A new wing of the National Children's Specialized Hospital “OKHMATDYT” which sees the final stage of construction and installment of equipment is scheduled to put in operation in November or December this year, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced.
He checked the progress of construction that had been restored in autumn of 2016 after a three-year’s break.
"Today we can say that the construction sees its final stage. In November or December, the first wing will be operational. Now the main task is to hold transparent tenders for the purchase of equipment to modernize the clinic", said Volodymyr Groysman.
He stressed that it concerns putting in operation of a part of the hospital - a large medical complex with area of more than 26,000 square meters equipped with MRI scanners and other equipment allowing the doctors to undertake complex procedures for Ukrainian children of various ages. The total amount of funds that can be spent by the end of this year for purchases, as well as installation and construction activities is about UAH 1 billion.
“We will have a nice cutting edge clinic, which will provide highly qualified services”, said the Prime Minister. “Here we demonstrate a rational approach to budget spending. We will prolong construction activities to complete the work in 2019".
It should be noted, the entire complex of the updated "OKHMATDYT" will be more than 67 square meters including several wings with 10 modern surgery departments, 5 oncological and hematological departments and a diagnostic department.
