Medical institutions in Croatia to get 21 linear accelerators, worth €55.4m

Medical institutions in Croatia will obtain 21 linear accelerators and related equipment for cancer prevention, diagnostics and treatment, based on a government decision on the procurement of non-financial assets for the Health Ministry worth €55,411,558.75.

Health Minister Vili Beroš said as much as €85 million was secured from the Recovery and Resilience Facility for the procurement of the equipment, which, he said, would bring Croatia closer to the European average in terms of the number of linear accelerators per number of inhabitants.

The project is aimed at advancing cancer prevention, treatment and diagnostics and securing optimal therapy for all oncology patients in Croatia.

The Health Ministry conducted the public procurement procedure for the clinical hospital centre (KBC)В “Sisters of charity” in Zagreb, the KBC Rijeka hospital, the KBC Osijek hospital, the KBC Split hospital, the KBC Zagreb hospital and the General Hospital in Zadar.
