In 2020, cardiovascular centres are planned to be reequipped in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, as well as in Lyskovskaya, Gorodetskaya and Urenskaya central district hospitals. This work is carried out as part of the national project “Healthcare”.
According to the Governor of Nizhny Novgorod, Gleb Nikitin, primary cardiovascular centres play a key role in the healthcare system. In the Nizhny Novgorod region, a set of measures is already being taken to create a system for helping patients with chronic heart failure.
In particular, this year, on the basis of Specialized Cardiac Surgical Clinical Hospital an expert centre of the III level may be opened; there are now 20 people on the waiting list for operations. It is also planned to open three inter-district cardiology rooms to help patients with heart failure.
