“We learn together how to properly treat ourselves” – Medpark initiated in 2012 a Summer Medical School, a project addressed to the public through which the doctors from our hospital offered within some open seminars, information on the top 10 most popular medical subjects: birth, in vitro fertilization, emergencies in children, minimally invasive surgical methods, man health etc.
Prenatal courses – Based on the desire to be with each couple and to grant all the necessary support before the baby is born, Medpark launched the Prenatal Educational Center with the motto “Preparing parents for happy babies”. Thus, with a multidisciplinary team formed by gynecologists, neonatologists, nutritionists and physiotherapists, Medpark runs a series of practical medical sessions, which teach parents some newborn care secrets, for the baby, to grow up strong and healthy.
„I am healthy, I grow up nicely!” – a medical education project dedicated to primary school children in order to familiarize them with basic hygiene rules. Medpark’s intention is to provide the little ones with relevant medical information that can help them to be healthy, to grow up nicely.
„Help us protect your heart!” – Medpark initiated in 2014 an information campaign on the risks posed by undetected cardiovascular disease and the importance of periodic checks on time. The actuality of the campaign is conditioned by the increasing number of deaths from cardiovascular disease across the country, including among the younger generation.
“The Cardio Mobile Team in your town”
Due to the low awareness of heart attack symptoms and the low level of addressability to the physician among the population of the Republic of Moldova, the Center for Health Strategies and Policies (CSPS) launched the project “The Cardio Mobile Team in Your Town”. This project is carried out with the professional and technical support of the Medpark International Hospital. The aim is to ensure access for the population in the regions to cardiovascular disease screenings and their early identification.
The cardio mobile team consists of experienced cardiologists of the Heart care Center and nurses. 1901 patients were examined free of charge within the project, of whom 276 were at risk of heart attack. Dozens of patients have already benefited from free investigations and treatment, thus avoiding far more serious consequences.
Olga Schiopu, General Manager of Medpark: ” All the cases when we were able to diagnose on time patients with heart problems that could lead to a myocardial infarction are our biggest reward. It is impressive to see concern and hope on the faces of people waiting to be consulted. After seeing everyone with their illnesses and problems, we understand how much they need to feel that their life is important. I saw discouraged people who at the age of 50 said “I lived enough already.” I saw happy people who found that the older problem no longer exists. I have seen people who have found the hope of doing a further investigation that will give them the chance to live. All this things that we do are from respect for life, with love for people.”
The Medpark Foundation is a non-governmental and non-commercial organization founded by the Medpark International Hospital. The idea of creating the foundation started from the intention of the founders to get more involved in the community, to help people have a better and healthier life. This intention turned into a strong long-term vision. Thus, the vision of the Medpark Foundation is that the citizens of the Republic of Moldova must and can have a quality life. And, the Medpark Foundation will become the entity that, through its projects, but also through joint efforts with partners and citizens, who share the same vision, will always by the side of people. Our mission is to contribute to improving the quality of life of citizens and medical services in the Republic of Moldova, by developing social projects in the healthcare field and promoting innovations in medicine.
“Care for our colleagues” is the first project of the Medpark Foundation. The program provides free medical care for all employees of the national health system who are recovering from COVID-19 infection: doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and all support staff. Because the effects of the new coronavirus are long-lasting, and the infection in moderate and severe forms can leave sequelae on certain organs (lungs, liver, heart, kidneys, etc.), after treating these patients need special attention. In order to assess their health condition, detect possible consequences and treat them in time, the Medpark Foundation will provide them the necessary medical services, fully covering their cost.
