The Voronovskoye Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases has become a symbol of the fight against the pandemic in the capital. It was built in record time – in almost a month.
Today, April 20, is exactly one year since the first patients were received by the Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases “Voronovskoye”.
“The new clinic, built in just a month, has helped a lot in the fight against the pandemic. Especially last spring, when city hospitals were working with a colossal workload. During the year of work, doctors and nurses of Voronovsky saved the lives and restored health of more than 12.5 thousand Muscovites who fell ill with covid. The oldest patient was 95 years old. What effort it took, only the doctors themselves know “, – wrote
in my blog Sergei Sobyanin.
The admission department, medical, diagnostic, operating and intensive care units of the clinic are equipped with the most modern medical equipment. The hospital can accommodate up to 800 patients. Each bed can be transformed into an intensive care unit within 24 hours. Over the past year, patients received about three thousand tons of oxygen and 150 liters of plasma.
More than 17 thousand CT examinations were performed in the diagnostic unit, and 3.2 million examinations were carried out in the laboratory of the center, including 187 thousand PCR tests. In addition, there is a simulation center where doctors are trained in the skills of treating patients with COVID-19. More than 400 doctors have been trained.
The clinical center has hostels, because it is far from the Moscow Ring Road and most doctors work here on a rotational basis.
Sergei Sobyanin is confident that when the pandemic is defeated, the Voronovskoye clinical center will become an ordinary infectious diseases hospital, and doctors and nurses will continue to work for the noble goal of preserving people’s health.
The Voronovskoye Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases has become a symbol of the fight against the pandemic in the capital. It was built in record time – in almost a month. As the Mayor of Moscow previously noted, it was almost impossible… An additional complication was created by the fact that the clinic was being built far from settlements. As a result, 15 kilometers of main gas pipelines, 30 kilometers of electric cables, about 70 kilometers of on-site communications and 20 kilometers of roads had to be laid. At the same time, about 11 thousand builders worked on the construction site and more than 1500 units of construction equipment were involved.
Unlike similar institutions that are being opened in many countries during the fight against COVID-19, this hospital will operate on an ongoing basis. After the end of the pandemic, all types of infections will be treated here. The service life of the housings is designed for several decades.
