Increasing the access to quality medical services is a priority for Nuclearelectrica, as part of our value and Empathy and Responsibility strategic direction. In this regard, we are collaborating with the Emergency Clinical Hospital for Children „M.S. Curie” of Bucharest. The project sponsored by SNN aims at expanding the current New-born Intensive Care Department of the hospital, with an investment on our side of RON 1.8 million, following the increases in recent years of cases of new-born with serious problems and the overcrowding of the current department of the hospital.
The largest profile department in Romania, and with the best results in neonatal pathology, has become inadequate in terms of size, receiving requests for hospitalization not only from Bucharest and the South of the country, but also from all over the country. Official statistical analyses show critical data for the department, but also for the situation of patients waiting for treatment: sometimes there are 5-7 patients above the admitted number, in the post-therapy area, doubling the patients in rooms, but there are also long waiting lists – sometimes over 20 new-borns.
From the hospital’s official statistical data, the conclusion drawn is that the activity from 2014, the first year of existence of the department in the new location, is coming close to be doubled. Romania needs approximately 400-450 beds for neonatal intensive care, of which it currently provides around 250-300.
