As part of this far-reaching modernisation programme, a new Medical and Genetic Centre was opened, which offers a wide range of services for pregnant women.

As part of the extensive modernisation project, the X-ray facilities were modernised and the clinic now boasts a modern X-ray room providing a full range of radiology and mammography services. In addition, the Gynaecology and IVF departments were enlarged and a new IVF Laboratory was opened.
The total project investment was around RUB 200 million, of which RUB 80 million went on purchasing additional premises, RUB 80 million was invested in the maintenance and modernisation of the premises, and RUB 40 million was spent on purchasing new technical equipment. The project took 18 months to complete.
Commenting on the successful execution of this ambitious project, Elena Mladova, Chief Executive Officer of MD Medical Group, said:
“We continue in our unceasing focus on patient care and remain wholly committed to providing new services to a wider number of people.
“By implementing this expansion and modernisation project at the Clinic of Health in Moscow we now offer an even greater number of services for expectant mothers who are cared for by leading doctors in our facilities. In addition to these qualitative improvements, this project has allowed us to achieve quantitative changes: the Gynaecology department saw a 35% increase in capacity, while the IVF department increased capacity by 40%.
“We continue to see demand for private health services significantly outstrip available supply and we believe that our business has sizeable potential for growth going forward both in Moscow and in the region.”
