A new state-of-the-art Maternity enhances healthcare in Timișoara: first in 50 years officially completed in the region

Ensuring access to medical services is crucial for a high quality of life, especially in the Romanian-Hungarian border region where nearly 4 million residents rely on over 70 urban hospitals.

More than 7 years ago, as the funding strategy for the Interreg V-A Romania-Hungary Programme was shaped, addressing the poor state of hospital infrastructure and outdated medical equipment became a top priority.

Consequently, a significant part of the Programme's budget, exceeding 62 million euros from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), was allocated for healthcare infrastructure development, capacity-building, and harmonising medical service on both sides of the border.

Today, we proudly witness tangible results. In Timișoara, one of Romania's largest cities and the largest in the border region, the old maternity operated in a century-old building. The Interreg V-A Romania-Hungary Programme has funded the region's most modern maternity, the first public one built in Timișoara in the last 50 years. This state-of-the-art clinic, with over 120 beds, boasts cutting-edge facilities, including the most modern in vitro fertilization services in Romania, gynaecological services, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery, physiological obstetrics, and intensive care, making it a pioneering healthcare facility.

Under the strategic initiative ROHU 443-BABYROHU, the construction of Timișoara Maternity began in the summer of 2021 and has recently been completed. While the new maternity is ready, it is expected that mothers and their babies will likely start receiving the required care in the new facility starting June 2024.

Implemented by the County Council of Timiș, University of Szeged, and Emergency Clinical County Hospital "Pius Brînzeu" in Timișoara, the project has benefitted from over 11.7 million euros from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Project BABYROHU was also featured as a good practice among cross-border cooperation projects on the European Commission’s website. Explore the full article on EC’s website here.
