In the last two decades, private sector intervention in public infrastructure investments has often been controversial.
The new hospital of Treviso (Northern Italy) is an interesting case of ‘shared value’, ie the alignment of public and private interests for greater value creation.
Thanks to the partnership between the EIB and Lendlease (the developer leading the private sector’s consortium in charge of designing, financing, building and operating the hospital) lending terms were improved compared to market standards and a new investment vehicle established with the savings to invest in innovative solutions designed by independent entrepreneurs to increase the quality of public health services for the local community.
