During the pandemic, Tyumen-2 will be focused on medical care for patients with infectious diseases, including coronavirus. The hospital will also include an adult department, a paediatric department, radiology, and an obstetrics and gynaecology department. This is the third centre of the Group, which is aimed at combating coronavirus, the first centre has been operating in the Moscow region at the Lapino-4 clinical hospital since the first quarter of 2021, and the second one has been operating at the MD Lakhta clinical hospital in St. Petersburg which opened in January 2022.
Total investments in the project amounted to 1 billion rubles. Around 130 new jobs will be created. Patient treatment will be carried out under the VHI program, as well as MHI.
