On 5 September 2018, the Russia’s first fully foreign clinic - a branch of the famous Jerusalem Hadassah Medical Center opens at the International Medical Cluster (IMC) on the territory of the Skolkovo Innovation Center.
Hadassah Medical Skolkovo is a pioneer of the International Medical Cluster, a unique project of the Government of Moscow, whose implementation will ensure the transfer and introduction of the best international practices and the main trends in the development of medicine in the country’s health care system.
Kirill Kaem, Senior Vice President for Innovation, Skolkovo Foundation: “Scientific and educational components of IMC activities are particularly relevant for the Skolkovo Foundation. It is crucial to provide medical care to patients with the use of the state-of-the-art technologies thus applying the achievements of translational medicine and introducing medical developments into practice, which were at the stage of scientific research the day before yesterday. IMC should be the place of transfer of the best international medical competencies to Russian doctors.”
Due to the special legislative conditions provided to the Cluster Participant, Hadassah Medical Skolkovo will host more than 100 foreign and Russian specialists. 80,000 patients annually will be able to undergo a full medical diagnosis and receive medical care using the cutting edge medical techniques and the most effective medications of the latest generation successfully tested in the Member States of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), but not yet available in Russia.
Full Professor Zeev Rothstein, General Manager, Hadassah Medical Organization: “Opening of Hadassah Medical Skolkovo symbolizes the Moscow’s giant step in the direction of ensuring health and well-being by providing Muscovites with the technology of the future in the field of early medical diagnosis and examination. Skolkovo, whose mission is to create an enabling environment for scientific and technological progress, is an ideal place to build up partnership relations and to open Hadassah Medical Skolkovo based on the Hadassah skills and innovations.”
In addition to the practical exchange of experience between foreign and Russian specialists, every Russian doctor at Hadassah Medical Skolkovo will undergo a long-term (from one month to two years) and step-by-step training at the main clinic in Jerusalem.
Michael Yugay, CEO of the International Medical Cluster Foundation: “The opening of the first clinic is an important step in realizing our global objective. We believe that the International Medical Cluster will provide all the incentives to transform and effectively develop Russian medicine by bringing together the leading clinics from around the world. We must bring the best foreign medical practices and technologies to Russia and also attract investment in the medical field.”
On 5 September, the first outpatient building of the clinic will be opened for patients thus providing them with an opportunity not only to undergo a comprehensive medical diagnosis of the state of health, but also to receive the necessary medical care for various diseases, including complex medical cases and oncology.
The next stage is the construction of a multifunctional hospital for 134 beds equipped with the latest medical technology and a full-time Department of Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy. It is planned to be completed by the end of 2020.
