MD Medical Group Investments Plc (“MD Medical Group”, “MDMG” or the “Company” – LSE: MDMG), a leading Russian private healthcare provider, today announces the expansion and modernisation of its out-patient clinic in St. Petersburg in response to growing demand for the clinic’s medical services. This second phase development at the Mother & Child St. Petersburg clinic delivered a 351 square metre increase in total floor-space occupied, bringing it to 893 square metres.
Existing premises doubled their IVF department capacity to 2,000 cycles per year. The gynaecology department also doubled its capacity – thanks to the acquisition of new space. In addition, the new space made it possible to increase the number of beds in the physiotherapy department, as well as to open a new operating theatre, four doctor’s consulting rooms and a 2-bed day unit. New medical equipment produced by GE and Karl Storz was also purchased.
The range of clinical procedures available has also significantly expanded in range and volume, in particular in terms of a number of gynaecological operations, and appointments can now be made with new specialists such as cardiologists, phlebologists, endocrinologists and haematologists.
MD Medical Group has invested RUB 62 million in this project.
Mark Kurtser, CEO of MD Medical Group, said:
“I am glad to announce that we have taken one of our very first clinics, in St. Petersburg, to new heights. Investment in this clinic makes it possible to increase the volume of services provided in our primary area of expertise – women’s health – and to offer new services for the entire family.“This scale of modernisation reflects the considerable progress that the Group has made since the clinic opened in 2011. We have become the undisputed leader in assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in Russia, and continue to expand our IVF capacity, including in Russia’s second largest city. In recent years, we have gained experience in providing a host of new services for all members of the family, and today are expanding the medical treatments we offer in St. Petersburg.“Our new operating theatre makes it possible to increase the number of operations carried out, while the addition of new, experienced, specialists and high-tech equipment means we can also extend the range of operations provided.”
