New Hospital Planned For 11th District
The government will build an 800-1,000 bed “super hospital” on Etele tér in Budapest’s 11th District as part of a wider reorganisation of the city’s health care institutions, health state secretary Zoltán Ónodi-Szûcs confirmed on M1 channel and Kossuth Rádió Tuesday morning.

Ónodi-Szûcs told M1 that there are at least five such “super hospitals” in the provinces where emergency care is available every hour of the year, but none in Budapest.

He said Etele tér at Kelenföld train station would be a relatively good area for development, as it is easy to approach, there is a P&R parking lot in the vicinity, a bus terminal, a metro station, and vacant land where the new hospital can be built.

The cabinet has yet to approve the necessary funds, but it is certain that Ft 200-250 billion will have to be spent in the next four years, largely from domestic funds and to a lesser extent from EU funds.
