MD MEDICAL GROUP OPENS CARDIO DEPARTMENT AND OUT-PATIENT CENTRE IN MOSCOW REGION
23 September 2016, Moscow - MD Medical Group Investments Plc ("MD Medical Group", "MDMG" or the "Company" - LSE:MDMG), a leading Russian private healthcare provider, today opened an interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery department at Lapino hospital as well as a new out-patient medical centre in Odintsovo, in the Moscow Region.
The interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery department will offer emergency (for patients with acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction, heartbeat arrhythmia, etc.) and routine (for patients with chronic cardiac failure, coronary heart disease, etc.) care. It is expected that the department will also carry out high-tech endovascular diagnostics and operative treatments.
The department is equipped with advanced equipment by leading international suppliers. It comprises a therapeutic unit and an operating unit which focus on minimally invasive surgery, as well as an intensive care unit. The department, with a total area of 435 sq m, will be able to complete up to 500 coronary angiography and up to 200 angioplasty procedures per year.
Given the extremely important social impact of medical facilities providing emergency and high-tech care for patients with heart disease, Lapino's management decided to enrol in the complimentary care programme backed by state guarantees for Russian citizens requiring cardiovascular surgery in 2017.
The new out-patient medical centre in Odintsovo with a total area of 140 sq m offers OBGYN, ultrasound screening, urology, otolaryngology, neurology and surgery. The clinic is conveniently located in the town centre. The medical centre effectively serves as a branch of Lapino hospital and is located only 10 km from the hospital - the Group's largest medical facility. It is expected that the new clinic will further contribute to the ramp-up of Lapino. The medical centre will be able to carry out up to 30,000 specialist treatments per year.
Mark Kurtser, CEO of MDMG, said:
"We have now expanded further our presence in the Moscow region with the opening a new high-tech interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery department and a new clinic. This is yet another important and sustainable step forward in our development in the Moscow region, as we consolidate still further our leading position in Russia.
"The new world-class department at Lapino thanks to the hospital's location will be able to provide emergency and routine care to residents of Moscow and the Moscow Region. The department is well-equipped and its team consists of some of the best surgeons in the market, with long-standing experience in successfully carrying out complex surgery procedures.
"The new medical centre located near Lapino in Odintsovo will offer not only our signature services for women, but also additional healthcare services. Patients will also be able to receive additional treatment and a wider range of services in Lapino itself. In this way, we expect that the new clinic will further support the improving performance of Lapino."
