The HRK 165 million tender includes the construction of a day hospital and surgery ward, an integrated emergency services reception centre, heat pumps and a waste separation system. HRK 70 million has been secured from two tenders for EU funding, HRK 5 million comes from the Fund for co-financing the implementation of European projects, and the remaining HRK 90 has been secured by a loan taken by the Bjelovar General Hospital.
