Statutes


Introduction

Decree 341/1986, of 13 October (DOGC no. 780, of 19.12.1986), created the Hospital Consortium of Parc Taulí, a public legal entity of an institutional nature integrated by the Generalitat de Catalunya, Sabadell City Council , the Autonomous University of Barcelona, ​​the Hospital and Charity Foundation of Sabadell, the Caja de Ahorros de Sabadell and Sabadell Mutual, Mutualitat de Previsión Social. Subsequently, by Decree 6/1998, of 7 January (DOGC no. 2555, of 13.1.1998), a new wording of the Statutes of the Hospital Consortium of the Parc Taulí de Sabadell was approved, which was renamed Corporació Sanitària Parc Taulí, and the following year, by Decree 126/1999, of 4 May (DOGC no. 2886, of 11.5.1999), the Statutes were updated again, as the consortium entity Fundació Hospital was liquidated. and Casa de Beneficència de Sabadell and the Consortium were subrogated to all rights and obligations, and Sabadell City Council assumed the representative assigned to the aforementioned foundation until then.

The twentieth additional provision of Law 30/1992, of 26 November, on the legal regime of public administrations and the common administrative procedure, introduced by the second final provision of Law 27/2013, of 27 December, on the rationalization and sustainability of the local administration, regulates the legal regime of the consortia. This legal regime has been completed, with regard to health consortia, by Law 15/2014, of 16 September, on the rationalization of the public sector and other administrative reform measures, which includes a single additional provision to Law 15/1997. , of 25 April, on enabling new forms of management of the National Health System, which regulates the legal regime of health consortia.

The aforementioned additional provision twenty of Law 30/1992, of 26 November, establishes that the statutes of the consortia, in general, must determine the Public Administration of affiliation of the entity, and adds that the consortia are subject to the budgeting, accounting and control regime of the public administration of affiliation and the legal regime of the personnel in the service of the consortium must also be that of the public administration of affiliation. However, the special regime for health consortia regulated by the also-mentioned single additional provision in Law 15/1997, of 25 April, establishes that health consortia are attached to the Health Administration responsible for the management of services in their territorial scope of action and allows staff in the service of health consortia to have their own legal regime different from the public administration of affiliation.

In turn, Law 15/2014, of 16 September, on the rationalization of the public sector and other administrative reform measures, has regulated the separation of members and the liquidation of consortia.

The regulation of the new legal regime of consortia entails the obligation to adapt the statutes to the provisions of the aforementioned laws.

For reasons of effectiveness, efficiency and legal certainty, it has been considered more appropriate to approve new statutes, which include the amendments arising from the aforementioned laws and introduce other necessary reforms such as updating the procurement regime and the condition of means. own instruments and technical service; the adaptation to Law 26/2010, of 3 August, on the legal and procedural regime of the public administrations of Catalonia; the recognition of its character as a university hospital, and its organizational structure with different entities linked as its own means.

On the other hand, two of the entities initially consortiumed in 1986, Sabadell Mutual Mutualitat de Previsió Social and the Caja de Ahorros de Sabadell, have lost their original status as non-profit organizations; the first by the merger by absorption in Sabadell Aseguradora Compañía de Seguros y Reaseguros SA, and the second, after the conversion into UNNIM, Union of Savings Banks of Manlleu, Sabadell and Terrassa to become UNNIMBanc (and, finally, BBVA), all circumstances that, in accordance with article 113 of Law 26/2010, of 3 August, made them impossible ex lege (from the time they became for-profit) to continue to be consortium entities and therefore the bylaws need to be amended to rearrange the composition of the governing body of the Consortium in accordance with the current members.

The processing of the approval of the new statutes must comply with the provisions of the Government Agreement of 10 July 2012, which approves criteria for the creation, modification and deletion of investee entities. by the Generalitat, for the participation and decoupling of existing entities and for the processing of certain proposals for Government agreements relating to foundations.

In accordance with the provisions of article 55 of Law 13/1989, of 14 December, on the organization, procedure and legal regime of the Administration of the Generalitat and article 26 o) of Law 13 / 2008, of 5 November, of the presidency of the Generalitat and the Government.

For all this, at the proposal of the Minister of Health, the Government
