News / Belgrade’s Tiršova 2 children’s hospital is becoming a reality
During his visit to Serbia, European Commissioner for Enlargement, Olivér Várhelyi visited the construction site of the Tiršova 2 children’s hospital together with the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić. The construction of the hospital began in October and is being supported by the European Union with over €35 million.
The European Union has never supported such a large health infrastructure investment, Commissioner Várhelyi pointed out. He added that such a project is a consequence of the Covid pandemic, which taught us to appreciate health even more. “Health, especially the health of our children, is the most important thing,” said the Commissioner, adding that Tiršova 2 will open in about three years’ time. “I am sure that patients will appreciate this great contribution to the city and the state,” he concluded.
The event was also attended by the EU Ambassador to Serbia, Emanuele Giaufret; Minister of Health, Zlatibor Lončar; Minister of European Integration, Jadranka Joksimović; Mayor of Belgrade and former director of Tiršova, Dr Zoran Radojičić; Director of the Public Investment Office, Marko Blagojević; and Siniša Dučić, director of Tiršova 2.
