The decision to open two hospitals – in Sokolniki and Krylatskoye – was made due to the high dynamics of the incidence of coronavirus in the capital.

The first patients were admitted to the hospital located in the Sokolniki Exhibition and Convention Center. It is assigned to the city clinical hospital named after F.I. Inozemtseva. This is a large multidisciplinary hospital, whose doctors have extensive experience in treating patients with coronavirus.

“Yesterday we opened our temporary hospital in Sokolniki, we didn’t have to wait long for the first patients. Today the first ambulances with the sick arrived. At the moment, all the services of the hospital are functioning, the electronic document circulation is working well, which reduces our time to provide assistance to patients. Patients are accommodated in the most comfortable conditions, ”said the chief physician of the F.I. Inozemtseva Alexander Mitichkin.

The temporary hospital has about 550 beds, including 18 intensive care beds. It also installed modern medical equipment, including five ultrasound machines, 18 ventilators and an AIRO computer tomograph (a mobile machine that allows high-precision diagnostics). To study biological material, a laboratory with a capacity of 3500-4000 samples per day was deployed. The wards have furniture, call buttons for medical personnel, oxygen lines, showers, toilets and washbasins.

“It is very important, I want to draw everyone’s attention: the epidemiological situation is not easy. We see this in our patients. I really want you not to be among them, so we must not forget about self-defense, masks, disinfectants, gloves, and also less to communicate personally. Stay at home, take care of yourself, ”added Alexander Mitichkin.

An observational center has been made in the pavilions next to the hospital. It will accommodate for temporary residence patients who do not need inpatient medical care, who are unable to comply with the self-isolation regime at home. The planned capacity of the observational center is 650 ward-type beds. Each guest will receive a memo with the rules for staying in the center, the daily routine and the schedule of leisure activities.
