The development of the healthcare sector in Cyprus and the attraction of foreign investment, medical tourism, as well as the transformation of the country into a high-level regional healthcare center is not an easy task.
However, the interest shown by foreign investors in the construction of new hospitals in Cyprus is an important step towards achieving the above goals.
Seven new medical institutions are expected to appear on the island in the near future. It is noteworthy that five of them will be built in Nicosia, and two in Limassol.
The grandiose project will be implemented thanks to a strategic agreement between the Cyprus HC Management of Medical Center PLC (MMC) and the Israeli Hadassah Medical Ltd, a subsidiary of the world-famous medical organization Hadassah Medical Organization.
The construction of a large-scale medical complex is already underway in Nicosia. This is a unique project of its kind. The hospital will provide the highest quality medical services across the entire range of hospital services, even in specialized areas that have not yet been offered in Cyprus. The project of a new diagnostic center in Limassol will also begin soon.
The physical presence and prestige of the Hadassah organization in Cyprus, as well as access to the medical potential of unprecedented know-how and technologies are a guarantee of the success of the project.
The total investment in it exceeds 150 million euros. A strong positive impact on the development of the economy of Cyprus is expected, while more than 1,500 jobs will be created, which will be received by citizens of Cyprus. The building area will be 23 thousand m2. The new center will open its doors to the whole world in 2024.
