Uralkali helps a polyclinic for children in Berezniki

01.02.2019

Uralkali under its social development program has donated furniture for the reception area and also provided several information screens to display the schedule of pediatricians and other valuable information to the children’s polyclinic of the Vagner Regional Hospital in Berezniki. Also, special information stands for healthcare brochures and preferential medication supply files will be installed in the polyclinic’s lobby to benefit all visitors.

Uralkali’s careful planning will extend to recreation areas for children equipped with drawing easels to offer families a recreational and perhaps educational way to pass the time in comfort while waiting for their doctors’ appointments.

Irina Konstantinova, Uralkali HR Director, commented:

Uralkali is committed to supporting healthcare in Berezniki and Solikamsk. The new equipment and the children’s recreation areas in the Vagner Hospital will be useful both for the medical personnel and for the little patients and their parents.
