The President of the Republic of Srpska Milorad Dodik visited the Hospital in Trebinje today and presented a transport incubator and caring equipment for newborns.

The President of the Republic of Srpska also met with the management of the hospital, and thus discussed the business of this health institution during this year and plans for the next year.

The President of the Republic of Srpska stated that in the coming years, in cooperation with local communities, efforts will be made to bring all health centres to the highest possible level, and in five years, new equipment will be invested in hospitals.

The President of the Republic reminded that in last year’s humanitarian campaign “To Brave Hearts with Love” about BAM 1.1 million was collected from individuals and institutions and emphasized that during the procurement of equipment from these funds, everything was left to the Association of Pediatricians of the Republic of Srpska, who decided what is required.

“I am particularly glad to see the enthusiasm of the medical staff, because all the equipment we procure can be useless if you do not have people who are dedicated to their work and who love the work they do, and the equipment is there to help and make it easier for them”, said the President of Srpska.

The President Dodik stated that the total value of the equipment purchased in this humanitarian campaign amounts to BAM 1.2 million and that it was distributed to maternity hospitals throughout Srpska.

The President of the Republic announced that he will continue with the acquisition of equipment in hospitals because technology is developing rapidly, and indicated that it is necessary to provide quality education for medical personnel.

“These incubators will be part of the equipment for the new hospital in Trebinje, and everything necessary to make it fully equipped will be procured, first of all for the citizens of Trebinje, who deserve a modern hospital”, it was emphasized by the President of Srpska.

The President Dodik thanked the medical staff at the Trebinje Hospital for continuing to work in the old hospital in conditions that had to be better, until the new hospital is completed, the value of which amounts to BAM 128.5 million and is financed directly from the budget funds.

The President of the Republic of Srpska said that the construction of a new hospital in Trebinje and reconstruction of hospitals in Zvornik and Prijedor will complete the renovation of the entire hospital sector in Srpska, after which attention will be directed to other areas in healthcare, such as the use of spa potentials for rehabilitation.
