MOSCOW, October 12 (Itar-Tass) — More than 100 costly medical apparatuses, including tomographs, will be delivered to Moscow hospitals and polyclinics by the year's end, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin declared on Wednesday when he visited Moscow city hospital No. 12. The mayor was shown into a cardio- surgery department of the hospital, visited its larynx pathology department and talked to patients on hospital beds whom the mayor wished to get well soon.
Head Doctor Alexander Salikov was proud to show a super modern computer tomograph recently established in the hospital. Sergei Sobyanin said that a first batch of modern medical equipment, including 58 computer tomographs, had been delivered to Moscow already. The mayor emphasized that the city bought the sophisticated and costly equipment at an advantageous price, which was almost three times down the price paid for a similar tomograph earlier.
All the equipment the city buys is assembled as soon as it is delivered and put into practical use, Sobyanin said. Sixty more similar sophisticated medical apparatuses are to be delivered by the end of the year; it will be established in hospitals and polyclinics of the city, the mayor said.
“A program of modernization (of the city health service) is acquiring a realistic face: equipment is arriving and medical staff are being taught to handle it," Sobyanin added.
