Slovakia's emergency medical rescue service will undergo some changes, the SITA newswire wrote. The Health Ministry decided to expand the number of emergency medical rescue service stations from the current 264 to 270 by the end of this year.

Health Minister Richard Raši said the ministry re-evaluated the location of their bases according to how busy they were last year. Based on this analysis, some stations were relocated. The criteria for re-settlement were proximity to citizens and preservation of the current dispatch frequency. However, 90 percent of stations remain at the same place.

The medical emergency rescue service in Slovakia is in private hands. In 2006, the state awarded four-year licenses for operation of 264 medical emergency rescue stations. Last October, Health Minister Richard Raši said that he would like to see some of them become part of public health facilities but now he is being more cautious on that topic. SITA
