Sponsorship for Arad County Hospital
The operating room of the Department of Surgery of Arad County Emergency Clinical Hospital was equipped with the latest operating table and a scialitic lamp as a result of new sponsorship of over EUR 60,000 made by SIF Banat-Crișana.
„SIF Banat-Crișana sponsored by RON 620,000 the healthcare system in Arad in the last five years, The doctors operated on old tables, of decades, produced by the Wagon Plant, using obsolete equipment. The lamps in the operating rooms were also innapropriate, as some of these did not provide the necessary light for surgeries, thus we came up with the idea to equip the operating room also with a scialitic lamp. Now, we have sponsored the aquisition and assembling of the electrohydraulic and radiotransparent operating table STERIS-HIMAX, amounting to EUR 60,758, and the scialitic lamp. In the last years, SIF Banat-Crișana acquired also for the hospital in Arad a sterilized water installation for the urology department, equipment for the cardiology department, modernized the anatomo-pathological lab and also contributed to the improvement of the conditions in the department of pediatrics. Moreover, SIF Banat-Crișana will also purchase 40 work equipments this year for SMURD Arad”.
Ioan Cuzman, Chairman-CEO of SIF Banat-Crișana
The President of the Arad County Council, Nicolae Ioțcu, declared in the press conference organized at the receipt of the operating table, that he hopes that also other private companies will make donations for hospitals.
„I say, somehow regretfully, that SIF Banat-Crișana is one of the few private companies in Arad which supports by sponsorships the Arad County Emergency Clinical Hospital. This healthcare unit was and is suffering as regards the equipment and the interior design and I hope that this donation will be a stimulus for other companies in Arad to come and support the hospital.”
Nicolae Ioțcu, president of the Arad County Council
Teodora Olaru, the manager of the medical unit, hopes that from now on, the hospital having an updated operating room, the patients will no longer have to go to treat their illnesses in other neighboring towns or even abroad, in Hungary.
„The sponsorship made by SIF Banat-Crișana was a must. In the hospital, surgeries are still performed on operating tables made by the Wagon Plant, and the medical equipment is technically obsolete. On this operating table purchased now with the support of SIF Banat-Crișana, X-rays can be also done during the surgery. The table can be connected to a video system, so surgeries could be watched live by students from their classrooms or by other doctors. Also, the surgery can be recorded, and the patient can receive at discharge a film with the surgery undergone.”
Bogdan Totolici, Head of Department of Surgery within the Arad County Emergency Clinical Hospital
SIF Banat-Crișana assumes responsibilities not only towards investors, but also towards the communities in its proximity and towards other groups involved in its activity, supporting financially projects organized locally in the field of healthcare, education and sport. During 2011-2012, the sponsorships made by SIF Banat-Crișana for the Arad healthcare system were significant, amounting to RON 400,000, of which RON 320,000 were used for the endowment and modernization of the Departments of Pediatrics, Emergency, Urology and Surgery within the Arad County Emergency Clinical Hospital.
