The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), that is the heart of the Investment Plan for Europe, supports healthcare investment in Ireland through a loan for the building of new Primary Care Centres.

Text:

The EUR 70 million, 27-year loan from the EIB for 14 new Irish Primary Care Centres represents the EIB’s first support for healthcare investment in Ireland. These centres, providing basic health services, will be built in western Ireland in Sligo, Roscommon, Mayo and Galway, in Limerick, in Waterford, Tipperary and Wexford in the south, as well as Kildare and Dublin. For this project, EIB’s financing represents 49% of the total investment cost of the new facilities.

EFSI was launched a year ago to enable increased lending crucial projects by the European Investment Bank in strategic sectors. Over the last 5 years, Ireland has already benefited from more than EUR 3.3 billion EIB’s investment. But Ireland is not the only country that has benefited from such investments. Since 2005 the EIB has provided investment in healthcare projects in 23 European Union countries.
