The Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw has a new director. The Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski, appointed Professor Anna Mosiołek, a specialist in psychiatry and community therapy, as director of the hospital. Her deputy will be Dorota Olczyk, previously associated with the National Health Fund and the ministry.
“Minister Adam Niedzielski appointed a new IPIN management. The director was Prof. Anna Mosiołek, a specialist in psychiatry and community therapy. The deputy will be Dorota Olczyk, previously associated with the National Health Fund and the Ministry of Health. We would like to thank the current director, Dr. Anna Depukat,” the ministry wrote on Twitter on Friday.
In March, the media wrote about the difficult financial situation of the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsawwho had to take loans from a parabank. The facility is so indebted that it cannot afford its current operations. The total liabilities were estimated at approximately PLN 100 million.
Health Minister Adam Niedzielski announced on March 28 that “The Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology is being supervised, personnel decisions have been made, and work is underway on a new, ambitious restructuring plan for the facility.”
The head of the Ministry of Health said then that, unfortunately, the institute in recent years had not been run in a way that ensured balance, care for patients at the highest level and the largest possible number of patients. – In all three spheres, we conducted a very thorough analysis of activity and unfortunately, at the end of last year, I formulated an assessment that the management did not implement the goals that had been set – said Niedzielski.
He explained that these goals were reversing the negative tendency to worsen the financial result and to improve the scientific position. – This negative assessment translated into a change of management – said Niedzielski. In January 2023, Dr. Anna Depukat became the director of IPIN.
