Health Access International provides valuable advisory services to its international private, governmental and NGO clients in various parts of the world:

  • Feasibility studies
  • Project funding
  • Tender management
  • Hospital design
  • Medical equipment planning

Feasibility Study
The availability of a detailed feasibility study is often a key prerequisite for a successful project. Feasibility studies are typically required for hospital expansions, modernisations or for a green field new hospital to be constructed. But it can also be for the supply of medical equipment and systems.

Our healthcare consultants, architects and financial and other specialists cooperate closely with the client to achieve predefined deliverables. Topics normally addressed are:

  • Market analysis
  • Operational plan
  • Financial plan
  • Funding plan
  • ESIA (Environmental & Social Impact Assessment)
  • Project implementation plan

A pre-feasibility study with reduced scope or depth is also possible.

Funding plan
We optimise the project, based on the client’s existing financial figures, the proposed investment and cash flow projections, to qualify for commercial finance, export finance, grants or concessional loans and include an analyses of various funding scenarios. For more details on possible financing structures and the implementation of the Funding Plan, see our Financing page.

Conceptual Design
Based on a site survey, workshops with the client and expert meetings, a Program of Requirements is developed based on which, a conceptual design of the hospital or clinic is established by our architects. The conceptual design is an important part of the feasibility study as it provides crucial input for the investment calculation.

Medical Equipment Planning
The functional selection and budgeting of medical equipment and related systems can be done for an existing facility as a separate project or as an integral part of a hospital new build process. In case of a hospital new build design, our biomedical engineers perform an early analysis of (non) medical equipment requirements and budgets as this is relevant for the financing structure chosen and the technical interface with the hospital design. It also enables us to prepare a competitive and reliable procurement process later on in the project.

Development phase
Once the feasibility of the project has been proven, the development phase starts. Our  hospital architects create a preliminary design that meets international and local standards. This phase includes a detailed medical equipment plan, a more accurate investment calculation, legal aspects, a project implementation plan and social and environmental impact (ESIA) studies. The funding plan will be implemented in close cooperation with the client and financial partners.

Project phasing
For financing and risk control reasons, your long term plans are phased into individual projects and a Master Plan ensures an integrated development of the total building structure.
