Infectious Disease Hospital in the Vladimir Region Is Planned to Be Commissioned Next Year

The site will soon be cleared of trees

The construction of an infectious diseases hospital on the territory of the Regional Clinical Hospital in Vladimir will begin in the near future. This order was given by the Acting Governor Alexander Avdeev at the operative meeting at the regional administration. He stressed that the facility should be put into operation next year.

The Acting Vice-Governor German Yelyanyushkin said that the UCB had already obtained the permissions for the construction from the supervisory authorities. Now the necessary legal procedures are being carried out and the appropriate documentation is being prepared quickly.

According to the press service of regional administration in the near future the territory under construction of infectious diseases hospital will be cleared of trees – this issue is being worked out together with the mayor’s office of Vladimir. Also in the near future the White House is waiting for proposals for the selection of the contractor for the construction project.

The site for the construction of the infectious diseases hospital last week was chosen by the working group, which included officials, deputies and community leaders. They found the territory of the hospital more attractive than the sites in Energetics and Kameshkovsky district. The last two options were not convenient in terms of their location, in addition, communications would have to be brought there.

As for the site at the OKB, it would have to cut down a number of pine trees growing there. However, the environmentalists who were in the working group reported that it will not cause much damage to the environment. Officials and public activists promised to plant new trees in place of the cut trees.

An infectious diseases hospital is to be built near the Regional Clinical Hospital, based on a project already underway in Kursk. As German Yelyanyushkin explained earlier, the medical facility will have 220 beds with a possibility to increase it to about 500. The construction will cost 3.6 billion rubles.

The hospital will be built on funds from the regional budget, and then must come and federal funding. The Vladimir region has previously secured the support of the Ministry of Health for this purpose.
