Lukashenko confirms plans to promote interregional medical centers

During his visit to the Molodechno Central District Hospital on 12 March Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko confirmed plans to promote interregional medical centers, BelTA has learned. 

The head of state asked about the arrangement of the health service delivery in the region, including in the context of development of interregional medical centers.

Aleksandr Lukashenko recalled his instruction to build a clear-cut vertical structure of healthcare institutions, from rural hospitals to teaching hospitals, to make cutting-edge medical care available at the grassroots level whenever possible, and to develop interregional centers in large cities like Molodechno.

“Regional hospitals should delegate some of their functions to interregional centers,” the president stressed.
