Novotný: Merger of DKC with NUSCH a success for opposition

Parliamentary Healthcare Committee chairman Viliam Novotný (SDKÚ-DS) has said the merger of the Children's Cardiocentre (DKC) with the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NÚSCH) in Bratislava was a success for the opposition.

Parliamentary Healthcare Committee chairman Viliam Novotný (SDKÚ-DS) has said the merger of the Children's Cardiocentre (DKC) with the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NÚSCH) in Bratislava was a success for the opposition.

The Health Ministry had been preparing the merger since January because NÚSCH was saddled with Sk400 million (€13.2 million) in debts. Health Minister Richard Raši agreed on June 11 that the merger had considerable advantages. Emptying the premises of the DKC, which is located in the same building as the Children's University Hospital and Clinic (DFNsP), eliminates the problem of shuttling children between many related health care facilities located more than 10 kilometres from DFNsP. It will also allow the parents of children with cardiovascular diseases to stay there.

DKC director Pavol Kunovský said that the money collected from the public under the DKC Foundation will be used either to construct the are where the parents stay or for medical equipment. TASR
