Tehran, Dec. 29 – More than half of Iran’s hospitals have declared bankruptcy in the past four years according to the head of Medical Department of University of Gilan (northern Iranian province).

Dr. Fariborz Ghanaati stated that since the government introduced a scheme four years ago to privatise the majority of Iran’s hospitals, 350 out of the 550 hospitals throughout Iran have declared bankruptcy.

Unless the scheme is reversed, there will not be any functioning hospitals in Iran, he added.

He said the present system has serious flaws and is easily mismanaged and prone to corruption.
