Around € 300 million could be spent on hospital debt relief. Minister of Health Vladimír Lengvarský (OĽANO nominee) informed about it on Thursday. He also commented on the construction of hospitals in the recovery plan.
“The process of hospital debt relief is in its final phase, and it will be completed within two to three weeks. Then there will be a payment to individual creditors, “said Lengvarský. According to him, the total amount should depend on what discounts and discounts creditors make.
Hospitals could apply for debt relief worth 575 million euros. In March, the Ministry of Health signed mandate agreements with medical facilities that expressed an interest in participating in debt relief.
Convening of a coalition council for the construction of hospitals
As Minister Lengvarský further informed, he will request the convening of a coalition council in connection with the construction of hospitals from the recovery plan. He has not introduced specific projects yet. “I will ask for a coalition council to be presented, where I will present a proposal for a solution that would both meet the government’s program statement and, secondly, so that we can use the money from the recovery and resilience plan effectively,” he said.
According to him, the solutions that Lengvarský plans to present can be implemented by the end of 2026, which is envisaged in the recovery plan. It announces the construction of four to five hospitals. “We anticipate that some hospitals will be in the rough construction stage and some will be completed completely,” he said, adding that the issue of construction would be resolved very soon.
The Recovery Plan is part of the mechanism to support recovery and resilience under the EU’s pan-European temporary instrument Next Generation, which is the largest stimulus package in the history of the European Union. The aim is to rebuild Europe after the pandemic. A key part of the Slovak Republic’s Recovery and Resilience Plan is the already approved reform of the hospital network. The reforms will also affect the outpatient sector, acute care, follow-up and long-term care, as well as mental health care.
