Armenia Fund USA is building a hospital in MartuniArmenia Fund USA is building a hospital in Martuni, Artsakh, with co-financing from the Armenian Medial Fund USA (New York) and the government of Artsakh.
With Martuni’s existing hospital, built in 1965, having fallen into disrepair and no longer capable of offering adequate healthcare, the construction of a new hospital had become a critical necessity in recent years.
The future hospital, consisting of a two-story structure with a total area of 2,470 square meters, will be a state-of-the art facility, fully equipped to provide a broad range of modern health services.
The basement of the new hospital will house various storage and service rooms; the first floor will comprise a reception hall, an emergency room, an intensive-care unit, and polyclinic, diagnostic, infectious disease, and administrative departments; and the second floor will include departments of surgery, therapy, and gynecology. The hospital’s electric substation, heating and air-conditioning systems will allow to run the hospital more efficiently. The hospital complex will also feature a sizeable courtyard for the patients’ recreation.
With the basement and the first floor already built, currently crews are constructing the second floor. Dr. Grisha Gasparyan, the hospital’s executive director, said that the facility will be able to serve close to 1,000 stationery and 1,400 ambulatory patients yearly, and up to 23 inpatients a day. Dr. Gasparyan added that the hospital will admit patients from nearby villages as well.
“The new Martuni Hospital is the second medical facility to be built in Artsakh through the efforts of the Armenian community of the Eastern United States,” said Ara Vardanyan, executive director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. “The first such facility was the Stepanakert Polyclinic, which, ever since its construction nine years ago, has played an invaluable role in the health maintenance of the local population. We are extremely gratified that the future Martuni Hospital will in turn benefit the communities of Martuni and surrounding areas.”
In addition to supporting such far-reaching projects as the Martuni Hospital, the Armenia Fund USA has spearheaded the HyeBridge Telehealth program, in partnership with the Yerevan State Medical University. A telemedicine initiative, HyeBridge uses Internet-based videoconferencing and a dedicated website to deliver improved healthcare to a number of medical facilities in underserved communities throughout Armenia and Artsakh.
Martuni is the site of several major development projects financed by the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. Currently the city’s water-distribution network is being reconstructed, with funds raised through Telethon 2010. The project’s first phase has already been completed, and currently construction bids are being accepted for the second and third phases.
