SLOVAKIA –Penta Hospitals International, the largest multinational hospital chain in Central and Eastern Europe, has paid Siemens more than €30 million (more than US$31 million) to support and provide services to Slovakia’s Next Generation Hospital Bory.

The hospital, which will open in 2023 and is located in Bratislava, is the largest private project under construction in the country’s healthcare sector.

It will be the flagship hospital for both Penta Hospitals International and the entire Slovak healthcare system, as well as one of the organization’s more than 75 hospitals and outpatient clinics in Slovakia, Poland, and the Czech Republic.

Penta Hospitals International intends to implement Siemens precision medicine and digital health solutions to assist the hospital in caring for patients with the most complex needs.

CT, MRI, X-ray, molecular imaging, and nuclear medicine devices, as well as advanced therapies, are examples of such devices.

Siemens is one of Penta Hospitals International’s largest partners after a 15-year collaboration.

The strategic partnership with Siemens Healthineers will provide the hospital with technological leadership in the field of radiodiagnostic medical technology.

Moreover, the partnership will add value to Penta Hospitals’ care provision by enabling fast and accurate diagnosis, and constant innovations and training of medical staff for provision of high-quality healthcare.

Siemens will provide on-site service as well as the replacement of over 20 imaging and monitoring devices.

It will also contribute to the development of a training program for innovative tools such as Smart Simulator, PEPconnect, and Cinematic Anatomy, as well as AI solutions to assist physicians in their work.

Staff in Slovakia will have access to training and continuing education resources in order to improve patient care.

Bory Hospital’s use of these technologies and the company’s services is expected to reduce technological risks while also lowering total operating costs, streamlining operating processes, and facilitating digital connectivity.

It also ensures that imaging devices remain compliant with industry standards.

The hospital will have six multidisciplinary medical programs and will be able to care for up to 400 patients at any given time, as well as secure care for 35,000 inpatients per year through its flexible bed management system.

It will also facilitate 350,000 outpatient exams per year.
