In Kyiv, the second department of the innovative rehabilitation center for wounded soldiers of the national network RECOVERY has started working. Founded by Victor Pinchuk and Olena Pinchuk, the RECOVERY project will enable the Kyiv center to rehabilitate more than 600 Ukrainian defenders annually.
Since the Kyiv RECOVERY Center was launched at the end of May 2023, 150 Ukrainian soldiers have recovered here thanks to the multidisciplinary rehabilitation team and state-of-the-art equipment. With the opening of the second department, the number of beds in the center has been increased from 30 to 50, which will allow more wounded to recover.
The new ward is equipped up to the highest barrier-free standards: spacious corridors with wide doorways and handrails, sanitary rooms adapted for people in wheelchairs.
Every ward is equipped with multifunctional beds with electric drive and appropriate furniture for a comfortable stay of patients with limited mobility. An additional ceiling track lift has been installed in the corridor to provide simultaneous training to restore walking skills for people with neurological and orthopedic disorders. The second department of the Kyiv center also houses a 24-hour nursing post, a treatment room, a resident’s room, psychological support, speech therapist, and department head offices.
“We realized that this war will last for a long time, and unfortunately, the number of patients will increase, our defenders will need rehabilitation. My wife and I both feel personally responsible to our defenders and understand that we must continue. Unfortunately, there are more heroes in need of rehabilitation than there are beds, more than there are centers. That’s why we have planned a powerful program for the next year, and if we fulfill it 100%, we will help up to 20 thousand military personnel undergo rehabilitation every year,” said Victor Pinchuk, founder of the RECOVERY project.
RECOVERY’s innovative rehabilitation centers for military personnel are already operating in Lviv, Vinnytsia, Kyiv, Odesa (two facilities) and Dnipro region (two facilities). In total, the specialists of the national network have already helped more than 3,500 patients this year. In 2024, the founders announce that the capacity of the national network will be at least doubled.
