Neonatal ward in Bochnia has a new name!

2021-06-10 15:19:14


We celebrated International Children's Day in Bochnia and officially opened a new neonatal intensive care unit. We did not come empty-handed - the ward, where some of the most vulnerable patients, such as prematurely born babies and newborns struggling with different medical conditions, are being looked after by doctors and nurses. Annually the hospital sees over 1000 births, and some of the babies born in Bochnia require urgent intensive care. In order to provide round-the-clock care on-site, the hospital opened a neonatal intensive care unit in January of this year. 


The hospital in Bochnia, one of Poland's oldest medical facilities, dating its history back to the middle ages, received 71 medical devices from our charity. The overall worth of the equipment totals PLN 1,4 million. We did not come empty-handed this time, donating a hybrid incubator worth PLN 140 000 to the ward. We hope that this state-of-the-art device will be used to provide round-the-clock care for the smallest of patients. 


The ward in Bochnia joins a list of 11 hospital wards and is the 37th location named after our charity.
