Healthcare infrastructures play a vital role in our society and it is essential to be able to meet their financing needs. As the leading banking partner of public hospitals, La Banque Postale supports nearly 2,000 public and private healthcare professionals whose activities focus on hospital care and accommodation for the elderly or disabled.

La Banque Postale supports healthcare sector upgrading projects throughout France to enable them to meet the many challenges inherent in society's digital, ecological and demographic transitions. With its strong corporate citizenship values, it finances major projects stemming from the Ségur de la Santé programme, offers cash management optimisation solutions and supports healthcare players on a day-to-day basis (1).

A major public finance division serving the healthcare sector

La Banque Postale has been the leading bank lender to public hospitals since 2015(2). It supports nearly 2,000 healthcare players, including public hospitals, associations and public nursing homes, to which it grants more than one billion loans each year. The merger between Le Groupe La Poste and Caisse des Dépôts, on the one hand, and La Banque Postale and CNP Assurances, on the other, has created a major public financial division. This alliance will provide greater support for the public policies of the State and local authorities, as well as for regional development.

Factoring solutions

In close partnership with the supervisory authorities in the hospital sector, La Banque Postale has developed a T2A (1) (activity-based pricing) factoring offer to optimise cash management for hospitals. It also enables them to develop their infrastructure and development projects by securing their financial resources, particularly their short-term financing options, and simplifying their internal management.
