"The health of the communities we are part of is also our concern, we have been supporting health projects for quality medical services for over 15 years. We implement educational, social, environmental and health projects in Constanta, both in urban and rural areas" - Zhanibek Nugertayev, GM - Rompetrol Downstream.
The post-surgery unit in the obstetrics section has 9 electrically adjustable beds and was equipped with monitors and medical furniture by the Asociatia Daruieste Aripi, and the section will also have an electrocardiograph, a defibrillator, a syringe and a secretion aspirator. Also, 4 UVC light disinfection devices were installed. More than 5,000 patients are hospitalized in the section annually, with various pathologies, while more than 700 require surgical interventions.
Rompetrol supported the rehabilitation works on an area of over 600 square meters in the emergency reception unit, and the installation of an antibacterial PVC carpet, according to the current standards in the field, which will last in time and provide optimal sanitary conditions.
"We have so far supported 24 sections of the Constanta County Hospital with investments of over 4 million euros. In recent months we have also been involved in the modernization of the Obstetrics-Gynecology Clinic. For the first time in the history of the hospital, this clinic benefits from a modern postoperative section. Thus women from Constanta and neighboring counties receive care in the best conditions. Every year more than 5000 patients with various pathologies are hospitalized here, of which over 700 require surgical interventions and post-surgery care", said Alina Patrahau, founder, and President of the Asociatia Daruieste Aripi.
