The ten hospitals, which financial status will be probed, include Sofia's Saint Ekaterina, the Pirogov Emergency institute, the National Cardiology hospital, the Alexandrovska hospital and several pother health institutions in other Bulgarian cities.

Health Minister Radoslva Gaydarski held a meeting with representatives of some of the biggest hospitals in Bulgaria over the problems with the financing of the institutions and the accumulated debts.
