Rumours that the maternity ward at Ettelbrück's hospital is to close have been quashed by Luxembourg's Health Minister.

Responding to a parliamentary question from MP Jean Colombera, Mars di Bartolomeo wrote: “For the moment, no decision has been made regarding a possible closure of the maternity ward.”

Rumours have been circulating for some time that maternity services would go at the hospital, raising concerns about the provision of healthcare, particularly since Wiltz, 26 kilometres in the north, moved its maternity ward to Ettelbrück in 2011.
