Government to upgrade Tapolca hospital

Deals

The struggling hospital in Tapolca, western Hungary, which was downsized a few years ago due to overcapacity, has now become a flashpoint for the government as the date of the Tapolca by-election approaches, index.hu reported yesterday. 

Fidesz candidate Zoltán Fenyvesi and secretary of state Gábor Zombor announced a HUF 2.3 bln expansion project at the hospital yesterday, after closing a number of its departments in 2012. The move has triggered a series of demonstrations by Jobbik’s current candidate in the electoral region.
