To date, 15 subjects have already used some developments of the Bashkortostan builders. A delegation from the Ulyanovsk region is coming to the construction site tomorrow. The infection center project was recognized as the best at the federal level.
For the construction of the infectious disease center in Sterlitamak, 2.19 billion rubles were allocated from Bashkortostan's budget. The center will include an obstetric and gynecological unit, an operating department, a central sterilization department, an admission-diagnostic, bacteriological laboratory, and a pharmacy. The total capacity of the hospital is 60 wards for round-the-clock stay and 14 intensive care wards. The number of beds in normal operation is 120.
