One of the oldest medical institutions in Russia, the Pacific Fleet Naval Clinical Hospital (Pacific Fleet), celebrated its 149th anniversary in Vladivostok.

On the occasion of the holiday, a solemn meeting of the employees of the naval medical institution was held in the hospital club. Military doctors were congratulated by representatives of the fleet management, veteran and public organizations.

At the end of the meeting, the song and dance ensemble of the Pacific Fleet performed in front of the hospital staff.

For reference: The hospital was transferred to Vladivostok in 1872 from Nikolaevsk-on-Amur. The new naval hospital was ordered to provide medical assistance not only to the sailors of the Siberian naval crew, but also to the civilian population of the young port city of Vladivostok.

The participation of hospital personnel in the Russian-Japanese war of 1904-1905, the Khasan events of 1938, the Far Eastern stage of the Great Patriotic War in 1945 became milestones in the history of the development and formation of the hospital. In these difficult times for the country, an underground hospital was built for the first time in the world, an X-ray examination was used for the first time in the Far East, the first neurosurgical operation was performed, mud and hydrotherapy was applied, the production and use of autovaccines, the first pharmacy was created, and the production of mineral water and created the first blood transfusion center.

In the post-war period, the hospital paid much attention to the development of medical and diagnostic departments. For the first time in the Far East, the hospital doctors began to operate on the lungs and mediastinum (V.S. Timofeev), on the esophagus (N.P. Shostya), prostatic gland (I.E. Guberman), kidneys and ureters (Ya.Z. Ginzburg) …

The modern hospital is a highly specialized clinical hospital occupying leading positions in the Primorsky and Kamchatka regions. The hospital is proud of its competent and qualified personnel and the most advanced medical and diagnostic equipment.

More than 4,000 surgical operations are performed at the hospital annually, including those using modern high-tech and minimally invasive techniques. Every year, progressive methods and modern technologies of treatment and diagnostics are being intensively introduced.
