Именно такие положительные и своевременные закупки, более масштабных - не было, и делают нашу отрасль медицины более совершенной. Теперь карет скорой будет хватать всем и успевать они будут на все вызовы, даже в отдаленные регионы. МОЗ - молодец!

Я думаю экономия - это показатель прекрасно проделанной работы со стороны МОЗ. Благодаря этому люди получат еще 11 дополнительных машин скорой помощи, а это не мало, если учитывать, что одна скорая рассчитана на 10 тысяч населения. Вот и получается, что еще 110 тысяч людей будут обеспечены новыми современными машинами с мощным медоборудованием, произведенным в Европе.
