The medical center will be able to receive up to 550 visitors per shift.
A new multifunctional medical center “Medsi” was built in Ramenki. It is located at 56 Michurinsky Prospect, Building 1. It was built at the expense of an investor on the site of the obsolete and subject to demolition buildings of the former departmental medical unit of Glavmosstroy. The center was examined by Valentina Matvienko, Chair of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyaninand Chairman of the Board of Directors of AFK Sistema Vladimir Evtushenkov.
According to Sergei Sobyanin, the new medical center will expand the access of Muscovites to quality treatment. It will provide outpatient and inpatient care for adults and children.
“Large construction of buildings of medical institutions is underway in Moscow. Today, about a million square meters are being built and projected – these are polyclinics, hospitals, ambulance buildings. And of course, it is very important that, in addition to state investments, private investors are also actively involved, providing a new quality, a new level of medical care, offering a variety of medical services, and citizens have the right to choose where to receive these services, ”said the Moscow Mayor.

This can only be welcomed, – said Valentina Matvienko. – The investor goes where conditions are created. Without the participation of Sergei Semenovich, without the participation of the Moscow Government, of course, this would have been impossible to implement. This is all aimed at the interests of citizens, residents of Moscow. “

And the expansion of the network of healthcare institutions, including through private investment, provides such an opportunity. It is important that we support both public health care and private clinics, because they perform the same important task, ”added Valentina Matvienko.

All the necessary equipment was purchased here, including devices for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). More than 800 medical workers have received special training.
Medsi’s specialists have created and worked out protocols for treating patients with COVID-19, including criteria for transferring patients to intensive care and intensive care units, protocols for respiratory support, early and continued post-ovarian rehabilitation, including using the SmartMed telemedicine platform.

We employ over 11 thousand people. And we will definitely justify the trust and provide the best medical care at the highest level for adults and children in Moscow. “
