The town of Masis is situated in the province of Ararat. This province is located in the north-east of the country. The province occupies 2,003 km2 (around 7.0%) of the territory of Armenia. There are four urban and 92 rural communities in the province. The total population of the province is 274,700 people, out of which Masis town has 21,800 inhabitants.
The building of the Masis hospital was constructed in 1970s. It is three-storey standard building. The hospital serves the patients from Masis town and surrounding villages. The hospital has never been renovated, due to which the majority of hospital’s premises need major renovation. However, the most acute is the condition of gynecology department.
Within the project the hospital’s gynecology department was refurbished, including the reception, shower cabin and five wards. In particular, the doors and windows were changed to ensure more effective heating of the building. Additionally the electric net was replaced, walls, ceiling and floors in the wards and in the corridor was refurbished. Total area of the premises to renovated was 310 m2.
