As the Saudi government continues its privatization bid, 17 university hospitals are soon to get privatized.
Under the operation of the government, the Tatweer Holding Company, is now developing operational models to transform their ownership and management – with the choice of either absorbing employees from the Civil Service Ministry or recruiting their own staff. The moves are subject to amendments to the regulations governing university hospitals.
The programme will begin in the Eastern province of the Kingdom and is likely to be based around five health companies covering all of the Kingdom’s regions.
According to the plan over a third of hospitals and primary health centers will be brought under the companies by 2020. A national purchase company will be established to ensure adequate supply of medicines and medical appliances to hospitals and health centers.
Furthermore, Health Minister Tawfiq Al-Rabiah issued an order to form the first health complex in Makkah with four hospitals and 11 health centers under the supervision of a consultative council at King Abdullah Medical City in Makkah.
The government hopes that the reform will help boost the efficiency of hospitals under the new healthcare companies by 25 percent by 2021.
