"The reasons the Al-Mattla [Augusta Victoria] Hospital in Jerusalem stopped accepting patients
This Sunday morning, Al-Mattla Hospital in occupied Jerusalem sto...pped accepting patients due to a financial crisis, a result of the Palestinian Authority's cumulative debts to the hospital.
In a press release on Sunday, the hospital's management announced that the management regretfully will no longer be able to accept patients, especially new patients who need chemotherapy or other expensive therapies, which are not even available from hospital warehouses due to the financial crisis.
They clarified that the hospital's reserve of drugs was running out and the available quantities were below the minimum required to meet patients' needs and to actively and safely provide treatment in any hospital the size of the Al-Mattla Hospital.
In addition, the hospital desperately needs to save 23 million ILS to cover the cost of drugs and essential treatments for children, women, and men suffering from cancer and kidney disease, and who rely on the hospital's treatments.
The debts owed the hospital by the Palestinian Authorities reach 150 million ILS as of April 2017, made up by the sum of medical treatment of over one year for patients from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank who were transferred by the Palestinian Ministry of Health. The crisis is growing daily due to the large number of patients transferred by the ministry, where the average expense of their monthly treatment is 14 million ILS.
The hospital clarified that the Authority's delay in repaying its debts to the hospital has led to a deep financial crisis that reached the point to which the hospital can not accept new patients.
Walid Namur, Director of the Hospital, confirmed that support was given to the hospital by Minister of Health Jawad Awad and Ministry Secretary As'ad Ramlawi, but said that "the problem is with the Ministry of Finance, and for exactly five months we have been in both direct and indirect negotiations with the Minister of Finance, with a huge intervention by the Minister of Jerusalem Affairs, Adnan Al-Husseini."
He added that "when we started talking with the Ministry of Finance, debts were at 80 million ILS, and today it reached 150 million ILS, and is increasing by 14 million ILS each month."
He pointed out that "on one day, a very large number of patients from Gaza and the West Bank come to us, and every day between 700 and 800 sick people enter the various hospital department."
