Business Finland and the Embassy of Finland in Bucharest are pleased to invite you to the webinar focused on upcoming hospital investments in Romania and available Team Finland’s assistance for Finnish companies interested to capture the business opportunities.

Significant regional and municipal-level investments are implemented in the Romanian healthcare system. Romania is in need of building and equipping new hospitals as a response to challenges resulting from underdeveloped, obsolete infrastructure and inadequate access to health care resources. Healthcare infrastructure has not been upgraded for many years, but very ambitious and large-scale projects are now entering the preparatory phase with secured European funding, which opens room for Finnish companies with offering in hospital infrastructure design, construction and equipment.

Having around 19.7 mln population, Romania is the 6th largest EU member state and a dynamically growing market with many untapped business opportunities for which Finland has a competitive offering. Healthcare is one of the areas with significant needs and ambitious plans to be implemented thanks to secured external financing. Despite historically one of the lowest health expenditures in the EU, significant boost of European funding opens up room for improving hospitals infrastructure. There is a large interest on the market to learn from international experiences.

There are around 15 new hospitals development projects ongoing and planned in Romania with expected start of operations between 2025-2027. Projects include:

  • Major regional emergency hospitals with 800-1000 beds
  • Small and medium hospitals (less than 800 beds)
  • New specialized facilities for hospitals
  • Specialized healthcare institutions (incl. Transplantation Center, Children Hospital, Heart Institute, Cerebrovascular Diseases and Neurosurgery Center)
  • Private hospitals

2021 is a key milestone on the timeline for Finnish companies willing to take part in these investments and initiate discussions with Romanian decision-makers.

Join the webinar to learn more about the hospitals investments in Romania and recommendations for Finnish companies regarding entering the Romanian market. Romanian healthcare, public procurement and market entry experts will be available to answer your questions.

Who should participate?

The webinar is open to Finnish companies providing the following:

  • Hospital design consultancy
  • Smart planning and building (potentially incl. digitalization and BIM) technologies and services
  • Companies with expertise in building energy efficiency
  • Companies providing other sustainable solutions towards hospitals
  • Healthcare technologies and equipment
