The new complex of the National Children's Specialized Hospital of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine "Okhmatdyt" will allow to perform 4 times more bone marrow transplants - up to 100 instead of 25. Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk made this statement during inspection of construction of the new hospital complex.
"I visited Okhmatdyt today to check personally the state of repair work. Construction of this building began 9 years ago. The Government will shortly complete construction of this protracted project of several generations of power. Just imagine - the launch if this complex will allow to perform, for example, not 25 bone marrow transplantations, but up to 100. These are not just figures, we can save children’s lives 4 times more," the Head of Government noted.
The PM also added that at present, Okhmatdyt can admit 20,000 children for treatment annually, after the start of a full-fledged work the hospital will be able to admit up to 32,000 children for treatment.
The final stage of construction began in December last year on the initiative of the President of Ukraine, the Government and with the support of the MPs, who endorsed allocation of additional funding for the construction.
"The health of Ukrainians is a priority for the Government, and the launch of Okhmatdyt is part of the government's program for high-quality and affordable medicine in Ukraine. Another equally important part is the construction of new emergency medicine centers. This year we will build 200 such centers," the Head of Government said.
According to the PM, his team’s priority is to save as many human lives as possible this year, in particular by enabling them with access to high-quality medicine.
