Audit: Prague hospital wastes 3.4 billion

Prague’s Na Homolce hospital “ineffectively, uneconomically and unaccountably” spent 3.4 billion crowns, or nearly 154 million US dollars, over the past five years, the news agency ČTK reported on Saturday quoting a Health Ministry audit. Another more than 350 million crowns were spent without proper authorization, according to the report which is to be presented to the lower house of Parliament. In June, the hospital’s former director was arrested on corruption charges, along with several of his collaborators.
