Mater Dei needs another 500 acute beds

Mater Dei Hospital needs 500 more beds to handle acute cases, 100 more than the figure estimated by the Health Ministry last January, according to a report co-authored by the World Health Organisation.

The European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies reviewed Malta’s health system as part of its Health System in Transition series, updating the last review conducted in 1999.

The report notes that the number of beds in acute hospitals is below the EU average and has decreased by around 28 per cent over the past decade.
