A multi-story surgical building will be erected on the territory of the 11th city clinical hospital. Funds from the city budget have already been assigned for design work, as Dzmitry Charadnichenka, the first deputy chairman of the Health Committee of the Minsk City Executive Committee, told the «Minsk-News» agency.
“We understand that it is extremely important for the capital to expand the bed capacity. Therefore, it is also planned to modernize the building where patients are being rehabilitated,” D. Charadnichenka noted.
The 11th clinic is multidisciplinary. Despite the presence of the serial number, it is still called the railway, since for many years it was departmental (only railway workers were treated here). The clinic is better known as rehabilitation clinic. A comprehensive recovery program is developed for each person. Relatives of patients are also taught special methods.
Highly qualified surgical care is also provided here. The clinic has near ten operating rooms, annually about 10 thousand surgeries are performed. Among them there are maxillofacial, ophthalmic (eye microsurgery). Rather than anywhere else, in the eleventh clinic for the first time in Belarus a center for outpatient and minimally invasive surgery, the so-called one-day surgery, was opened. The specialists of the center for the shortest possible term carry out surgical treatment of varicose disease of the lower extremities, external hernias of different localizations, gallstone disease.
There are departments of emergency surgery of the Belarusian Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education on the basis of the hospital. The clinic is famous for its achievements in maxillofacial surgery. A specialized department of the Belarusian State Medical University was organized on its basis. Here unique dental implants and reconstructive operations on the bones of the facial skeleton are performed.
The personnel potential of the 11th clinic is 29 % of doctors of the highest qualification category and 33 % of the first. In terms of the quality of medical care to residents of the capital, the hospital has been one of the top three healthcare institutions among adult clinics over the past few years.
