KURT SANSONE CARE Malta has landed a lu- crative €3 million direct or- der to receive elderly patients who will be transferred out of Mount Carmel hospital, Mal- taToday has learnt. The private company that specialises in homes for the elderly is part of the Vassallo Group, owned by entrepre- neur and former Nationalist Party Mosta mayor, Żaren Vassallo. Care Malta's Sliema home will receive some 120 elderly patients, which the Health Ministry said will be trans- ferred out of Mount Carmel hospital because of refurbish- ment works. But the ministry failed to explain why a direct order for such a value was awarded without a call for tenders. Care Malta has several pub- lic-private partnership agree- ments but in this particular case eyebrows were raised because it was awarded by di- rect order. The ministry ignored ques- tions related to the direct order despite MaltaToday re- peatedly asking for clarifica- tions. "After decades of neglect, this year the Health Ministry embarked on a programme for the reorganisation and general refurbishment of Mount Carmel hospital and for this reason, a number of patients have to be relocated as most wards need drastic infrastructural works," the ministry said when asked the reason for the patient relocation.
