The biggest ambulance provider is leaving the Slovak market. The news comes only days after reports that the Danish Falck company is getting the Slovak branch under its full control again.
Falck Záchranná, the biggest ambulance provider in Slovakia, will not file an offer in the tender for ambulance providing licences, with a deadline today. The decision came as a surprise, since the company originally announced it would partake in the tender and gain a hundred more places to provide ambulance services.
Lowering potential risks
The company confirmed that in its press release, and explained that they have analysed the Slovak market "and its commercial and risk profile" in the past six months, with the result that they will leave and "lower the potential risks connected with running an ambulance service", the Sme daily reported.
