Healthcare group Meavita about to collapse

The healthcare group Meavita, which provides nursing care to 100,000 people, is on the verge of collapse, junior health minister Jet Bussemaker told MPs on Tuesday.

The company is to apply for court protection from creditors for parts of its operations, the minister said.
Meavita, which has contracts with 60 local authorities, was formed in 2006 following a merger of four companies and has never made a profit.
Local authorities, the ministry and the Dutch health authority will make sure that healthcare services to Meavita’s clients are guaranteed, Bussemaker said.
