VELIKY NOVGOROD, December 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The regional ambulance station in Veliky Novgorod on Monday received 17 new specialised vehicles. “It’s more than 10 percent of the entire fleet,” governor of the Novgorod region Sergei Mitin said, handing the keys to the cars to the heads of regional medical institutions. “For the last two years we have nearly by half revamped the ambulance fleet, which made it possible to improve the quality of provision of timely medical aid to the region’s population.”
Nine ambulances will be working in the regional center, the others will be sent to districts. The motor vehicles were bought for 25 million rubles allocated from the regional budget.
During the implementation of the regional healthcare modernization program, the Novgorod region’s medical institutions in 2011-2012 received 78 ambulances, including seven mobile intensive care units, five medical and obstetrical stations and two mobile medical dispensaries.
Three ambulance stations and 24 medical emergency centers respond to 218 thousand calls per year. The ambulance service currently has 161 ambulance cars, and service life of 79 of them has almost expired.
