Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The Hessian state government is continuing to work on a solution for the future of the privatized University Hospital Gießen and Marburg (UKGM). There are talks with the majority owner Rhön-Klinikum to achieve a viable solution in the interests of patients, employees and science, said Science Minister Angela Dorn (Greens) on Wednesday in the Hessian state parliament in Wiesbaden. Negotiations always involve both sides.
For several months, the state of Hesse and the majority owner, Rhön-Klinikum, have been fighting over the question of the future financial resources of the UGKM. The background is that the clinic operator had terminated a so-called future agreement for the hospital in June.
