PROINVERSION PROMOTES TO INVESTORS ESSALUD HOSPITAL PROJECTS

November 09, 2021. Lima, Peru.-The Private Investment Promotion Agency (PROINVERSIÓN) presented to national and foreign investors the technical, financial and legal aspects of the projects "Two New EsSalud Hospitals: Piura and Chimbote", to attract potential bidders in the process.

The projects, which require an investment of approximately S/ 998 million, were called for tendering last October to grant in concession, to a private operator specialized in the health sector that will be responsible for the design, financing, construction, acquisition and replacement of the necessary equipment for the operation and maintenance of both hospitals under Co-financed Public-Private Partnership (PPP) modality.

The webinar was attended by investors, consultants, bank representatives, law firms, construction companies, among others, and had the intervention of the Central Manager for Promotion and Management of Investment Contracts of ESSALUD, Raúl Fernández; the executive director of PROINVERSIÓN, Rafael Ugaz; the head of the PPP Team in the Vice Presidency of Countries of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Gastón Astesiano; and PROINVERSION's project director, Nancy Zedano.

During the opening remarks, the Central Manager for Promotion and Management of Investment Contracts of ESSALUD, Raúl Fernández, pointed out that "EsSalud currently has 11 million members. We must have adequate infrastructure, medical specialists and timely supplies; that is why the need to have new hospitals." He emphasized that "PPPs in health services allow to improve the care infrastructure giving a new, continuous and quality offer for the benefit of the insured persons"

Also, during the opening remarks, the head of the PPP team of the Inter-American Development Bank, Gastón Astesiano, highlighted the strategic importance of the hospital projects of Piura and Chimbote for the country in this period of global health and economic crisis. In the same way, added "Participating in this project with technical cooperation resources and dedicated Bank teams is very important for us because it is part not only of our country strategy, but also with Vision 2025, which has as one of its goals to promote access to quality public health services and contribute to closing the public infrastructure gap, leveraging the execution of such projects with private capital."

Meanwhile, the executive director of PROINVERSIÓN, Rafael Ugaz, stressed that both projects will provide important benefits for the insured population of EsSalud, such as expanding access to specialized hospital services, providing health services with high quality standards and reducing the health expenditure of families, contributing to the reduction of complex diseases and the increase in life expectancy within its area of influence. 

About the Projects
The presentation of the technical and legal aspects of the projects was in charge of Nancy Zedano, project director of PROINVERSIÓN, who said that the country's challenge is to contribute, through infrastructure, the improvement in the provision of health service for more Peruvians and generate sources of work with integrated, inclusive, viable and sustainable projects such as the two new ESSALUD hospital centers in Piura and Chimbote.

Nancy Zedano explained that the project "Creation of the specialized health services of the Specialized Hospital in Piura Health care Network of ESSALUD, district of Veintiséis de Octubre, province of Piura, department of Piura", contemplates the design, financing, construction, equipment, operation and maintenance of a specialized hospital.
 
Meanwhile, the project "Creation of specialized health services of the Specialized Hospital of Chimbote in the Ancash Health Care Network of ESSALUD, district of Nuevo Chimbote, province of Santa, department of Ancash", consists in the design, financing, construction, equipment, operation and maintenance of a specialized hospital; and of a polyclinic of increasing complexity. Additionally, a temporary hospital will be built to guarantee the continuity of the provision of services during the construction of the definitive infrastructures.

Both projects also include the acquisition and replacement of equipment, the maintenance of hospital infrastructure; as well as the provision of general services and support services in the modalities of gray coat and green coat. He stressed that none of them considers the provision of medical services, since these will continue to be in charge of the Government, through ESSALUD.
 
The cost of both projects will be covered with the contributions of the insured persons, directly benefiting a population of 1,116,559 from the departments of Piura and Tumbes, as well as 531,966 insured persons from the department of Ancash, which will continue to be attended free of charge.
"In addition, it is necessary to mention that each of the hospital projects, by amount of investment and size, will have a dynamic effect on the process of reactivation in the economy of Piura, Tumbes and Ancash, respectively, since they will demand the provision of various types of goods and services, and qualified and unqualified employment in their areas of influence," highlighted the executive director of PROINVERSIÓN.

The concession term is 20 years, which consists of three (3) years for the development of definitive studies of engineering, construction and implementation of the equipment and 17 years of operation and maintenance.

The bidding documents, which contain the conditions and requirements to participate, the activities schedule and the Contracts’ Initial Versions for both projects are available at: https://info.proinversion.gob.pe/essalud-english
