Employees and journalists were invited to visit in the morning of 29th July.
During the tour of the facilities, Rector Ilshat Gafurov none of the Clinic’s ward or departments are being closed even for one day because of renovations. The full completion of the works is expected to predate the University’s 215th anniversary (due 17th November).
Much attention is given to technological innovations. Chief Medical Officer of the University Clinic Sergey Osipov shared, “We task ourselves with developing noninvasive treatment to reduce adhesion processes and iatrogenic infections; we have chosen to move to organ-saving medicine.” He added that the Clinic has seen a huge influx of CVs from interested professionals who witness the quick development of treatment technologies here.
Additional complications arise from the fact that the building on Yershov Street is a historical heritage object. In particular, the renovators have preserved the famous cast iron stairs at the central entrance and, of course, the exterior decorations.
Speaking about the new hospital rooms, the management noted that every bed is now equipped with a personal display – treatment information is available to patients 24/7, as well as broadcast TV. Needless to say, the rooms were also completely overhauled, with up-to-date adjustable beds, individual emergency help stations, and comfortable bathrooms.
Autumn 2019 will see the launch of another clinical project at a separate location. A building on 18 Volkov Street was allocated for the Precision and Regenerative Medicine Center. The Center will have its own small inpatient facility with 25 beds. It will concentrate on experimental treatments and research in surgery, traumatology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, genomics, proteomics, and neurological rehabilitation.
According to Vice-Rector for Biomedicine Andrey Kiyasov, Kazan University plans to expand the number of residency programs from 31 to 53 specializations, covering the majority of the existing medical domains.
Among the Precision Medicine Center’s partners are RIKEN, Weill Cornell Medicine, and the University of Nottingham.
