A brand new emergency unit building has been inaugurated this week, at the Universitary Hospital in Bucharest, part of the RON 35 million investment program for building 5 emergency departments in Romania. This is the second emergency department inaugurated, after a modernized unit was opened earlier this year in Constanta. Further modernized and fully equipped emergency departments will be opened this fall in Targu Mures and Satu Mare. Building works will also begin for a new emergency unit at Floreasca Emergency Hospital.
Cseke Attila, minister of Public Health, said that the emergency unit at Universitary Hospital respects European standards regarding medical circuits and equipments. He added that this unit is similar to emergency departments of hospitals from other European capitals. Moreover, the new unit at Universitary Hospital is the largest in Romania and was built in one year.
Public financing from the Health Ministry allowed works for consolidation, post-consolidation, unit extensions by metal structures, as well as installments of specialized equipment, ranging from IT to oxygen production and supply facilities.
