Health Minister Wael Abou Faour terminated on Friday the hospitalization contract of Hotel Dieu de France hospital for failing to admit a disabled woman.
He said: “It violated its contract for refusing to grant treatment to a patient who carried a disability card.”
Sources close to the minister told An Nahar daily on Saturday that the 27-year-old patient was refused treatment despite week-long negotiations between the Health Ministry and hospital administration.
They noted that contract between the Ministry and Hotel Dieu hospital is worth billions of pounds annually.
