It was proposed to establish and operate these hospitals in partnership with private providers where better services could be provided by drawing upon each other’s strengths, pooling and optimizing resources, and harnessing skill sets and managerial capacity of the private sector to deliver cost effective and high quality super specialty health-care to the targeted beneficiaries on a sustainable basis. The design and development of program and process of selection of private provider was done by Transaction advisors Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India (P) Limited.
GNCTD has been allotted land by Delhi Development Authority on lease basis and constructed the hospital building in both the locations, Government would provide existing land and building on “as is where is” basis, and would grant a long term concession to operate and maintain hospital as per transaction agreement.
Private provider is expected to procure equipment, operate and manage the hospital for a period of 30 years. Government defined targeted beneficiaries, patients coming from below poverty line and other categories need to be provided free treatment, provider treatment facilities in specified super specialties which is mandatory, medical professionals and other personnel would be recruited by the operator and would be on his rolls. At the end of the concession agreement all equipment, furniture and fixtures would be retained by government and manpower has to be retained by private provider.
Two stage competitive selection process was adopted for selection of bidders in 2008, In the first stage Request for Qualification was called from interested private providers meeting the criteria, about 30 hospital providers participated of which 12 were shortlisted, Proposals were invited from these bidders and selection was to be done on technical strengths and financial bids.
Government subsequently felt that equity would be compromised by involving private provider in the hospital project and the project has been pending, final decision is yet to be taken.
