One of the oldest leading medical institutions – the Scientific-Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion is divided into two independent institutions.
The Republican Blood Center leaves the structure of the Research Institute. Officials at the Ministry of Health have commented these changes with the need to optimize and improve the management system. In addition, the Republican Blood Center and other units of the Institute are located far from each other.
The two independent medical institutions keep their names – the Scientific-Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion, and the Republican Blood Center.
The Scientific-Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion now will focus on research activities and improving the delivery of high-tech care for patients with severe diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs.
Soon, the new building for cancer patients will be opened, the construction of which took several years. The unit will have all conditions meeting the highest international standards, where patients will be protected from the harmful environment effects during treatment. The institute will expand the practice of treatment using stem cells.
The Republican Blood Center also has major plans of development. For the last several years this new institution has updated the equipments, and introduced the modern technology of preparation and storage of blood. The center continues to implement the project on construction of a new building in which conditions will be created for industrial harvesting of blood products.
