The hospital impresses with its size, capabilities, quality of patient care, comfort not only for the medical staff, but also for the patients' relatives. Each department is individually designed. This is remarkable that for patients created the most comfortable conditions, in each department there are rest areas for patients, kitchens and dining rooms.
