The 131 admissions departments included in the Great Construction program have been prepared for the installation of medical equipment, including computed tomography scanners and angiographs. Currently, Donetsk, Kherson and Chernivtsi regions are best coping with this task.
This was announced by the Minister for Communities and Territories Development Oleksii Chernyshov during a conference call with the heads of regional state administrations dedicated to the state of implementation of the Great Construction program.
"By now, there are all the conditions and opportunities to complete the reconstruction of emergency departments by the end of the year. In just four months since the facilities were included in the Great Construction Program, 131 emergency departments are geared up for the installation of the necessary medical equipment. At present, the heads of the regional state administrations need to speed up the preparation and implementation of construction works, as this also implies the strengthening of our medical system to combat COVID-19," Oleksii Chernyshov stressed.
It should be noted that a total of 210 emergency departments of hub hospitals across the country take part in the Great Construction program. Reconstruction is carried out taking into account the limitations of the pandemic.
