||The EIB loan will finance the 30-year Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain (DBFOM) concession of Hospital de Lisboa Oriental (HLO). HLO is a new acute, specialist care and teaching 875-bed hospital to be built in Chelas, in the eastern part of the city. The project is part of the Ministry of Healths hospital modernisation and reconfiguration strategy across the Lisbon area and beyond.
The new hospital will largely substitute six existing hospitals located in the city centre and managed by one entity (Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Central, EPE - CHLC). Since the project involves both the upgrade of health estate and improvement of service delivery, it falls under the EIBs primary objective "Innovation, digital and human capital" (Health). It is also eligible under Article 309 point (c) "common interest" and under Article 309 point (a) "EIB Cohesion Priority Region".
