IBL Pilots Private Hospital Project In The North Of The Country

Must Read

IBL Group says it is implementing the HealthScape Medical & Wellness Village project, which will bring together facilities and services in one location. These include or will include a sports complex, a paramedical centre, a pharmacy (MedActiv) and a multidisciplinary outpatient clinic. It will be built in the location, which was formerly known as Circle Square.

The next step is the construction of a private hospital with 82 rooms and 30 beds for outpatients. This will be developed by Bloomage Ltd and managed by Life Together Medical Clinic Ltd. Both are subsidiaries of IBL.

The aim is to offer the full range of services normally provided by a hospital, including consultations in various medical disciplines, an emergency department, operating theatres, a maternity wing and radiology services, among others.

The Economic Development Board’s analysis

The promoter’s justification for the project is based on government policy and the Economic Development Board’s analysis of the health sector. The latter indicates that the number of private institutions has doubled over the years and future projections indicate that the sector should contribute substantially to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and become a pillar of the economy. Currently, the health sector accounts for about 4.6% of GDP and employs 8500 people.

It should be noted that the aim of the HealthScape project is to make it the leading medical and wellness destination in Mauritius.  In the near future, there is also an alternative medicine centre, a rehabilitation block, a ‘Kids Emporium’, a medical retreat centre and a cultural area, among others,

The private hospital, which will be developed on an area of 3364 m2, is located opposite Espace Maison in Forbach.
