buildings will be leased to Turkey’s Ministry of Health. 

The private developer will act as facilities manager, providing building maintenance and non-clinical services, while medical services will remain the remit of the Ministry. The hospital is expected to become operational in 2019.

Last month the same financiers signed the Izmir Hospital.
