Credit Agricole Bank donated monitors for patients of the Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Center. Together with the charity fund “Tvoia Opora”, the bank purchased and transferred three complete set monitors needed for medical treatment of patients. These high-quality devices allow monitoring the frequency of cardiac cycle, degree of oxygen in blood, arterial tension, mechanics, frequency of breathing, body temperature and many other important indicators.
«Helping health care institution is a special part of corporate social responsibility strategy of the bank. Last year, the bank began to cooperate with the Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Center. Since then our employees have organized 5 regular Donor Days. We care about the work of the Center and appreciate high professionalism of its doctors and medical staff. Cardiac Center is one of the highly-specialized medical institutions in Ukraine where the most complex congenital heart defects can be corrected irrespective of patient’s age.
Doctors of the Center perform more than 1,500 complex surgeries per year, and invest their energy to save lives. Specialists of the Center also bring innovative foreign practices and technologies thus contributing to the development of health care industry in Ukraine, Jean-Paul Piotrowski, CEO of Credit Agricole Bank comments. Next step of our bank is to facilitate the high mission of life saving and therefore, we invested into three monitors for patients. We hope that this equipment will make doctor’s work more effective and speed up the recovery of patients”.
Purchase of monitors for patients is one more project implemented by the bank together with the Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Center and the charity Fund “Tvoia Opora”.
“We are pleased that Credit Agricole Bank has been supporting the work of our center for more than a year. Monitors for patients are the equipment which has long been required. The devices will help us faster response to changes in patient’s condition and trace vital indicators. Every day our specialists perform free surgeries for patients with congenital and non-heritable heart defects. Money is needed only to pay for blood donation as at least two donors’ blood is required for each surgery. And again, we want to thank Credit Agricole Bank as during our cooperation employees of the bank held 5 Donor Days and donated blood and platelet concentrate, Volodymyr Zhovnir, Chief medical officer of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Center comments.
