Železiarne Podbrezová already has a long tradition of supporting the Horehronie region (Upper Hron River region) through sponsorship, contributions and donations. Since 2000, this activity has been taken over by the Železiarne Podbrezová Foundation, which mainly focuses on the social sphere, but also education, healthcare, sports and culture. The ŽP foundation is one of the few organizations to be involved in supporting our region. Most recently, the foundation has helped to renovate the hospital in Brezno – specifically the obstetrics – gynecological and neonatal departments.
ŽP Foundation has been helping the Brezno hospital for many years. Its aid is targeted at the equipment modernisation as well as at medical care for hospitalized patients. On a regular basis, the foundation contributes to the purchase of new equipment or the routine maintenance of the hospital. In 2023, it also helped to enhance comfort of babies and their mothers.
Reconstruction of the hospital in the ordinary course of work progresses
Due to the fact that the hospital in Brezno is important and irreplaceable in the Horehronie region the reconstruction of the hospital was in the ordinary course of work progresses. For this reason, the process of reconstruction was divided into several phases that this does not lead to a decrease in the efficiency of health care for the patients.
The examination rooms, ambulances, operating rooms were reconstructed and replenished. This was followed by the reconstruction of the staff room and about-standard rooms for patients.
Today, the hospital can boast of modern medical premises that meet high standards and comfort and privacy for patients who have just given birth to their baby. The hospital places great emphasis on delivering high-quality care to both mother and child and tries to accommodate patients´ needs to have the best possible memories of their special days.
Thanks to this, the hospital in Brezno has been highly praised by mothers in the entire region and also in Slovakia.
The news also at “neonatal wards“
The gynaecology-maternity and neonatal wards can also boast of innovations. The examination room and the new-born box were renovated. The floor and sanitary facilities were replaced, the premises were painted and new tiling was done. Medicine cabinets, medical tables, baby changing tables and containers were purchased.
Among other things, the renovation results in greater convenience not only for the staff, but also quality health care for new-borns and mothers.
