Protests against hospital relocation

Over 80 patients and employees of the Neuromuscular Pathology Centre in Valcele, Covasna County, protested yesterday against the plans to relocate the hospital in Intorsura Buzaului. According to Mediafax, the protesters temporarily blocked the national road going through the locality. “It was a spontaneous reaction from the patients and employees and the protests will continue in the following days too,” Vasile Neagovici, President Sanitas Covasna, stated. “Sanitas Covasna categorically opposes relocating the hospital. The consequences of this relocation would be job losses. The doctors’ refusal to run the shuttle service to Intorsura Buzaului would make it impossible for the patients to receive treatment. Intorsura Buzaului lies 50 kilometers from Valcele and the hospital employees don’t have the money to run the shuttle service,” Neagovici stated on Friday.
