Sokolniki Now Hosting Temporary Hospital and Observation Center for Patients with COVID
On October 5, a medical complex began operating, including a hospital and an observation center for patients with coronavirus in the pavilions of the Sokolniki Museum and Educational Centre. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin took part in its opening. According to him, the decision to open a hospital in Sokolniki was made due to the high dynamics of morbidity in the city. The hospital is managed by the city clinical hospital named after F.I. Inozemtseva, which is a large multi-faceted hospital, whose doctors have extensive experience in treating patients with coronavirus.
The hospital is furnished with modern medical equipment, including five ultrasound machines, 18 medical ventilators and a CT scanner (a mobile device that allows high-precision diagnostics). A laboratory with a capacity of 3,500-4,000 thousand samples per day was deployed to study biological material. The wards have furniture, call buttons for medical personnel, oxygen lines, showers, restrooms and washbasins.
An observational center has been arranged in the pavilions next to the hospital. It will accommodate for temporary residence patients who do not need in-patient medical care, and who are unable to comply with the self-isolation regime at home.
The Sokolniki Museum and Educational Centre management is sympathetic to the decision of the Moscow government to re-equip the pavilions and office premises of the Convention and Exhibition Center as a hospital for patients with coronavirus and hopes for positive dynamics and a quick exit from the COVID-19 pandemic, which will allow the Center to continue its exhibition activities.
