Vojvodina took over 47 healthcare institutions
The Provincial Government has decided to take over the founding rights of 47 healthcare institutions in the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. These are 44 community health centres and three institutes, namely the Institute for Students’ Healthcare Novi Sad, the Institute for Workers’ Healthcare Novi Sad and the Institute for Emergency Service Novi Sad, the provincial government has announced. It is explained that the new Law on Health Care foresees Vojvodina taking over the founding rights over healthcare institutions that perform activities at the primary level of healthcare. Exceptions are pharmacies established at the territory of province, over which the local self-government had founding rights. For the use of the rights and obligations of the founders over community health centres, funds are planned in the Proposal of the Provincial Assembly Decision on Vojvodina’s Budget for 2020.
