Rescue service stations already have operators

THE TRASFORMATION of all health rescue service stations has been completed, and all 259 emergency stations now have operators. The Health Ministry recently finished the second round of its tender for rescue service operators for the last 141 rescue stations.

According to the Hospodárske noviny daily, Health Minister Rudolf Zajac has already signed one third of the operator licenses for the 141 stations.

The ministry tender commission should announce the results of the second round of the tender at the end of this week. In the second round the commission also took into consideration whether a candidate had already been successful in the first round, or, if unsuccessful, whether a candidate had improved its project.

In the second round the commission evaluated 493 applications for 141 emergency stations, which provide ambulance services to a set district. Some 66 candidates, including capital groups, took part in the tender. The Penta capital group, for example, submitted bids for 70 stations.
