President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov took part in the opening ceremony of two new hospitals – the Multidisciplinary and Cancer Hospitals, built in the administrative center of the northern region of the country – the city of Dashoguz on Friday. The opening ceremony was attended by vice-premiers, deputies of parliament, regional mayors, heads and representatives of ministries, public organizations, honorary elders and the youth. It was emphasized that ensuring the well-being and health of citizens is one of the primary tasks of the state policy implemented under the motto “A person-centered state”.
A 450-bed multidisciplinary hospital and a 150-bed cancer hospital were built and equipped from the world’s leading manufacturers in order to provide high-quality medical services to the population.
The multidisciplinary hospital consists of departments such as cardio-rheumatology, thoracic endovascular venous surgery, cardiology, traumatology and orthopedics, neurosurgery, ENT department, physiotherapy, dentistry, hemodialysis, maternity ward and an emergency department.
