Over 43,000 health specialists have requested the Health Ministry, from 2007 to present, the necessary documents in order to emigrate, announced on Monday, Health Minister Vlad Voiculescu, at the Government House, on the occasion of the launch of the National Strategy for Human Resources in Healthcare.
"Romania has been facing, for several years, a severe crisis in human resources in healthcare and we know that the low level of income, the poor work conditions and the lack of equipment, the reduced possibilities for professional development are just some of the factors that have led in time to this crisis. As a result, over 43,000 specialists have requested the Health Ministry, from 2007 until today, the necessary documents to emigrate. Although not all of them have left, these figures are enough to make us worry," stated Voiculescu.
MedLife, the leader of the private healthcare services in Romania, purchased the majority shares package of DentEstet, comprising a network of seven dental clinics with revenue of 5.5 million EUR in 2015. This is the first transaction in the dentistry segment for Medlife.
"In the following period, we aim to extend the group of DentEstet clinics with at least one or two units per year, and dentistry is going to become one of the six business divisions within MedLife, along with hyper clinics, labs, hospitals, maternities, and drug stores", says Mihai Marcu, the president of the administration council of MedLife.
