The government-sponsored project is worth 42.3 million kuna, of which 85% will be financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The rest of the funds will be secured from the state and Zagreb city budgets.

The new children's hospital will also provide care in gynaecology and obstetrics.

Health Minister Milan Kujundžić said the new national children's hospital would provide all forms of treatment of children's diseases in one place.
