The construction of a regional hospital in the Kamchatka Territory will be resumed this year. In total, according to Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, another 5,1 billion rubles need to be found to complete the project.

According to the press service of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory, the construction was supposed to be completed in 2019, now 500 million rubles will be allocated from the regional budget to resume work at the facility. A tender for a new contractor will be announced shortly.

As Acting Governor Vladimir Solodov noted, with the appearance of a new hospital in the region, the situation in healthcare, which is now in a very neglected state, should improve. Some hospitals were last renovated in the 60s. The regional authorities will seek additional 5,1 billion rubles for the completion of the facility together with the federal center. At the same time, Yuri Trutnev did not rule out an appeal to the president, if necessary.

Back in 2014, the authorities of Kamchatka tried to include the regional hospital in the federal program Ministry of Health. Then, from 2016, they tried to include the object in the program “Economic and Social Development of the Far East and Transbaikalia”. Then the authorities signed an agreement with Korean investorsbut at the first stage the construction went on its own funds.

The total value of the object was estimated at 13 billion rubles, more than four billion rubles allocated by the federal center. However, after the object was not started to be completed at the beginning of this year, no concession agreement was signed with the investor, the regional hospital lost 1,4 billion federal funding.
