The Moscow Mayor examined the transfusion center of the Morozov Children’s Hospital and congratulated the doctors on Pediatrician Day.

On the basis of the Morozov Children’s City Clinical Hospital, a new city center for pediatric transfusiology has been created. On the eve of the Day of the pediatrician, he was visited by Sergei Sobyanin. The Moscow Mayor congratulated the hospital staff, and also examined the pediatric building No. 1, which is still undergoing renovation work.

“There are about five thousand doctors throughout Moscow who work in the children’s health care system. This, of course, is the most important area of ​​medicine in Moscow. I would like to express my gratitude on behalf of all Muscovites for your work, your concern for little Muscovites and the professional level that you show, a decent level of work, ”Sergei Sobyanin said.

According to him, Moscow will continue to seriously and systematically deal with children’s health care, bringing it to the international level.

“Today, here, in Morozovskaya, in the main children’s hospital of our city, a new building is opening, which will house a transfusion center. This is the only specialized center for children’s blood in our country, which makes it possible to increase donor blood – its circulation, preparation, almost doubling all the needs of our city and bringing this service to a new quality level, allowing it to introduce new technologies, engage in scientific research “, – said the Mayor of Moscow.

He added that the creation of such a center is another step towards improving the capital’s healthcare, increasing its safety and quality. “At the same time, a number of unique buildings are being built in Moscow: a unique children’s center is being built on the territory of St. Vladimir’s hospital, unique children’s buildings are being built in Kommunarka, dozens of children’s polyclinics and old hospital buildings are being reconstructed, like here in the Morozov hospital. So I am sure that in the coming years, children’s healthcare in Moscow will reach a new quality level, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.

Donated blood and its components are widely used in the treatment of children in cardiac surgery, neurosurgical and intensive care units, for hematological cancer, bone marrow transplantation and in other cases. Blood transfusion can be prescribed for young patients from the first minutes of life. Therefore, the availability and quality of donated blood for children is one of the key elements of health care. Equally important is the availability of qualified specialists in the field of pediatric transfusiology.

To solve these problems, a specialized department of the Morozov Children’s City Clinical Hospital was created – the city center for pediatric transfusiology. The corresponding instruction was given by Sergei Sobyanin.

Thanks to the center, all pediatric and obstetric hospitals in Moscow will be united into a single information and logistics network, which will provide a centralized selection and distribution of blood components for children, including newborns.

Also, on the basis of the center, a specialized children’s advisory transfusion team will be organized, whose specialists will be ready to go to the city’s obstetric and pediatric hospitals at any time.

The city center for pediatric transfusiology is located in a two-story building with an area of ​​2.3 thousand square meters, built in 1902. In building No. 9, a major overhaul was carried out. Work began in December 2019 and ended in November this year.

Sergei Sobyanin expressed his special gratitude to the management of Rosseti Moscow Region PJSC – the historic building was repaired at the expense of the company. “We are always careful about the renovation of such hospital buildings, because they are poorly adapted for modern medicine and require completely different ones in order to make them at a high-quality level,” said the Moscow Mayor.

To equip the center, 127 units of modern medical equipment were purchased. The gold standard for the quality of blood components and products will be provided by a unique laboratory complex, with the help of which specialists will be able to conduct more than 20 types of research.

The equipment allows you to harvest blood components in small (children’s) doses, including for newborns (erythrocyte suspension, washed erythrocytes, fresh frozen plasma and platelet concentrate, which are required in volumes of 50 milliliters). In difficult cases, an individual selection of blood is possible, and for newborns – selection based on the test result of the mother’s serum. The blood components will be stored in a modern freezer (up to 3.5 tons of plasma) and cryogenic storage (in a state of deep cooling).

For the prompt registration of donors, a terminal with an electronic queue was installed; two donor halls for 12 donation chairs were organized in the waiting area. In addition, we equipped the wards for long-term procedures, created a barrier-free environment for patients with limited mobility. The center corridors were decorated with landscape photographs. Their author is Svetlana Gorbatykh, an oncologist at the Morozov Hospital, a prize-winner of many Russian and international photo contests.

The volume of procurement of blood and its components will increase from 5.5 thousand to 12 thousand liters per year. This will meet the needs of children’s hospitals and maternity hospitals in the capital.

In addition to collecting blood and medical work, it is planned to conduct training on the basis of the center for up to 500 specialized specialists per year. It organizes basic training in transfusiology for doctors of clinical specialties and clinical residency.

Repair of building No. 1

The Morozov hospital is also renovating a seven-story building No. 1. Its area is 9.5 thousand square meters. The building was built in 1971.

The renovation work will allow renovating nine departments of the hospital: infectious diagnostic, endoscopic, pediatric somatic, neurological, nephrological, endocrinological, gastroenterological, intensive care and functional diagnostics departments.

After the overhaul, building No. 1 will have 169 pediatric and 11 intensive care beds. Young patients will be accommodated in small wards and will be able to receive all types of care in one building – without the need for transportation to other hospital buildings.

A play space will be made in the building. And also for the first time in the capital’s children’s hospital there will be family rooms – rest rooms for parents who are undergoing treatment with children. Comfortable recreation areas will also be organized for medical personnel.

Now specialists are carrying out facade work, laying engineering communications and ventilation systems. The construction readiness of the facility is 25 percent. The renovation is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022.
