Abou Faour to hospitals: Unprecedented new stage starts

JANUARY 20, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Minister of Public Health Wael Abou Faour assured hospitals on Tuesday that a new stage totally different from the previous ones has started.

Abou Faour’s words came while meeting at his ministry office with private hospitals owners, syndicate head, Sleiman Haroun, heading a delegation from the syndicate.

The minister stressed that “the Health ministry will not accept from this time forth any humiliation against citizens,” calling upon the citizens to file complaints to the ministry or to call the ministry’s hotline 1214 to report any violations.

In their turn, the owners of the hospitals discussed with the minister their notices regarding the way the Health Ministry deals with the hospitals, mainly as for the limited financial ceilings which do not allow hospitals to admit all patients who attend them.
