Jerusalem health care system to be privatized and become a private hospital
Health care and social services will be privatised in the capital city, as part of a broader plan to reform the health system in the country.
The Jerusalem municipality will be transformed into a health care center, with all the facilities including hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies owned by the municipality.
The municipality will also sell off the land that has been the home of the Jerusalem Municipality for the past 50 years, and will be managed as a private company, with its assets to be sold.
The new company will also be able to sell its land to other private companies, including the Israeli insurance giant, IMS Healthcare.
The municipality is also expected to sell the city’s airport.
The plan was outlined by Health Minister Dr. Avi Doron in a recent speech, as the city was undergoing a massive renovation.
Doron said the city would become a “healthcare center” with the city council taking over the management of all health services, including hospitals and clinics.
The municipal health department is currently under a 10-year lease, and Doron stressed the need for a thorough modernization.
“The new city is the most important place in the region, the most dangerous, the best place for the most serious health problems,” Doron told the crowd.
“I want to give this to you in an appropriate way.
I want you to become the guardian of this new city.
“We need you. “
This is not a transfer of money from the city to the municipality,” Dorons speech said.
“We need you.
We are taking your money and giving it to us.”
In the past, the city has been under the control of the Israeli state, which has been in charge of managing the municipality since the 1970s.
The Israeli government has tried to privatize the health care sector since the 1990s, but failed, with the last attempt being a $10 million privatization of the municipality in 2006.
Following the last privatization attempt, the municipality lost control of all the public facilities, including health care facilities, and the municipality had to find other ways to finance its operations.
The government was forced to sell all the municipality’s properties and sell its assets.
In addition to the privatization, the new municipality will privatize all of the city government offices, the health department, the Palestinian Authority, the Central Bureau of Statistics, and all the city police and fire departments.
Dorons office said that the new municipal health and social centers will serve as a “public safety and social welfare center.”
“This is the city we are taking over,” Dorones speech said, “because we want to make it a health and health care place.”
