What problem «Leleki» solving?

At the Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology of National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine every month 150 children are born with birth defects, 40 of them get to the neonatal resuscitation, and 15 born prematurely - weighing about 700 grams.

Five children claim to one of the nine places in the resuscitation department every month. Sometimes doctors manage to place 13 patients on 9 infant beds, however, and it does not improve the situation.

«Leleki» solve the problem of lack of places by creating the ward of postintensive therapy which aims not only to relieve the resuscitation department, but also to ensure the rapid rehabilitation of newborns and create a comfortable environment for a mother and her child.
