The United States government will finance construction of a helicopter-landing site in front of four Croatian hospitals.
At the initiative of its government to participate financially in improving the quality of health care services in Croatia, the US Embassy addressed to the Croatian Ministry of Health six month ago.
This initiative was followed by a request for Croatia to support the realization of the project by co-financing part of the costs, i.e. to pay the VAT and costs of external monitoring of the polygon construction.
The US government will co-finance the project with $450,000, whilst Croatia will participate with 1 million Kunas approved by the Croatian government. According to the words of the Health Minister Milan Kujundzic, the money was already envisaged and provided by this year's state budget.
Therefore, Zagreb's Nova bolnica KB Dubrava, KBC Osijek and two general hospitals in Slavonski Brod and Karlovac will get new helicopter landing sites and significantly improve the quality of their health care services.
In addition, as part of the construction of the helicopter landing sites, special emphasis will be put on ensuring conditions for night landing.
