Healthcare facilities construction in Russia to grow by 2014

Most healthcare facilities in Russia were built in the Soviet era, and the notorious underinvestment since then has caused them to fall into disrepair. As of 2012 approximately 32% of hospitals and 30% of polyclinics require thorough modernisation. Many do not have central heating, running water and hot water, and about 57% of the equipment is obsolete.
At the end of 2011, there were 58,600 healthcare facilities in total in Russia, and one-third of these was located in cities with populations in excess of one million. As demonstrated in the findings of our latest report entitled “Construction of healthcare facilities in Russia and Ukraine 2012 − Development forecasts and planned investments”, in the next five years it is expected that there will be a gradual reduction in the number of medical institutions in cities with populations in excess of one million, as a result of consolidation processes and improvements in clinics.
