MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Konstantin Pavlov held a working meeting on the construction of a new dispensary on the Electrozavodska Street, 22-A in the Pokrovsky District.
Chief physician of the Center for Primary Health Care No. 2 Svitlana Kvitkovska said, "In other cities, medical institutions are being closed, and in Kryvyi Rih, city authorities are holding the situation and developing medicine. Here there will be an Outpatient Clinic No. 4 of our center, which will serve the residents of the 5th Zarechny microdistrict. There will be 7 family doctors in the ambulance; we will provide primary health care. There will be laboratory examinations here, analyzes will be carried out. There will also be a pharmacy, an electrocardiograph, and a physiotherapy room."
Konstantin Pavlov noted that new dispensaries open both in microdistricts with multi-storey buildings and in distant areas of Kryvyi Rih, as the mayor of the city Yuriy Vilkul insisted. "Within the framework of the joint project with the World Bank in Kryvyi Rih, the most outpatient facilities for family medicine will be opened in the Dnipropetrovsk region – ten. This plus to already almost forty exists. For this, our city began to deal with this a few years ago and before all in the region met all the necessary requirements of the World Bank. My colleague Andriy Halchenko did a lot. Outpatient clinics are the best opportunity to bring maximally affordable medical care to a large number of city residents," the parliamentarian said.
The need for such a center of primary care at Electrozavodska Street is obvious. The ambulance will provide modern, high-quality medical services to more than 13,000 residents of the surrounding area, including almost 3,000 children and nearly 3,000 pensioners. And they will have to get to the dispensary no more than a kilometer. Moreover, for someone this distance will be only 100 m.
"Now, the main thing is the systematic implementation of a project very necessary for Kryvyi Rih citizens. I personally will monitor the progress of repair and construction works, the equipment of this and other dispensaries with modern equipment, diagnostic devices and analyzers," Konstantin Pavlov emphasized.
Now, 38 outpatient clinics are already operating in Kryvyi Rih; until 2020, it is planned to create another 27: 10 – with the support of the World Bank, 17 – at the expense of the city budget.
