General Hospital information

Our greatest joy is that our work is well worth the effort! Our medical staff members help you, dear ladies, young mothers and your children to stay in the best of health.

Our achievements are certainly something to be proud of!

On July 13th the Ministry of Public Health in Ukraine awarded us the title of “The kind Children’s Hospital”. At the initiative of the World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund this honorary title is awarded to hospitals where a woman has an opportunity to breastfeed her newborn miracle right away after delivery, and comfort and warm up her baby with the warmth of her own body, as well as to keep the baby by her side.

Thanks to our mutual efforts, the women of Berdyansk enjoy the great opportunity to give birth in individual wards. Additionally, young mothers enjoy breastfeeding their babies as well as keeping them by their side. A young mom can breastfeed her baby anywhere she wants. Nowadays more than 60% of young mothers breastfeed their babies for more than 6 months, which means that infants have a greater chance to be physically and spiritually healthy!

Our hospital always introduces new technologies of preventive measures and methods of treatment for various illnesses of women and children. The hospital also offers new alternative, and non-drug cure methods.

Thanks to the support of the Regional administration and local government as well as our donors the intensive care unit of our hospital has got new medical equipment, diagnostic complex and medicine.

We are deeply grateful to everyone who helps us solve our problems and make their charity donations. Without your everyday support we cannot achieve much.

The hospital is situated in three separate buildings: The child health center, the children’s in-patient department and the maternity home.

The fundamental goals and objectives of our hospital:

- Providing the Berdyansk residents (women and children under 18 years old) with the medicoprophylactic help as well as medical services according to the demands of the appropriate regulatory, legislative standards aimed at preserving and improving health;

- Providing the women and children of Berdyansk with medical services by means of qualified emergency, routine, ambulatory, surgical, diagnostic, pediatric and therapeutic help.
