Saxony-Anhalt reserves cash for hospital medtech:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt has doubled its contribution to the hospital budget for 2003. The move, which takes the amount of state funding to E34.5m ($34m), comes despite the government's aim to make savings within the overall state budget. State health minister Gerry Kley said: "We cannot make savings in this area if healthcare is to be assured on a modern, medical-technological level." The money can either be used to purchase large-scale, cost-intensive medical equipment, or for building projects within the hospital sector. It brings Saxony-Anhalt into line with the other federal states, where the average level of hospital funding works out at some E2,250 per bed.
