The Director Head Surgeon of the County Hospital in Miskolc requested the support of our Foundation for the replacement of the outdated operating table which had been used in the paediatric operating theatre for 40 years.
It is in this Paediatric Surgery Department equipped with the largest number of beds in Hungary where tumour surgery for children living in the North Hungarian region are performed, but their activities also extend to every kind of paediatric surgery. Due to the lack of funding in healthcare and the difficult economic situation of the hospital, they were unable to afford the procurement of the high value operating table.
Our Foundation purchased the multi-functional operating table that represents the latest technology and every position of which may be digitally controlled, and handed it over to the hospital on 15 June, 2015. The accessories of the operating table allow different operations to be performed on any body part in safe and modern conditions.
In order to ensure the highest possible medical care for children suffering from cancer in the region, the Foundation until this day has donated modern medical devices to the hospital in a total value of HUF 222 million.
The Foundation was able to purchase the high value devices from the 1% personal income tax donations.
