None of medical professionals have been laid off or medical institutions closed in the years of restructuring healthcare industry in the Kherson region. On the contrary, local health care expand its range of services, improves its quality and affordability, and thus increases number of hospitals, health centers, doctors, and other medical professionals, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

In particular, it is planned to open 52 modern ambulance stations in the Kherson region on the basis of restructured medical and obstetric centers (MOC) in residential areas with a population of over 1,000 people. 

According to government analysts, experience of modern MOC shows that Ukrainians get sick less and generally feel better where these centers are available and staffed with qualified experts. In these areas, people more often go to see doctors for preventive purposes, they less often call ambulance calls and get hospitalized. 

In Kherson region, 22 centers of primary health care have been already created. They include district hospitals (reorganized as outpatient clinics), outpatient clinics and medical and obstetric stations, experts say. In addition, at present there are 144 outpatient clinics as part of the centers of primary health care in the region.

Government analysts remind that in the frame of the healthcare reform that began in 2011, Ukraine is building a system of emergency medical care as a single national system. In particular, Ukrainians will be able to get a quick and reliable medical care everywhere in the country.
