Providing opportunities to the private sector in healthcare is becoming an important factor in increasing competition and quality in this sphere. There are 720 private medical organizations in Ferghana Region. One of them is «Meridian» medical center in Fergana city.
President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has got acquainted with the conditions created here.
The clinic, commissioned in December 2021, provides modern diagnostic and treatment services. For this purpose, modern equipment from Germany, South Korea, Japan and China has been installed here. The clinic has 120 in-patient beds and is able to conduct two thousand surgical operations annually.
It is notable that a university was established under the medical center last year. Currently, there are 600 students, and foreign teachers are involved. Students have internships at the medical center.
Thus, a private clinic has become a medical cluster, combining modern medical and diagnostic centers, laboratories and a university.
Our President conversed with the doctors.
«Our attention to creating conditions for private healthcare systems has paid off, the population has accepted the idea well. Since our people strive to live well and begin to care more about their health. All our efforts to increase the population's income are aimed precisely at this - to ensure people a healthy and prosperous life», Shavkat Mirziyoyev has emphasized.
The President was briefed on the projects of the clinic to launch the departments of interventional cardiology, cardiac surgery, transplantology and radiology.
