Capio wins tender for Lundby Hospital in Sweden

Capio, one of Europe’s leading healthcare companies, has been commissioned to run Lundby Hospital in Gothenburg for six years with the possibility of a  three-year extension by the regional healthcare authorities (Region Västra Götaland) in Sweden.

The announcement that Capio was the winner of the tender for Lundby Hospital was made today in an award notice from Region Västra Götaland. The decision may be appealed by the other bidders within ten days. 

- Out of four bidders, Capio Lundby Sjukhus AB submitted the best bid both in terms of quality and cost, says Ralph Harlid, Director at the Health and Medical Care authority in Region Västra Götaland in a press release.

Capio has successfully operated Lundby Hospital for sixteen years, and the current health care agreement expires in 2011. The new agreement comes into force on 1 January 2012 for a term of six years with the possibility of a three-year extension.

-  At Capio Lundby Hospital we are very excited and proud to have received renewed trust and we will continue to focus on the issues close to our hearts: high quality, accessibility and good treatment of our patients, says Annelie Grundius, CEO, Capio Lundby Hospital. 

In large, the contract covers similar activities as today, with some changes. The contract includes an offering of both developed primary healthcare and specialist care.

-  From our point of view, winning the tender is a sign that Capio's focus on providing high quality healthcare services is right and we look forward to continuing to develop Lundby hospital both as a local hospital and a specialist hospital, says Åke Strandberg, Head of Business Area Capio Specialist Clinics.

The Health and Medical Care authority in Region Västra Götaland decided to initiate a tender process for Lundby Hospital in June 2009. To participate in the tender, offers were to be submitted in October 2010. In addition to Capio, three healthcare providers participated in the tender.
