The 45-year-old German Andreas Pister the other day became the patient of office of a hemodialysis of Omutninsky central district hospital. The man arrived to the Kirov region on a visit to relatives and was strongly surprised and pleased with the fact that in the Russian remote place it is possible to receive the dialysis help at the worthy level – is not worse at all, than in the German clinics.
With the diagnosis "renal failure" Andreas Pister lives 8 years and got used that it needs to pass the vital procedure three times a week. If the man goes to have a rest or in a business trip, then first of all inquires about existence of such service. In Omutninka Andreas stayed with the wife's relatives last time six flyings ago, and then he had to spend a lot of time for trips to Kirov because only there carried out the procedure of a hemodialysis.
– Now everything became much simpler. If I knew that in Omutninsk opened such office, then would visit relatives earlier, – the man shared. – Here everything is made at very good level, and the equipment is not worse, than in Germany. Relation of doctors and personnel excellent. On my homeland there is an opinion that the medicine in Russia falls short of due level, all hospitals old and patients are in awful conditions, but it not so. I took several pictures and I will tell all my friends that here excellent medical aid and qualified specialists. And here it is very clean. At us let relatives in outerwear and street footwear to office, and here – only boot covers and white dressing gowns.
Public service of a hemodialysis was restored in the Kirov region in 2017. Now the head office is located in the Kirov regional hospital, and structural divisions – in Omutninsk, the Vyatka Glades and Sovetsk.

We plan to organize system work in this direction in the nearest future, – Dmitry Kurdyumov emphasized.
