The number of sick houses in Germany is likely to be reduced Karen Millen Dress
drastically to a recent report indicates that threatens almost every sixth of the more than 2,000 clinics in Germany, the bust. For patients, but even that could have advantages.
Berlin - Germany could in the future fewer patients, but perhaps better hospitals are available: Almost every sixth of the approximately 2050 hospitals threatened with bankruptcy. This is the result, the Rhenish-Westphalian Institute for Economic Research (RWI) in its current hospital report. Thus, the situation has deteriorated significantly: Some 15 percent of hospitals are in danger of insolvency. 2011 there were only twelve and the year before, only ten percent. Especially small community hospitals are affected.
Many of the approximately 300 hospitals in a critical situation could no longer be continued for years, said study author Boris Augurzky RWI. The reasons for the economic difficulties he called rising wages and energy costs and structural problems. Karen Millen Could help the houses specialization - for patients according to the experts could be even better because the quality would increase the supply.
The researchers see the billion dollar market of clinics at a turning point. In the future the costs would rise faster than revenues. Small houses with large supply and high cost, they give little chance. "Specialized clinics are set up cost significantly more,"Karen Millen Dresses said Augurzky. Hospitals with no discernible economic future and significant importance for a region should be abandoned.
Laggards are Hesse, Baden-Wuerttemberg and Lower Saxony
The association of statutory health insurance Karen Millen Dress urges hospitals to improve efficiency. "If individual, close unprofitable hospitals, the care given the high density of hospitals as a whole is not in danger, even though it might in some cases as in the country mean longer distances," said association spokeswoman Ann Marini.
Received should be small houses with total care if it for miles there is no alternative, said Augurzky. The most difficult was the situation according to the study in Hesse, Baden-Wuerttemberg and Lower Saxony / Bremen. At best, the economic situation of the hospitals in Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, followed in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, North Rhine-Westphalia. In the middle are Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
For the public, so as municipal buildings, the situation with least 18 percent in danger of insolvency at the most critical. The cash expenditure on hospital care rose within a year by about 2 to 61 billion euros.
