The foundation stone was laid in April 2015 in the Wola Hospital. After almost two years, this three-storey cardiology ward with 66 beds is open for patients. Its erection was possible due to a PLN 25 million funding from the City.
“The Wola Hospital has been undergoing transformation since 2007, successively receiving financial support from the City. Including last year’s funding, it is PLN 74.2 million,” said Włodzimierz Paszyński, Deputy Mayor of Warsaw, at the opening ceremony, “And funds for its further development are allocated in the Multiannual Financial Forecast.”
“The new cardiology ward will have 21 beds more than the old ward, which operated until December last year in a 100-year-old hospital building,” stressed Robert Mazur, Head of the hospital, “We need this state-of-the-art extension very much, because the services provided by the Wola Hospital cover an area with 300,000 residents.”
The ward houses an intervention-cardiology laboratory, a cardiology outpatient clinic and an endoscopy diagnostic laboratory. It has been equipped with, among other things, patient monitors, gastroscopy devices, colonoscopy devices, ECG devices, anaesthesia equipment, operation tables, patients’ beds, furniture, computer equipment and maintenance facilities. Moreover, the building has been equipped with two angiographs (a new one, purchased in 2016 for PLN 2.6 million and the other one taken from building 5).
