MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vadimir Putin visited Scientific and Clinical Center of Children's Hematology, Oncology and Immunology in Moscow on Wednesday. The center was opened to patients in January, 2012.
The medical center is expected to build up its capacity to the planned number of 400 patients by May.
Actress Chulpan Khamatova, one of the managers of the "Gift of Life" foundation, which gives support to children suffering from oncologic diseases, accompanied the prime minister during the visit to the Center.
Putin visited a department of clinical oncology, where he talked to two girls on hospital beds aged 11 and 15. The prime minister also visited a bone marrow transplantation department, a tomography diagnostic department and other hospital rooms. Putin was told that before different medical procedures little hospital patients are shown animated cartoon films, which teach them the right conduct during a course of therapy.
A seven-year-old girl, Sonya, who has been treated in Moscow for four years, reminded Putin of his promise he made in June 2011 to take her to the Kremlin. In return, Putin has promised an excursion to the child on V-Day - May 9.
The prime minister also talked to the relatives of sick children, who are provided with board and lodgings at the center, while their children undergo therapy. The parents may see their children even in an intensive care unit, said Chief of the Center Alexander Rumyantsev.
