An impressive contract was signed in the Castilian-Leonese health system. The Government presided by Alfonso Fernández Mañueco has resolved a $79 million (€70 million) tender to provide hospitals and health centers in the public regional network with injectable and tablet medicines, as can be seen from the profile of the regional contractor.
The contract in question is expected to last one year and is divided into 23 different lots, which have been awarded to different pharmaceutical companies. Among the winners and those who have won a large part of the contract are Janssen, Merck, Novartis and Roche. The centers to which these drugs are directed are the Complejo Asistencial de Ávila, the Complejo Asistencial de Burgos, the Hospital Santiago Apóstol de Miranda de Ebro, the Hospital Santos Reyes de Aranda de Duero and the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid, among others.
