Coalition parties GroenLinks, ChristenUnie and CDA read the reports about the financial situation around the Ommelander Hospital Groningen with ‘great concern’. GroenLinks, the largest party in the Provincial Council, wants clarification from the council about the situation. The Province of Groningen has a loan of 10 million euros outstanding with the hospital.
Not even further stripped
“There is no way more care can escape from East Groningen,” says party chairman Hendri Meendering (GroenLinks). ‘We must all be very careful that this modern hospital does not get stripped down. When I read that there is a deficit of 3.6 million this year and 6.5 million next year, it is very worrying. It is very important to maintain the healthcare offering. ‘
Fredric Geijtenbeek (ChristenUnie) does not find the loan the most worrisome. ‘The loan of 10 million euros is not the biggest priority now. The OZG has come to Scheemda to keep the concern for the future under control. The biggest priority is to maintain hospital care, especially bearing in mind that the Refaja Hospital has also been stripped down. ‘ PvdA leader Pascal Roemers agrees. ‘It is important for the PvdA that the hospital stays on its feet. The loan is not the biggest concern at the moment. The question is also who should pay for this. Healthcare parties play an important role in this. ‘
CDA: province can bend
This is also the way faction leader Robert de Wit (CDA) thinks about it. ‘I find this very worrying. It is now important that the Provincial Executive enters into discussions with the OZG to determine the extent of the problem. Distribution of regional care is very important. If that means that we have to be more lenient with the provincial loan, that may well be an option. The main thing is that the commissioner talks to the OZG as far as we are concerned. ‘ D66 foreman Geert Kamminga: ‘I am also concerned. It is important that the province is in talks with the OZG. It is also important to us that health insurers can play a role in the solution. ‘
Keep in your legs
Opposition party Groninger Belang also looks at the reporting with sorrow. ‘Of course it cannot be the case that the OZG will collapse’, states member Petra Blink. ‘Healthcare in the region has already been thinned out. Stadskanaal was first under pressure, now the OZG. The province must enter into a dialogue to keep things going. ‘ SP Member of Parliament Joke Lesman also says: ‘It is a worrying situation. We have to make sure that the hospital stays on its feet. ‘ The PVV and the Party for the North are also of this opinion.

‘Warned more often’
“The quality of life is coming under pressure,” says 50 Plus Member of Parliament Johan ten Hoove. ‘We have warned more often in the past about the situation surrounding the OZG. Apparently it is not a popular hospital among patients. We hear from our supporters that residents of Delfzijl are more likely to choose a hospital in the city of Groningen. That’s a signal, I think. ‘
