The Department in the city of Aktau is the largest project within the implementation of the Emergency Pediatric Surgery program of the Foundation, it was counted for 306 million tenge. Equipped with innovative devices and medical apparatus, it is designed to become a center for saving thousands of children's lives. According to tradition, Saby Foundation has created unprecedented conditions for providing effective emergency and rehabilitation assistance to children at the level of the most advanced states. The medical equipment of the latest generation was purchased, including the patient's multiple-parameter monitor, electrocardiograph, ultrasonic imaging system, laryngoscope, lung ventilator as well as special equipment for gas supply and providing sterile conditions in a medical institution. Apart from fully equipage of a high-tech operating unit and comfortable rooms for small patients, the Foundation carried out additional repair and construction work in the hospital in order to increase the speed of medical care. Laptops, outpatient registration system, Smart TV and office furniture were also purchased for doctors.
"The fundamental goal of our project is systematic activities to improve the medical services quality in Regions where only one children's hospital operates, serving the entire city and nearby settlements. The situation is aggravated by the lack of necessary equipment, while an advanced emergency care system, centered on emergency surgery, ensures the safety of patients' lives," said Aselle Tasmagambetova, President of the Saby Charitable Foundation.
