Opening of the Intensive Care and Anaesthesia Ward at the Miedziowe Centrum Zdrowia
Thursday, 04 March, 2021
Despite the pandemic, Miedziowe Centrum Zdrowia in Lubin is not slowing down the pace of planned investments - KGHM is opening a modern, enlarged Intensive Care and Anaesthesiology Ward. The unit has been relocated to the centre of the hospital, significantly reducing transport times for life-threatening patients and increasing their safety.
The Intensive Care Ward was equipped with modern equipment, including ventilators, cardiac monitors and echocardiographs. The purchase of the medical equipment was possible thanks to the KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Foundation and EU funds from the Regional Operational Programme.
"Health safety of the Copper Belt population is very important. Especially at a time when we are struggling with a pandemic. KGHM is committed to the fight against coronavirus, but is not focused solely on this. This investment is evidence of that. The MCZ Hospital is trusted by the population. And now it confirms that it is an institution which guarantees provision of medical services at the highest level," said Marcin Chludziński, President of the Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.
President of MCZ ,Piotr Milczanowski, added that the scope of works carried out included, among others, reconstruction of rooms and the majority of installations, as well as renovation of central heating and cooling in the Ward. "We are handing over a safe and functional unit to the patients. The investment is a continuation of modernisation of the hospital, which began several years ago," said Piotr Milczanowski.
MCZ in Lubin has recently modernised operating theatres and replaced medical equipment, including a CT scanner and radiology equipment. There is also a new Magnetic Resonance Laboratory for patients. Two modern endoscopy towers were purchased. This year, the facility will begin renovations to the Cardiac Rehabilitation Ward, followed by the Gastroenterology Ward.
The hospital has also had a more than 50-bed covid ward in operation since November last year. Despite this, the facility has not reduced oncology hospitalisations or diagnostic tests.
