Квиташвили про Охматдет: Нам говорили, что там даже фасад некачественно заложен

The Ministry of health said that the construction of the children’s specialized hospital “OKHMATDYT” was held defective. About it in interview “Today” told the ex-Minister of health Alexander Kvitashvili.

“Construction of the Okhmatdet everything was already exhausted. “Ukrbudproekt” engaged jointly with the Ministry of health, helps technically for construction. The quality of construction is questionable. Even up to the facade. We were told that it is necessary to remove and anew to do, at least 60%. So there is poor quality construction. I haven’t seen for a year and a half master plan that is being built there, and what were the terms of reference for medicine. This was done in 2011″, – said Kvitashvili.

He also questioned the appropriateness of the vast area of the building.

“But for me, the biggest question remains 68 thousand square meters – this is how need for 375 beds. So, 180 meters per bed, something like that. This is a huge scale”, – emphasized ex-the Minister.

At the same time, he did not believe that a construction freeze.

“We need to finish at least the block where there is already a linear accelerator”, – said Kvitashvili.

Earlier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groisman stated that the construction of a new building “Okhmatdet” has to be finally completed.

Note, with the adoption of the state budget for 2015, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk after intensive discussions in the session hall promised that 2015 will be allocated 500 million USD for the construction of “Okhmatdet”.

A year later, in December 2015, MP from “Samopomoch”, Deputy Chairman of the Committee on health Irina Sysoenko said that out of 500 million UAH allocated from the state budget-2015 on “OKHMATDYT” was used more than 23 million UAH.
