Voronovskoye Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases

A unique infectious complex for the treatment of patients with coronavirus infection was built in the spring of 2020 on the territory of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas in an unprecedentedly short time – in just five weeks. For the first time, a hospital in the Voronovsky settlement received patients on April 20, 2020.

The complex includes about 50 one-story buildings and 14 sections of dormitories for doctors, two to three stories high. The clinical center has equipped an intensive care unit, an infectious diseases unit, an operating room, a diagnostic unit and other departments, and there is also a helipad. Now the complex has 670 beds, but their number can be increased to 800. In addition, if necessary, each bed is transformed into an intensive care unit.

The Voronovskoye Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases has gathered all the technological capacities to fight the coronavirus. Hospital specialists can perform comprehensive diagnostics and treat patients. Thus, the clinical center is equipped with MRI, CT, C-arm devices, stationary and mobile X-ray units, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation devices and equipment for artificial lung ventilation. In total, about 25 thousand units of medical equipment and furniture are provided. In addition, the necessary analyzes are done in our own laboratory with a capacity of up to 300 thousand tests per day.

Patients are accommodated in double Melzer boxes with sanitary rooms, which, if necessary, can be transformed into triple rooms. Intensive care wards are designed for six beds. The boxes are equipped with modern equipment and life support devices (artificial lung ventilation devices, defibrillators, equipment for constant monitoring of patient parameters, and others).

It also has its own oxygen station, which supplies oxygen to the intensive care wards. The air supply system to medical buildings is absolutely hermetically sealed, the air is disinfected at the inlet (and outlet) to each ward. Sewage drains are discharged to autonomous treatment facilities equipped with disinfection systems.

The infectious diseases clinic is the first to implement the principle of the campus system in healthcare. For example, Voronovskoye has made a comfortable hostel for 1.3 thousand people, which allows doctors not to waste time on the way home and back. Now 856 people live in the hostel (799 medical workers and 57 employees of support services).

During the pandemic, more than 25 thousand patients with COVID-19 were treated at the Voronovskoye center. Now there are 302 people in the clinic. Specialists performed 1,490 operations. These are interventions in identifying the pathology of the organs of the chest, mediastinum, abdominal cavity, soft tissues of various localization.

The Voronovskoye Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases is a full-fledged infectious diseases hospital that will continue to operate after the coronavirus pandemic.

How the capital is fighting the pandemic

Doctors in the capital have already cured 1.8 million people from coronavirus. The health care system has proven to be capable of long-term response to the pandemic, while maintaining sufficient emergency and routine care. Moscow doctors help all patients with COVID-19. Depending on the number of patients, additional capacities are quickly deployed and collapsed.

The country’s most developed coronavirus testing network operates in the capital. More than 18.3 million PCR analyzes and about 12 million ELISA tests have already been performed. In addition, since October this year, express testing for the antigen to COVID-19 has been carried out free of charge and without an appointment. In total, 73 testing points have been opened, more than 300 thousand people have passed tests, of which almost 10 thousand have confirmed the coronavirus.

On the basis of polyclinics, a network of outpatient CT centers has been deployed. 915 thousand studies were carried out using computed tomography. A telemedicine center has also been set up, whose doctors have conducted about 1.8 million consultations.

There are enough drugs for coronavirus infection in the city, they are issued free of charge. A large stock of antiviral, antibacterial drugs, as well as drugs for anticoagulant and antipyretic therapy has been formed. This year, Muscovites received more than two million packages of preferential medicines to their homes.

Ambulance is available to everyone without restrictions. Every day more than a thousand brigades go online, and the use of modern information systems makes it possible to arrive at emergency calls in 10-11 minutes.


The reserve of free places in coronavirus hospitals does not fall below 25-30 percent. 12.9 thousand beds are ready to receive patients, more than 40 percent of them are free. Reserve hospitals have taken on the main burden of treating patients with COVID-19, they have treated more than 168 thousand people. This allows other hospitals to provide routine and emergency care.

Moscow was the first in Russia to start using the latest drugs from the group of monoclonal virus-neutralizing antibodies to treat patients at risk of severe COVID-19. More than 1200 people have already completed the course. More than 5.8 million Muscovites have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, and more than 770 thousand people have undergone revaccination.

Despite the pandemic, routine medical care continues to be provided. For example, the volume of treatment for oncological diseases equaled the figures for 2019.

Social and psychological assistance during a pandemic

Social services help Muscovites over 60 and people with chronic diseases. The call center of the social development complex has been operating since March 23, 2020. Operators accept applications for social assistance by phone: +7 495 870-45-09.

During the pandemic, the hotline received 1.85 million calls, and almost 565 thousand applications were filed. About 715 thousand services were rendered, including the purchase and delivery of food, basic necessities, preferential medicines, rehabilitation means, as well as walking dogs and delivering firewood to summer cottages and garden plots. Muscovites are helped by seven thousand social workers, 2.5 thousand social assistants and 1.6 thousand volunteers.

You can also contact the hotline for psychological support. It is provided by employees of the Moscow Psychological Aid Service. In total, more than 58 thousand such calls were received. Emergency psychological aid telephones are also open around the clock: 051 and +7 495 051 (from a mobile). You can also ask for help in the Don’t panic online chat. In addition, free video consultations, webinars and psychological trainings are constantly held. In 2020–2021, more than 135 thousand Muscovites took part in online events.

Specialists of the Moscow Psychological Aid Service work with patients and doctors in hospitals and emergency hospitals, including in the red zone. Almost 44 thousand consultations were provided in medical institutions.

In March 2020, under the auspices of the All-Russian People’s Front, the All-Russian public movement “Volunteers-doctors” and the Association of Volunteer Centers, a mutual assistance campaign #WeVotto was started. In Moscow, it takes place on the basis of the Mosvolonter resource center. More than 23 thousand volunteers have already taken part in the action. They fulfilled over 150 thousand applications for providing targeted assistance to Muscovites who were supposed to stay at home. Volunteers delivered food, medicine and essential goods.

Due to the worsening epidemiological situation, volunteers of the #WeTogether campaign began again on October 22 to help Muscovites over the age of 60 and people with chronic diseases. Applications for the delivery of food and medicine are accepted by calling the hotline: +7 800 200-34-11.
