YEREVAN–Armenia Fund is proud to announce that it has embarked on a new hospital reconstruction plan in the Sisian Region of Armenia. The project is made possible through the financing of Armenia Fund’s French affiliate–Fonds Armenien de France.
Currently in its design stage–the project encompasses the complete reconstruction of the ambulatory care department. The construction is due to be completed by January 2007.
Aside from complete reconstruction–the plan calls for internal and external repairs to the department–as well as renovation of its water main. Built during Soviet times–the hospital’s internal water supply network and infrastructure are badly deteriorated. Thus–hygienic conditions at the hospital fall well below Western health standards.
The Sisian Regional Hospital is the only healthcare facility serving this south-central region of Armenia. Faced with a growing population of 40,000 people–the region’s hospital is in dire need of upgrades. It caters to more than 50 towns and surrounding villages. Currently–the hospital has 90 beds and after reconstruction–Armenia Fund will expand patient capacity as well.
