The President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and the First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva got acquainted with the conditions created after the major renovation of maternity hospital No. 2 in the Bakikhanov settlement of the Sabunchu district of Baku.
“Report” reports that the head of state and the first lady were informed about the conditions created in the maternity hospital.
In Azerbaijan, the health of the population is always at the center of state policy. From this point of view, important steps are being taken in the direction of the development of the healthcare system, the strengthening of the material and technical base, personnel potential, and the renewal of the infrastructure. Projects implemented in this field at the initiative of the head of our state serve to reliably protect people’s health. Construction and fundamental reconstruction of treatment-diagnostic centers, hospitals, equipping with modern equipment is a clear confirmation of this.
It should be noted that maternity hospital No. 2 was commissioned in 1987. As a result of long-term exploitation, the need for major repairs has arisen in this medical institution, and by the Decree of the head of state dated April 3, 2019, 2 million manats have been allocated from the President’s reserve fund for the major repairs of maternity hospital No. 2.
It was reported that this 120-bed health care institution, which is undergoing major renovation, is equipped with the most up-to-date medical equipment. There are a total of 51 wards in the three-story building. The hospital has 80-bed maternity, 30-bed gynecology and 10-bed resuscitation departments. Both outpatient and inpatient services will be provided to citizens here. Since 2021, maternity hospital number 2, which was previously under the Ministry of Health, is under the public legal entity “Sabunchu Medical Center”.
Newly built health centers in Azerbaijan, modern medical equipment brought to our country serve one purpose – to fulfill the important mission of protecting the health of the population. The Heydar Aliyev Foundation also has unparalleled services in this process. Protecting the health of the population as a whole, especially mothers and children, is one of the priority directions of the Fund’s activities. The measures implemented at the direct initiative of the President of the Foundation, the First Vice-President of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva are aimed at protecting our gene pool and fundamentally solving the existing problems in this field. The fundamental reconstruction of this maternity hospital is another visible confirmation of the measures implemented by the state in order to protect the health of mothers and children in our country.
