“Thanks to the grants from the City, Varsovians have modern and well-equipped healthcare facilities at their disposal,” said Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, Mayor of the Capital City of Warsaw. “Over the past ten years we have donated over PLN 1 billion to healthcare facilities, which is reflected in the good quality of the infrastructure and equipment”.

At the same time the SPZOZ Warsaw-Białołęka – the future user of the facilities – is carrying out preparatory works for the project’s implementation.

The contractual deadline for the preparation of the project concept is 31.07.2016.
