Nicorna Healthcare Secures Azerbaijan Hospital Project

Nicorna Healthcare in association with CQA International is pleased to announce that its has been successful in bidding for the design and project management of two 100 bed hospitals in the Republic of Azerbaijan as part of the country's Health Sector Reform Project.


The US$50 million World Bank funded project is anticipated to be completed by early 2012 and will bring much needed modern healthcare facilities to the Northern Rayons of Azerbaijan.


As part of the Project there will also be a number of smaller Village Hospitals and GP Clinics that will serve the outlying rural areas of Sheki, Ishmailli and Agdash in the foothills of the Caucuses Mountains.


James Carrick, Director of Nicorna Healthcare, said,

"This is a wonderful opportunity to bring modern healthcare facilities to the regions which will hopefully make a vast improvement to the delivery of healthcare services for the residing population whilst also improving the prospects of expanding tourism in this beautiful part of the country.

With a 4 - 5 hour drive to the capital Baku along with treacherous conditions in the wintertime these facilities will minimise the need for patients to travel to the capital for treatment."
