Romania’s healthcare system takes steps toward healing after the pandemic
Following the 2 years of the pandemic, which has strongly accentuated the health system’s shortcomings in Romania, from outdated equipment, and non-compliant furniture to the overcrowding of medical institutions, hospitals are becoming more professional and focusing on the comfort and well-being of the patient and the medical staff.
“We can certainly see the shortcomings of the Romanian healthcare system, both in terms of infrastructure and outdated or non-compliant furniture. The pandemic has shown us that we need to invest substantially in hospitals to facilitate the healing process for patients, which is why we see significant growth potential in the medical segment, which is starting to take steps toward healing. Of course, the pace should be much faster, because any of us can become patients in such a hospital at any time”, says Raluca Dorobanțu, CEO Chairry Design & Furniture.
According to official data, Romania’s healthcare system will benefit from an investment of around €1.7 billion for the construction of at least 25 new hospitals or health units through the PNRR project “New Public Hospital Infrastructure “*.
