Billionaire opening high-tech medical center in Nizhny Tagil

More than $128 million will be allocated toward a multi-field center for high-technology medical care set to open in Nizhny Tagil in December 2013.

The project's main investor is Vladislav Tetyukhin, who is providing approximately $96 million toward the project, with $25 million allocated from the regional budget. The medical center will be 50 thousand square meters in size, Itar-Tass reports.

"The center will be engaged in the treatment of orthopaedic and spine problems," Tetyukhin said, according to Itar-Tass. "The patients will be able, in particular, to get both conservative treatment and have endoprosthesis replacement and osteosynthesis of the musculoskeletal system with the use of titanium implants. After complicated treatment people here will be able to undergo a rehabilitation course.

"Thanks to the center's work we will be able to have 170 thousand outpatient visits per year and conduct seven thousand high-technology operations. The rehabilitation department of the center will be able to have up to 60 thousand patients' calls per year. The center will employ 560 medical personnel who will live in houses built in the center's territory."

To date 90 percent of the center's medical equipment has been delivered.
