The reconstruction of Belgrade’s Emergency Room will begin next year.
The project is currently on display for public perusal in the municipal administration building on Kraljica Marija Street. A new block will be built and the total area of the new building will be four times larger than the current one.
Belgrade Mayor Zoran Radojicic that the rehabilitation of the city’s emergency care centre will be carried out in three phases: a brand new block A will be built in the first phase, block B will be partially upgraded and partially renovated, while the third block, block C, will be reconstructed.
“Belgrade is a capital city with a population of nearly 2 million and it deserves to have a modern emergency room. The current one was built 60 years ago. We are going to ensure that the new ER complies with the European healthcare standards and that it will be able to meet all the needs of Belgrade citizens. The plan is to add another 6,000 square metres of space, which, in addition to the current 2,000, will give a total of 8,000 sqm”, announced the mayor of Belgrade.

The new Emergency Room will have an educational centre, a conference room with 195 seats and five offices including the ones for staff training.
Radojicic added that a call centre will be an extremely important part of the building and will become significantly expanded to become more functional after the reconstruction.
The total value of the reconstruction project is 16 million euro, of which 11 million euro comes from the European Union’s IPA funds, and 5 million euro from the city of Belgrade, i.e. from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The reconstruction works are due to start in the first half of 2020.
