A high-speed multifunctional drill was purchased for the hospital, which allows operations to be performed much faster, increases their safety and reduces the risk of postoperative complications. Also, within the framework of cooperation, the CSTO received the Mayfield Brace - an apparatus with which it is possible to achieve not only a stable and fixed position of the patient's head during the operation, but also to give the maximum necessary position, which directly affects the timing of the operation and the safety of its implementation. It is noted that in this way the CSTO 1 became the only medical facility in the Middle Urals, where there is a Mayfield brace for children.
Director of St. Catherine's Foundation Alexander Andreev noted that this is the foundation's first project in the field of medicine.
“By concluding today's agreement, we have taken a very important step in our joint work with the hospital. A strategic agreement has been concluded and the first equipment has already been delivered, thanks to which, I hope, more than one life will be saved,”Andreev said.
The chief physician of the CSTO 1, Oleg Averyanov, admitted that the hospital hopes for a long and fruitful cooperation with the St. Catherine Foundation.
“We are focused on long-term cooperation with the foundation, which will, of course, be aimed at meeting the needs of our medical institution with modern equipment. This will maximize the availability of medical care for young patients in the Sverdlovsk region,”he said.
According to Averyanov, one of the priority areas of work in the near future will be equipping the surgical unit of the hospital and purchasing furniture for patients.
FederalPress recalls that the Regional Children's Clinical Hospital 1 has the status of a third-level medical facility. It is equipped with modern diagnostic and treatment equipment, which helps about 130,000 children receive consultations every year. The hospital annually performs about 3,500 surgeries, more than 18,000 children and 6,500 women receive inpatient treatment.
In turn, the foundation of St. Catherine was created for the 300th anniversary of Yekaterinburg in order to unite people who are not indifferent to the fate of the city. The tasks of the foundation include supporting significant projects in the field of culture, charity, education and patriotic education.
