The clinic is equipped at a state-of-the-art level. In particular, local doctors have 64-slice computer tomograph. Besides, they can consult to experts of the similar centre in Ufa, sending pictures and results of research through the Internet. As a part of the centre neurologic, cardiological, and neurosurgery and interventional radiology departments operate. Doctors from Sterlitamak, Salavat and Ishimbaisky region work here. The vascular centre serves inhabitants of Sterlitamak, Kumertau, Ishimbay, Salavat, Meleuz and 10 more regions of the republic.

Rustem Khamitov has met with doctors of the centre and talked about their problems.

Rustem Khamitov has charged the head of Sterlitamak administration to get down to the question of providing young experts with housing.
