Supplier Capio AB will operate St. Göran’s hospital from next year. The representatives of the Public Healthcare Services Committee today approved the administration’s proposal. Supplier Capio AB was one of two bidders in the procurement of emergency healthcare at St. Göran’s hospital. Quality was decisive to the outcome in the procurement, which is the largest so far by Stockholm County Council.
More than a year ago the County Council Assembly decided that the emergency healthcare at St. Göran’s hospital should be procured. The aim of the procurement is to give the inhabitants of Stockholm county access to good, safe, high quality and cost effective care. Two companies ultimately competed for the contract, Aleris Holding AB and Capio AB.
- Both bids met the original high requirements of good quality care and went forward for evaluation. As well as price, three quality criteria were evaluated, including how the companies aimed to minimise harm caused while in care”, says Anders Nettelbladt, project leader of the S:t Göransproject in the public healthcare services committee administration at Stockholm County Council.
Both companies’ quality reports in their bids were assessed by evaluation groups with expertise within medicine, law, procurement and finance. The Public Healthcare Services Committee has now decided to follow the administration’s proposal as to which company should operate St. Göran’s hospital.
- The council received two strong bids, however the evaluation showed that Capio AB’s bid was the most beneficial, both in terms of quality and price. The quality criteria weighed more heavily than the price in the decision”, says Anders Nettelbladt.
The awarded contract means that St. Göran’s hospital can offer residents an even higher quality of care in the future. At the same time, the council’s costs for care at the hospital will be somewhat lower than today.
Capio AB’s contract will run from 1 January 2013 to 4 January 2022, with the possibility for Stockholm County Council to extend the contract by a maximum of 4 years.
Challenges to the procurement award decision can be made at the administrative court until 10 April 2012.
