Over the six months of operation of the multifunctional medical centre of the Russian Ministry of Defence in Novosibirsk, more than 1,300 patients were cured of coronavirus infection.
'These are servicemen and members of their families, military pensioners, as well as about 450 people from the civilian population, which is more than a third of the total number of patients,' explained the head of the 425th military hospital, Colonel of the Medical Service Alexei Uskov.
'It is envisaged to allocate up to 50% of the hospital's bed capacity to accommodate civilians. Hospitalization of civilians is carried out in agreement with the Ministry of Health of the Novosibirsk Region,' said the head of the 425th military hospital, Colonel of the Medical Service Alexei Uskov.
Alexei Uskov also noted that at the moment the occupancy rate of the medical centre by patients is 90%.
The diagnostic capabilities of the medical center allow to conduct all the necessary examinations in the shortest possible time, while reducing the time for making a final diagnosis, developing treatment tactics for the patient and the time of his recovery. In addition, the center is equipped with mobile medical equipment that allows you to perform a number of studies directly in the ward.
Thanks to modern equipment: computer tomography, anesthesiology equipment, endoscopy, ultrasound devices, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and a stock of medicines in the medical center, it is possible to treat not only infectious diseases, but also other therapeutic pathologies.
