Hos­pi­tal dis­ci­pline.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The head of one of the largest state hos­pi­tals in Thes­sa­loniki, AHEPA, has told Kathimerini that spend­ing has been slashed at the in­sti­tu­tion’s car­di­o­log­i­cal clinic in line with gov­ern­ment ef­forts to cut back pub­lic spend­ing. Some 750,000 eu­ros was spent on pace­mak­ers, de­fib­ril­la­tors and stents in the first five months of this year com­pared to 2.5 mil­lion eu­ros in the same pe­riod of 2010 – more than three times the amount. “We know what each doc­tor spends now,” AHEPA di­rec­tor Gior­gos Ver­goulas told Kathimerini, adding that spend­ing was be­ing closely mon­i­tored and prices ne­go­ti­ated. “The party’s over,” he added.
