      MK Maklev: Hospitals Must Be Privatized


      MK Uri Maklev told the Knesset Welfare and Health Committee on Monday that "It is absolutely essential that all Israeli hospitals be privatized as soon as possible. Under the current circumstances, patients have to wait for six months in order to obtain an appointment with a specialist, and many opt for private health insurance and physicians for lack of regard from government health organizations."
