U listopadu 2014, Komisija otvori u dubini istrage concerning public compensation granted to five public hospitals in Brussels, the CHU Brugmann, the CHU Saint-Pierre, the Queen Fabiola Children’s University Hospital, the Iris South Hospitals, and the Institut Bordet, together known as the IRIS hospitals. The Commission was obliged to look into the matter initially as a result of complaints received from two associations of Brussels private hospitals, alleging that unlawful state aid had been granted to the five public IRIS hospitals. The complaints relate to the fact that, since 1996, these hospitals have received payments from six Brussels municipalities to compensate the deficits they incurred in providing health and social services of general economic interest. Private hospitals in Brussels do not receive such deficit compensation.

On the basis of its in-depth assessment, the Commission has found that the public IRIS hospitals have been entrusted with a number of additional obligations on top of the minimum requirements that apply to all hospitals in Belgium. These additional obligations include for example the duty to treat all patients in all circumstances (including non-emergency situations), regardless of patients’ ability to pay. They ensure that also the poorest members of the Brussels population have access to the hospital services they need and guarantee the accessibility to high quality hospital care for all. Since the financing sources common to both public and private hospitals are insufficient to cover the costs of these additional obligations, the public IRIS hospitals incur deficits. By compensating these deficits, the Brussels municipalities ensure that the IRIS hospitals can continue to fulfil their public service obligations.

U svom istraživanju, Komisija je provjereno da, u skladu sa pravila državnih potpora EU-a o uslugama od općeg gospodarskog interesa, Šarenica bolnica primila prekomjerne kao uplate općina nikad nije prešla stvarne deficite šarenice bolnice koji su nastali zbog svojih obveza pružanja javnih usluga. Na temelju toga, Komisija je zaključila da je financiranje deficita dodjeljuje općinama Bruxellesu na šarenici bolnicama jer 1996 je u skladu s pravilima EU-a o državnim potporama.

pozadina

The five public general hospitals existing in the Brussels Capital Region were grouped into the IRIS network in 1996. These hospitals are the CHU Brugmann, the CHU Saint-Pierre, the Queen Fabiola Children’s University Hospital, the Iris South Hospitals, and the Institut Bordet. Together, they currently operate around 2425 of the 7,260 hospital beds that are provided by general and university hospitals in the Brussels Capital Region. The five IRIS hospitals employ nearly 10 000 staff, provide over 1 million consultations per year, and constitute Belgium’s largest emergency service.

In September 2005, the Commission received a complaint from two associations of Brussels private hospitals alleging that unlawful State aid had been granted to the five Brussels public IRIS hospitals. In its decision of 28 October 2009, the Commission concluded that the compensation of the deficits incurred by the IRIS hospitals since 1996 was compatible with the internal market. Following an appeal by one of the complainants, the General Court annulled that decision on 7 November 2012, ruling that the Commission should have opened an in-depth investigation to gather additional information because the complainants’ arguments raised doubts as to the compatibility of the deficit financing of the additional obligations fulfilled by the IRIS hospitals. In light of this judgment, the Commission opened an in-depth investigation on 1 October 2014.
