A powerful impact for improving medical care for the population and introducing modern medical and diagnostic technologies into practice was given by the state programs for the development of healthcare - the Healthcare Modernization Program 2012-2013, the federal targeted program for assistance to victims of road accidents on federal routes, the infrastructure development program health of the Volgograd region 2015-2017. Thanks to government support, in 2012-2013, specialized units of the hospital for in-patients in cardiology department, cardiorehabilitation unit, neurological departments and intensive care unit were restored and equipped with medical equipment to help patients with acute cerebrovascular accident. This allowed the organization of a regional cardiovascular center in the hospital to assist patients with acute myocardial infarction, as well as to help patients with acute cerebrovascular accident.

The implementation of the federal target program of assistance to victims in the accident made it possible to organize a department of anti-shock measures in the hospital with an operating room in the immediate vicinity of the admission department, to purchase and install a 64-slice computer tomograph. And in a functional connection with traumatological, neurosurgical and resuscitation departments it made real to organize traumatological center of the 1st level. This allowed the implemented measures to significantly reduce the waiting time for assistance to victims from the moment they entered the hospital, and to provide surgical assistance as quickly as possible, which together had a positive effect on the results of treatment - to reduce lethality in this group of patients.

The ongoing activities under the Volgograd District Healthcare Infrastructure Development Program 2015-2017 represent a major modernization of the hospital, unprecedented in scope and scope of funding:

  • Construction of an emergency medical care department for 150-200 calls a day with a powerful diagnostic service - a clinical diagnostic laboratory, an endoscopy room, a department for radiation diagnostics (X-ray room, CT, ultrasound), a functional diagnostics room, an anti-shock surgery room, an intensive care unit for 6 beds, a hall for hyperbaric oxygenation with two devices, doctors' reception rooms for specialists;
  • Construction of the helipad;
  • Thorough overhaul of all spesialized departments of the hospital previously not included in the modernization program of 2012-2013;
  • Equipping the hospital with medical diagnostic equipment, which allows to conduct diagnostic studies and interventions at the most modern level, to expand the range of high-tech types of medical care;

  • Thorough overhaul of the facade of the medical building and the operating unit, which will give the institution an irresistible aesthetics and beauty;
