Health Ministry advertises over 27,000 hospital job openings

The Health Ministry has announced that the third and last phase of redistribution of the staff from the converted healthcare units had started on Thursday and that the personnel can choose from a total of 27,443 vacancies: 4,827 for doctors and 11,372 for nurses. The Health Ministry published on its website – www.ms.ro – the job vacancies that can be chosen by the staff of the 67 hospitals. The third stage of redistribution is also the last. The process of redistribution will be conducted by the public health directorates on April 28 and 29. According to MS, this phase addresses to those who have made a direct choice (mainly residents who can now find jobs closer to where they live) or people who could not be redistributed in the first phases for various reasons. After the first two phases of the process, a total of 2,761 redistribution decisions were signed. Of those, 376 are for doctors.

The day before, the ministry had announced that all hospitals were supposed to request classification in the following 15 days. The requests made in writing of the public health directorates will be analysed within five days and, based on them, hospitals will be categorized into one of the five classes established, according to competence. ‘We have put together a new hospital classification, one that is simpler and more consistent. Until now, Romania has used a variety of hospital classification. The new classification method was chosen based on international experience and recommendations of independent experts,’ said Health Minister Cseke Attila, quoted in the MS’ release.

The ministry claims the new classification will improve hospital efficiency and decrease therapy costs by preventing hospitalisation of patients with complex pathologies in establishments with lower levels of competence.

Under the new classification, there will be class V hospitals with a limited level of competence and which provide care for chronic patients, single specialty services or palliative services, class IV hospitals with a basic level of competence, that serve the public on a  limited territorial-administrative area and treating conditions of a low degree of complexity, class III hospitals with an average level of competence, class II hospitals (with under-class II M for single profile establishments), with a high level of competence, providing care for the population in the county where they are based, as well as the neighbouring counties, with a high level of equipment and HR, providing highly complex medical services and class I hospitals with a very high level of competence, providing medical services with a very high level of complexity.
