Today, the President of the Republic of Srpska visited the site where a new hospital is being built in Trebinje.

On that occasion, the President of the Republic of Srpska pointed out that this hospital should be completed in shorter than a year, which is far ahead of schedule.

The President Dodik said that this project, after the University Clinical Centre in Banja Luka, is the largest investment in the health sector, for which the Republic of Srpska allocated BAM 128 million.

The President of Srpska said that there is an ambition for this health institution to be of regional character and to attract service users not only from Herzegovina, but also from Montenegro and Croatia.

The President of the Republic stated that this construction is one of the highest quality in recent times and that funds are regularly paid to the contractor.

“Until now, BAM 18 million has been paid to the contractor. In the rebalancing of the budget for this year, we allocated BAM 25 million for this facility. In the next three years, BAM 32 million will be determined, and the same amount in the fourth year from now, and another five million BAM will be provided when the works are completed”, said the President Dodik.

The President of Srpska emphasized that he was satisfied with what he saw today and that he believes that in the spring, when he visits the site of the works again, he will be able to see that a significant part has been completed.

“People only believe what they see. I invite all the people of Trebinje and those who thought that this was just some story, to come here and see and be a team that looks forward to this success”, said the President of the Republic.

The President Dodik thanked the people who were ready to help in the development of the project, such as Doctor Predrag Peško.

The President of Srpska pointed out that all attention is focused on the selection of new doctors, specialization and training, stating that all this has no meaning if there is no educated staff.

“I look forward to the fact that around 50 new workers, including doctors and nurses, will be employed when the new hospital is completed”, said the President of the Republic.
