The opening ceremony of the new established Hemodialysis department in Martuni MC took place on January 29, 2020.
In the scope of the DPCP modernization of the Martuni Medical Center was stipulated, which includes construction of the new building (with 4720 square meters in total) for above mentioned center and provision of the medical equipment, furniture and supplies.
Also, it was anticipated that a new hemodialysis department would be created in the new constructed building of Martuni MC. It is expected that the civil works for construction of the new medical center will be started on April-May 2020.
Taking into account the number of dialysis patients from Martuni (34) and Vardenis (5) regions, the long distance from Martuni to Gavar (about 35 km) or Yerevan (about 125 km), where the patients can receive the appropriate treatment, as well as in order to improve the quality of medical care for the population through provision of hemodialysis services to the patients (25-30) of Martuni and Vardenis regions near their homes, it was decided to establish hemodialysis unit in the existing Martuni MC center.
After completion of construction of the new building for Martuni MC, hemodialysis equipment will be reinstalled in the new constructed center.
