Transneft East, as part of its charitable activities, has allocated almost RUB 1 million to two medical institutions for new medical equipment.
The funds for the Territorial Government-Owned State-Funded Healthcare Institution Boguchansky District Hospital in Krasnoyarsk Territory were used to purchase the following equipment for a physiotherapy room: an ultraviolet irradiator, an apparatus for magnetotherapy and local darsonvalisation, an apparatus for galvanisation, a device for low-frequency physiotherapy.
The equipment will be available for outpatient and inpatient treatment, including care for patients with post-COVID conditions.
“Physiotherapy is in great demand. About 30 people come to us in one shift. Our equipment could not cope with such a flow. Many devices have long ago fallen into disrepair. Therefore, such assistance from Transneft East is important both for hospital employees and for local residents,” noted Olga Kudashkina, a physiotherapy room nurse.
Regional State-Funded Healthcare Institution Bratsk City Hospital No. 2 also received charitable funds. They were used to purchase oxygen concentrators and electronic non-contact thermometers.
"The coronavirus is not backing down. In hospitals, there is still an urgent need for special equipment. The existing concentrators and thermometers are in short supply. That's why support from outside helps us a lot," said Evgenia Kropotina, Chief Physician at Bratsk City Hospital No. 2.
The implementation of Transneft East's large-scale charitable programmes in regions of its operation is aimed at improving the quality of the population’s life and developing healthcare and education. This year, as part of Transneft's corporate charity programme for development of social infrastructure in the Far East, a project worth RUB 30 million is being implemented to repair a surgery unit in the Neryungri Central District Hospital (Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)). Moreover, six schools, located in regions of operation, were renovated. The funding stood at RUB 76 million.
In 2020, 2 healthcare institutions were renovated and improved with advanced equipment in Amur Region and the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Support was provided to medical institutions in all regions of operation for new equipment and personal protective equipment as part of the fight against the spread of coronavirus infection. Almost RUB 70 million were allocated for these purposes in 2021.
