The ministry also sent notices to 25 private hospitals, renewed the licenses of 13 hospitals, and licensed one new hospital, according to the director of the ministry’s Health Institutions Licensing Directorate, Amin Al-Maaytah.

Maaytah said that the directorate has intensified its supervision of hospitals to ensure the improvement of medical services and to protect the public. Its role includes issuing warnings, giving notices, and taking legal measures, he explained, noting that these procedures are temporary, pending the institution’s rectification of its violations.

The ministry checks on hospitals periodically through field inspections, he said, stressing that it will not tolerate any violation of the laws and regulations in force in order to preserve the medical reputation enjoyed by the medical sector, its hospitals, and centers.

Jordan has 36 public hospitals across its governorates, including Al-Bashir and Prince Hamzah hospitals, while the private sector comprises 69 hospitals, most of which are located in Amman.
