Employees and veterans of the medical service of the Southern Military District (YuVO) celebrate the 80th anniversary of the 1602nd military clinical hospital of the Russian Defense Ministry, located in Rostov-on-Don.

The 1602nd Military Clinical Hospital of the Southern Military District is one of the oldest medical institutions in Russia. Currently, the medical institution has more than 30 specialized medical departments, through which about 15 thousand patients pass annually. The total bed capacity with the branches of the hospital is 1140 beds and more than 2 thousand medical specialists.

An important stage in the modern development of a medical institution was the construction of a medical and diagnostic building, which included operating rooms and laboratories equipped with modern high-tech medical equipment and equipment of an expert class; as well as the construction in the shortest possible time of a multifunctional medical center, which has become a center for the fight against an invisible enemy – a new coronavirus infection.

The experience of the hospital doctors in the fight against coronavirus infection was also required outside Russia. In April 2020, the combined detachment went to provide assistance to the residents of Serbia and Italy. For three months of the mobile hospital’s operation, doctors have provided assistance to more than 2 thousand patients.

The hospital is completely autonomous and has on its territory an additional water purification station, a water pump and a transformer station, as well as a medical gas station.

The district military clinical hospital today includes three consultative and diagnostic polyclinics, an infirmary for 30 beds and three branches of the hospital, including those located outside the Russian Federation. Thanks to modern equipment, the hospital management is constantly in touch with both its branches and higher services.

The institution has many years of experience in cooperation with the Rostov State Medical University in conducting cycle classes on military field surgery, military field therapy and hospital therapy on the basis of the hospital with 4-6 year students of the medical university and students of the university’s educational medical center. Close interaction allows us to replenish the staff with young, motivated employees who are always ready to help.

Responsibility for new employees is also passed on from senior colleagues who have dedicated decades of their lives to their department. Since 1968, an X-ray laboratory assistant Lyudmila Nikolaevna Bedrentseva has been working in the hospital. During her 53 years in the department, she has trained many newcomers.

The 1602nd Military Clinical Hospital of the Russian Ministry of Defense was formed according to the mobilization plan of the Rostov-on-Don city health department in the early days of the Great Patriotic War on the basis of hospital No. 4, BSMP-2 and the construction institute as an evacuation hospital for 1.2 thousand beds.

Today, the military clinical hospital is a multidisciplinary specialized medical institution designed to provide qualified and specialized medical care to the wounded and sick, conduct examinations, treatment and rehabilitation. The hospital provides assistance for severe injuries and illnesses that require an integrated approach and the use of complex treatment methods.
