- The new ophthalmologic center works "School of view," which is recorded in children with eye problems. With the help of special computer programs, they are treated here, and learn to cope with their disabilities
The UMMC opened a specialized ophthalmological center, which was the implementation of a joint project of Yekaterinburg Centre IRTC "Eye Microsurgery" and Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company.
"Evaluation and Treatment in Verkhnyaya center will be at the expense of the territorial program of state guarantees of compulsory health insurance," — said General Director of IRTC "Eye Microsurgery" Oleg Shilovskikh.
The opening ceremony was the initiator of its creation all called UMMC CEO Andrew Kozitsyna. But he said: "No one — along with Oleg Vladimirovich Shilovskikh" (CEO of the Ekaterinburg Centre IRTC "Eye Microsurgery" — approx.'s Website).
It all started quite simple: Kozitsyn need services of an ophthalmologist. For this, as he put it, came to the center, I saw how it all works, and I thought, "Why not do something similar in his hometown?". And together, did — with the support of the regional government and, in particular, the regional Ministry of Health. As emphasized at the opening ceremony of the vice-governor — the head of administration of the governor of Sverdlovsk region Yakov Silin, there is an example of public-private partnership in the implementation of social projects: "It's nice to deal with people who give the word and keep it."
Remember a few numbers. 500 per day. Thousand a year. The first number — the capacity of the new ophthalmology center the UMMC. The second — the number of transactions that are going to do.
Who and what is put into a small white-and-blue building? "Uralelectromed" provided capitally renovated premises and equipment purchased by spending a total of 40 million rubles. "Microsurgery" prepared doctors and nurses.
Today ophthalmological center opened to patients. No one doubts that his services will be in demand. Enough to see what the reception desk of the 14th hospital in the Ordzhonikidze district of Yekaterinburg in the morning queues just to make an appointment or routine eye surgery clinics in the city. Not to mention the pyshmintsah. As explained O.Shilovskih, maybe someone after consultation at the center will still have to travel to Ekaterinburg, but it will be a very different statistics. Even if the surgery will be done in the "Eye Microsurgery", the rehabilitation of the patient will be "at home".
In the representation of Verkhnyaya children and adults can be diagnosed at a minimum, pick up points: throughput of the new hospital — up to 550 people a day. For local residents and neighbors became available nerefraktsionnaya Laser Surgery: annually can be operated up to a thousand people with complicated myopia, secondary cataracts, various forms of glaucoma and other ocular pathologies.
Finally, one of the most important components. And the reception and treatment of the patients here are free (for residents of the Sverdlovsk Region) — within the framework of the program of state guarantees of territorial compulsory medical insurance. Enough to present a passport and policy.
