Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic on Monday signed a framework agreement on cooperation in preparing the project "Building the national children's hospital," which is the first step in implementing the project for the construction of the hospital in Zagreb's Blato neighbourhood.

The government-sponsored project is worth HRK 42.3 million, of which 85% will be financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The rest of the funds will be secured from the state and Zagreb city budgets.

The new children's hospital will also provide care in gynecology and obstetrics.

After signing the framework agreement, Plenkovic said this strategic government project was aimed at providing the youngest patients with the best possible care.

Health Minister Milan Kujundzic said the new national children's hospital would provide all forms of treatment of children's diseases in one place.
