EBRD provides EUR 10mn loan for Polish private healthcare operator GNS Group

By bne IntelliNews March 10, 2014

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is supporting the commercialisation and restructuring of healthcare services in Poland with a PLN 40mn (EUR 10mn equivalent) to Grupa Nowy Szpital (GNS) to finance an investment programme which will be part of the restructuring and expansion of GNS healthcare operations. GNS Group is the biggest private healthcare operator in Poland with a network of 13 hospitals in the country.
EBRD argues that private investments complement public delivery of services while setting standards of efficiency and quality. Increased investment in the sector is expected to have beneficial effects on many participants.
The additional funding provides necessary support for the strategic project carried out by GNS in cooperation with its sister company ZUK Know-How, commented Adam Roslewski, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Grupa Nowy Szpital.
Since the beginning of its operations in 1991, the EBRD has invested over EUR 6.7bn in Poland in more than 325 projects.
