Visit to cancer centre

January 25, 2024, Kaliningrad Region

At the end of his working trip to the Kaliningrad Region, the President visited the regional cancer centre in the village of Rodniki, Guryevsy District.

Accompanied by Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Northwestern Federal District Alexander Gutsan and Governor of the Kaliningrad Region Anton Alikhanov, Vladimir Putin toured the soon-to-be-opened cancer diagnostics and treatment centre. Explanations were provided by acting Chief Medical Officer Kirill Barinov.

The Centre has five departments, specifically an in-patient care unit with 200 beds, an outpatient clinic with the capacity to handle 300 visits per shift, the departments of radiotherapy, radionuclide diagnostics, medicinal antineoplastic therapy, and thoracic and abdominal cancer, six operating rooms, and intensive care units. Heavy-duty medical equipment has been purchased and installed.

Once opened, the cancer centre will provide local residents with access to cutting-edge medical treatments, eliminating the need for patients to seek advanced care outside the region. According to plans, the centre will have a staff of 700 specialists.
