These are such projects as the Dmitry Rogachev National Medical Research Center Of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Immunology or Federal State Budget Institution “National Medical Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology named after Academician V.I.Kulakov”. There is the new Federal Child Rehabilitation Center currently under construction. This institution will be of a global level and count 90 thousand square meters. Children with their parents will undergo rehabilitation and remedial treatment there. This year it is expected to finish constructing the Federal Child Rehabilitation Center by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. The institution will be located in Podolsk of the Moscow Region of Russia; and will accommodate 200 beds. Apart from that, there are activities aimed to modernization of a number of federal medical centers within the Federal Targeted Investment Program.

“Modern hospitals shall be competitive. Their design and construction must take best Russia’s and foreign practices into account. The institute of generic design documentation introduced by the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation refers to one of the most important tools to realize the projects related to medical institutions. Together with the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, we are working on selection of the most effective projects realized in the sphere of healthcare. Such projects can become typical ones and help in further implementation and construction of other facilities in different regions of Russia.”

- Said the Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation, Mr. Irek Faizullin.

Usage of typical design documentation favors acceleration and cost-cutting of the processes of design and constructions without sacrificing the quality. At the present time, the generic design documentation register being the part of the single state evaluation register has 144 healthcare facilities. These are 52 midwife centers, 17 general hospitals, 65 day clinics, and 10 specialized medical institutions.
