Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin decided to take personal control of the construction of the regional hospital in Kamchatka. He also promised to help with the allocation of funding for the completion of the facility.

According to the press service of the government of Kamchatka, Mishustin visited the hospital during a working trip to the region. According to his prime minister, the previous authorities in the region are to blame for the fact that the facility has not yet been completed in the presence of funds that were allocated from the federal budget.

Now residents of the region are treated in a hospital built in 1956, where the building is worn out by about 70%. According to the doctors working in it, during earthquakes in the institution, shocks are felt, but due to the fact that many patients are not evacuated, it is scary to be in the buildings.

According to Mikhail Mishustin, it was decided to sharpen the new hospital back in 2011. Money was invested in infrastructure, contractors did not have time to hand over anything, opportunities for completion were constantly missed. He called this situation sloppiness. Now, according to government estimates, 13,9 billion rubles are needed to complete the facility.

The head of the Cabinet instructed the leadership of the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Health of Russia to deal with the estimate for construction and add the missing funding. He intends to monitor the construction of the facility on a quarterly basis. According to his estimates, the new building should appear in three to four years. However, the head of the region, Vladimir Solodov, is more optimistic: according to his estimates, it is technically possible to complete construction in 2022.

This week support the construction of the Kamchatka hospital Russian President Vladimir Putin also promised. From the federal center to this facility allocated about four billion rubles.
