Construction of new infectious diseases hospital to start next summer

By: J.S., STA

Construction of a new building for the infectious diseases department at UKC Ljubljana, the country’s largest hospital, is slated to start in 2023 and the project is scheduled for completion by early 2026.

It is estimated to cost roughly EUR 100 million and will expand capacity by 100 beds, Health Minister Janez Poklukar said. The current building is old and in need of repair. Its capacity is limited and during the pandemic, most patients had to be treated in other UKC Ljubljana departments.
