New Emergency Centre Operating Theatres opened in the CCS as Part of a Grant from Victoria Group

Today, representatives of Victoria Group and the Emergency Centre officially opened the renovated Emergency Department of Urology, at the Clinical Centre of Serbia. This grant from Victoria Group has enabled the construction of two state-of-the-art operating theatres, where liver and kidney transplantations will be performed, as well as an intensive care unit for the post-operative recovery of patients. Complete renovation of these theatres was preceded by another grant from this company, used to purchase two machines, one of them – the Pathfast, is used to determine the biomarkers of sepsis, one of the leading causes of death in the patients in intensive care units.

The Director of the Emergency Centre of the Clinical Centre, Dr Zlatibor Lončar, thanked Victoria Group for the grant; recalled that the work on the operating theatres and intensive care units lasted for six months and said that now the capacity of the Emergency Department of Urology will be much higher, which will allow for a greater number of surgical procedures and a greater number of transplants than previously possible while only one operating theatre was functional. Due to the reconstruction, the intensive care units will be able to provide not only accommodation for more patients after operating procedures, but also treatment in far better, modern conditions, said Dr Lončar.

"Since its incorporation, Victoria Group has been investing in the community and, through donations and grants, has helped more than 1,000 individuals and organisations with a number of actions at national and local level. The grant to the Emergency Centre of the Clinical Centre of Serbia is a continuation of this practice, and our desire actually was to enable them to perform more simultaneous complex operational procedures in Serbia, such as liver and kidney transplantations, and thereby enable them to perform these operations in our institutions, so that patients do not go abroad, to help a larger number of people in a systematic and sustainable manner,'' said Zoran Mitrović, Victoria Group CEO.
