On June 17, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the Children’s Haematology, Oncology and Clinical Immunology Centre, the press office of the President of Uzbekistan reports.
The President inspected the conditions created at the Centre for young patients and adults who accompany their children to the Centre and talked to the hospital staff and patients.
The new Children’s Haematology, Oncology and Clinical Immunology Centre replaced the former Republican Haematology Centre, where both adults and children got treatment. The old hospital had an insufficient bed stock, offered unsatisfactory conditions of stay and used the outdated methods of chemotherapy.
The number of hospital beds has been increased to 160 in the new Centre that offers the comfortable conditions of stay to children and adults; the number of medical staff has been increased.
170 billion soums were allocated to supply the Centre with medicines, which is 60 times as much than it was allocated in 2016. The departments of oncohematology, haematology, oncology, resuscitation, haemodialysis and plasmapheresis and the polyclinics are stuffed with state-of-the-art diagnostic and medical equipment, foreign specialists are invited and the number of stem cell transplantation surgeries has increased.
State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment allows conducting molecular, genetic and immunohistochemical tests at the Centre.
The development projects of the Centre were presented during the visit of the President.
