The first phase of the reconstructed complex of the Okhmatdyt Children's Clinical Hospital received a certificate of readiness of the facility, thus it will be prepared to receive patients next year. This was announced by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman. The Head of Government inspected the facilities of the renovated hospital complex, in particular the Division of Hematology and Cancer, equipped with purpose-built equipment.

The Prime Minister stressed that a year ago the complex was an emergency building with degraded communications infrastructure and rooftops.

"Even necessary documentation was lacking," Volodymyr Groysman reminded. "Over the year we have restored everything, the construction is being finalized and doctors are to obtain this facility, hence, their job is to prepare it for providing high quality aid."

The Head of Government informed that construction of the second stage of the hospital will commence in 2018.

"We have accumulated sufficient funding. If used efficiently the activities would be completed timely. I think that in 16-18 months we will finalize the planned construction work," stressed Volodymyr Groysman.

He thanked the Government team, the team of the Ministry of Health and all those who engaged in the construction of the Okhmatdyt.

"I must tell thank you and good luck," added Volodymyr Groysman.
