Hospitals Lose Money Amid Pandemic


The Indonesian Private Hospital Association (ARSSI) stated the Covid-19 pandemic had damaged the hospital’s finances. According to ARSSI chairperson, Susi Setiawaty, the cash flows of numerous private hospitals suffered greatly since the number of non-Covid-19 patient visits dropped drastically. The number of outpatients also plummeted and, consequently, decreased the hospitals’ revenues.

“Revenues from services other than Covid-19 treatment is less than 50 percent,” Susi said on Monday (5/18). The number of non-Covid-19 outpatients fell by 60 percent, and the volume of inpatients dropped by 40-60 percent. As a result, many private hospitals were unable to provide several facilities, including personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical personnel. “The PPE is only sufficient for this week. Some can endure until July, but after that, we don’t know,” Susi revealed.
