EIB loan is a huge vote of confidence in the new Children’s Hospital project and in Ireland – Minister Harris

Minister for Health, Simon Harris, today (Friday) welcomed the announcement by the European Investment Bank of its decision to provide a loan of 490 million euro to Ireland to support the construction of the new children’s hospital and associated outpatient and urgent care centres. This is the EIB’s largest ever single capital loan in Ireland and the loan represents almost  half of the 1bn euro exchequer investment required to develop the core hospital and the two outpatient and urgent care centres.
