To implementation of the instructions of the President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, the Deputy Prime Minister Berdibek Saparbayev visited a number of sports and medical facilities in Nur-Sultan.
The vice premier’s work tour began with a visit to the city’s oldest medical facility, the central railway hospital, the buildings of which were built 60 years ago and were very dilapidated. During this time, the hospital has never been overhauled. At the same time, the medical facility serves one of the most densely populated areas of the capital — Saryarka district.
Akimat and the Ministry of Health are planning to solve this problem by building a new medical complex with 600 beds. A plot of future construction has been identified. To implement a public-private partnership project, it is planned to attract an investor from Turkey.

In the oncology center over the previous years, a debt to IC Pharmacia in the amount of 1.3 billion tenge was formed. A special commission has been set up to resolve this situation.
The deputy prime minister instructed the responsible government agencies to provide the full medical center with the necessary drugs for the treatment of patients.
