Description

The aim of the project proposal is to increase the energy efficiency of the hospital "MHAT Pomorie" and to reduce the greenhouse gases and air pollution by replacing the existing heating system in the hospital with a more effective one. The implementation of this project will increase the energy efficiency of the hospital "Pomorie", which will have a positive impact on the environment in the region as a result of the reduced air pollution. The reconstruction of the internal building installations will lead to quality improvement of the hospital services and the competitiveness of the hospital in Pomorie will be significantly increased. Due to the better conditions it will become a preferred institution for health treatment and birth activity among the patients in the whole municipality. So far most of the citizens of the municipality prefer to be hospitalized in larger health institutions in the district city Burgas, mainly because of the poor conditions in the local hospital. This project is crucial not only for creating a sustainable improvement of the social services in the municipality of Pomorie, but for all other public sectors in the region.
