Govt. to take over all estate hospitals – Rajitha
The Government will take over all estate-sector hospitals in the near future with the goal of developing the estate hospital network, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said.
Addressing the Provincial Health Ministers’ Summit yesterday (22 July), the Minister said that the Cabinet approved his proposal to take over the hospitals and monitor those already under the Government.
“The estate hospitals will be taken over gradually by the Government and developed with Government money. Once this is complete, the hospitals will be monitored by the Provincial Councils with financial support from the central government,” the Minister said.
