Military Teaching Hospital - the biggest in the region
Twenty-one departments, five hundred beds, two hospital buildings and two operating rooms– from now on, the biggest clinical hospital in Lodz is in operation.
Why did the authorities of the Medical University of Lodz decide to join the hospitals? The actuation of medical action and the financial matters were important factors, but the main beneficiary of the merger are to be the patients: the hospital will be able to admit more people than before. A dermatology department has been incorporated into the hospital and the rehabilitation ward has received 40 new beds for patients with orthopaedic injuries. No present clinic will be liquidated and new ones are intended to be built.
The new hospital, which is now named Military Teaching Hospital, Veterans Central Hospital, is one of the largest teaching hospitals in Poland and the largest in Lodz. Currently it has 21 departments, where 320 medical doctors and 460 nurses work. In total, 1400 people are employed. The hospital runs several unique specializations, such as an arm surgery department and an orthopaedic department, where sportsmen and Olympians from all over the country can recover after serious injuries.
