Modern heart centre to be built in Abkhazia with Russian investment
The medical center is planned to be launched on the site of the former sports base in the village of Eshera, which was destroyed during the Georgian-Abkhaz war in the early 1990s
A modern cardiocenter will be built in Abkhazia on the territory of the Olympic base in the village of Escher, which was destroyed during the Georgian-Abkhaz war in the early 1990s.
The construction of the medical center is being undertaken by the Federal Biomedical Agency of Russia, the head of the State Committee for State Property Management and Privatization Vakhtang Pipia told reporters.
The complex was allocated eight of the 59 hectares of land of the former sports base, which in Soviet times trained the USSR national teams in two dozen sports – from gymnastics, swimming and basketball to shooting sports.
During the conflict, the Eshera sports base was right on the front line and was completely destroyed.
Numerous attempts by the authorities to find an investor and resuscitate the object were unsuccessful, although the base is located in an attractive place for investment – on the seashore at the entrance to Sukhum.
The main reason is the very large territory: investors agreed to take only part of the territory of the property, but not the whole.
“The center is supposed to include a stroke unit, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a unit for patients with acute coronary syndrome, as well as a powerful surgical unit where neuro-vascular operations can be performed,” said Minister of Health Tamaz Tsakhnakia.
