The first stage of construction of a new building for the Kamchatka Regional Hospital will receive 6.9 billion rubles. The order on the distribution of these funds in 2021–2023 was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
The money has already been provided in the federal budget within the framework of the state program “Healthcare Development”. The new building is due to open in 2023. Its area will be more than 33.6 thousand square meters. m.
The Kamchatka Regional Hospital named after A.S. Lukashevsky is located in nine buildings, built in the 1950-1970s. Body wear exceeds 70%. The construction of the new building has been going on for many years. A lot of money was allocated from the federal budget for these purposes, but as a result, funding was suspended due to non-use of funds. The completion date of the object was postponed several times.
Mikhail Mishustin drew attention to this problem during working trip to the Far East in August 2020… Head of Government personally visited the regional hospital and talked to medical professionals. “I am scared for the inaction and carelessness that took place for many years during the construction of the hospital,” he said at the time. – For almost ten years, nothing has budged, and the money was put in the federal budget. There was a lot of carelessness among contractors who simply did not have time to hand over anything. I promise you that Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin and I, together with the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services, will put this construction under control. “
