Poland to centralise healthcare administration as reforms fail

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Polish government's plans to devolve healthcare management to the private sector have failed. While the 1999 reform gave hospital directors financial autonomy, a total of 400 of Poland's 715 hospitals are now heavily in debt to a combined total of Zl2,300 million ($587 million). Debt companies have moved in and are charging high interest. The government has had enough and is on the point of regaining its grip on public healthcare.
