Governor of Ugra Natalya Komarova invites residents of the region to the new perinatal center in Surgut

The leadership of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District - Ugra, headed by Governor Natalya Komarova, assessed the readiness of the Surgut Regional Clinical Center for Maternal and Children's Health to receive its first patients. The event was held in a public reception format, adopted in the region for socially significant facilities. It entailed the participation of public activists in a tour of the main functional blocks of the medical complex with an area of 78,000 sq. m. CEO of OOO VIS Infrastructure Sergey Parsadanyan and Chief Physician Larisa Belotserkovtseva showed the guests the fundamentally new conditions for mothers and newborns and high-tech medical care facilities.

The center is being built using non-budgetary investments on the principles of public-private partnership. In 2014, VIS Group won an open tender held by the Health Department of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District - Ugra for the right to conclude an Agreement on public-private partnership for the design, construction, equipment and technical operation of the clinical perinatal center in Surgut. The private partner in the project is OOO VIS Infrastructure (part of the VIS Group).

The public commissioning route includes operating rooms, an ICU for newborns, a diagnostic department with cutting-edge hardware complexes for MRI, CT, radiography and mammography, and several types of wards. All of these facilities are fully ready to receive patients.

“We passed the first audit of the state architectural and construction supervision, received insignificant comments, and are now working on the required alterations. By May 10, we will complete this work and invite the state commission for a second check. We hope to receive a commissioning permit in May. This will mean the completion of one stage and the beginning of the next one that is just as important – it is the stage at which doctors will start to come in. They will need to learn to use this ultra-modern equipment,” commented Sergei Parsadanyan.

The project in Surgut is one of the few examples of perinatal centers created according to an individual project, which takes into account the actual wishes of the prospective medical staff. The staff of the Surgut Perinatal Center was directly involved in the elaboration of medical and technical specifications. The changes made to the project after the conclusion of the PPP agreement allowed to raise the initial status of the perinatal center to that of a district clinical center, increase its usable area, equip it with high-tech equipment and significantly expand the medical care options.

“Major tasks will be tackled here, and not only in treatment of pregnant women and newborns, but also those related to the early diagnosis of cancer. This is very important. These are targeted screenings. This is something new for our region, for Surgut. As of today, there is no other institution of this level within a large area,” said the Chief Physician of the Surgut Perinatal Center Larisa Belotserkovtseva.

Under the PPP agreement, the investor ensures the design, construction, equipping and improvement of the territory of the future center using his own and borrowed funds, and also bears the obligations and costs for the technical operation of the complex until 2024. Budgetary payments to the investor (capital grant, reimbursement of creation and maintenance costs) are distributed over the entire duration of the agreement. Thanks to the public-private partnership mechanism, the implementation of this large-scale investment project will not create a serious one-time burden on the regional budget.

“Children and their parents will be provided with highly qualified medical care using modern equipment and technologies. The promising areas will include neonatal surgery and endoscopy, surgical treatment and laser coagulation, perinatal pathomorphology, newborn rehabilitation, immunoserology,” wrote the Governor of Ugra Natalya Komarova in her Instagram account following the visit.
The Center for Maternal and Children's Health is designed for 165 visits per day, 10,000 births per year and will be able to simultaneously receive 315 women in labor not only from all of Ugra, but also from neighboring regions. The project provides for 1500 functional rooms. Unlike a conventional maternity hospital, the doctors here will be able to diagnose and treat complicated diseases in mothers and babies. 6,000 units of modern equipment from leading manufacturers with a total value of about 5 billion rubles will contribute to the high quality of medical care provided at the center. Over 2,000 specialists will work at the new health care facility.
