YEKATERINBURG, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — A multi-field centre of high-technology medical care will be opened in Nizhny Tagil (Sverdlovsk Region) in December 2013.
The initiator and main investor of the project, Russia’s eldest rouble billionaire, Vladislav Tetyukhin, said at the centre’s presentation that in terms of modern equipment the Nizhny Tagil medical centre will be leading in Russia. According to him, 4.2 billion roubles will be allocated for the project. More than 3 billion roubles of this sum will be spent by the investor, and only 800 million roubles will be allocated from the regional budget. The total area of ··the medical centre will exceed 50 thousand square metres.
“The centre will be engaged in the treatment of orthopaedic and spine problems,” Tetyukhin said. “The patients will be able, in particular, to get both conservative treatment and have endoprosthesis replacement and osteosynthesis of the musculoskeletal system with the use of titanium implants. After complicated treatment people here will be able to undergo a rehabilitation course.”
“Thanks to the centre’s work we will be able to have 170 thousand outpatient visits per year and conduct seven thousand high-technology operations. The rehabilitation department of the centre will be able to have up to 60 thousand patients’ calls per year. The centre will employ 560 medical personnel who will live in houses built in the centre’s territory,” the chief investor said.
According the rouble billionaire, as of today, 90 percent of expensive medical equipment has been delivered to the centre.
