Celsus secures the worlds largest green and social loan in the healthcare sector
This is a groundbreaking piece of financing – both in Australia and internationally.
Being able to get a loan of this size and this credibility in a green and social market is an extraordinary achievement for Celsus and the Royal Adelaide Hospital. This is a landmark transaction for Australia – and South Australia in particular.
Royal Adelaide Hospital Covid-19 Response
The Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) was the designated COVID-19 site in South Australia. The RAH performed its role during the COVID- 19 Pandemic by providing a world-class platform for the State Government and health workers and the South Australian public to minimise the spread and maximise the recovery rate from COVID-19. It is important that we do not become complacent.
The hospital has shone as an example for others contemplating similar public/private partnerships in the future, thanks to the equity investors and debt financiers from around the globe who sourced the finances through Celsus to design, construct and operate the hospital. This is a standout facility from the investors point of view from the design but also the operations. It is a great testament to all the people involved that the RAH has performed so well in this pandemic.
But the true asset is the partnerships that CALHN and Celsus (and Spotless) have developed to deliver excellent care.
