The RECOVERY project, as part of the development of a national network of rehabilitation centers for the military, announces the creation of a new rehabilitation center in Dnipro. The memorandum of partnership and cooperation has already been signed at the state level. The center is expected to start operating in early 2024.
A successful public-private partnership aimed at developing the field of innovative rehabilitation in Ukraine is an example of RECOVERY. With the help of cutting-edge equipment, the centers, developed in accordance with international barrier-free standards, can provide effective free assistance to Ukraine’s defenders and protectors. The RECOVERY project was created and is being implemented by Victor and Olena Pinchuk.
The Dnipro region has been an outpost of eastern Ukraine and a medical hub that has been hosting tens of thousands of our national heroes and heroines who were wounded in Russia’s war against Ukraine since the first days of the war. That is why the third state-of-the-art RECOVERY rehabilitation center will be established in one of the key medical institutions of the region. Its launch should strengthen the capacity of the two previously opened centers in the region, where more than 1,000 defenders of Ukraine have already been rehabilitated.
As with all RECOVERY facilities, the new center will be equipped according to international standards. The advanced equipment will cover the entire spectrum of functional disorders of patients, including those sustained as a result of mine-blast injuries, and will help restore gait and lost functions of the upper and lower limbs. The new center is to include physical rehabilitation and hardware physiotherapy rooms, occupational therapists, massage therapists, psychologists, speech and language therapists, etc.
“By opening another center in the Dnipro region, we are contributing to the strengthening of the national RECOVERY network, created to help Ukrainian defenders. Today we have already started preparing design and estimate documentation for the renovation of the premises so that we can start receiving the first patients next year,” said Svitlana Hrytsenko, Head of the nationwide RECOVERY project and member of the Board of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.
As a reminder, the innovative facilities of the national network of rehabilitation centers for the military RECOVERY are currently operating in Lviv, Vinnytsia, Kyiv, Odesa (two centers) and Dnipro region (two centers). In total, the specialists of the national network have already helped more than 3,500 patients this year. By 2024, it is planned to double the capacity of the national network at least twice.
