Innovations aimed at speeding up the delivery of medical care.

This allows providing the necessary medical care in an order of priority to patients in urgent need. The hospital is also equipped with modern medical equipment. In just eight months 2018, about 9,000 patients were served.
Triage-system is the distribution of patients into groups, based on the need for priority and homogeneous medical services. Patients are divided into three "corridors," depending on the type of treatment and the severity of the condition: from emergency to planned hospitalization. This allows effective and quick provision of emergency medical care for critical patients, that is, you can immediately provide resuscitation, heart defibrillation, etc. The corridors do not overlap, which is of great importance for maintaining the sanitary and epidemiological condition at the facility and preventing spread of pathogens of various infectious diseases.
