Clinics and hospitals go on national strike

Clinics and hospitals and diagnostic centers unions -ADECRA and CEDIM- are on a 24-hour national strike, demanding an increase in pre-paid medical cover fees.

Medical centers will only admit emergency cases and they are currently considering a new walkout next week, this time for 48 hours, if their demands are not met.

In today’s press briefing, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich said the Superintendency of Health Services is “working to reach an agreement” and that progress should be expected.

The head of the Chamber of Medical Diagnosis Institutions, Javier Vilosio, said “talks are required” to solve the situation. “We are not asking for an increase in tariffs or sinecuras, we need a council for a regular update, as established by laws 26.682 and 23.661".

The President of the Clinics, Sanatoriums and Private Hospitals of the Argentine Republic (ADECRA), Jorge Cherro, said: “The private health sector crisis seems to be endless. The situation is truly worrying” and pointed out the existence of a gap lead by an increase in costs.
