Budapest, June 8 (MTI) – St. Margit Hospital in Budapest has launched an “adopt a ward” scheme, seeking help or financial support for the building’s refurbishment, the daily Népszabadság reported on Wednesday.
The hospital which has 256 active beds and 31 outpatient departments is seeking the refurbishment of its entire intensive care unit, cardiology department and several wards and bathrooms in other departments. The management hopes for input from contractors who would personally do the work or companies that donate money or furniture.
Chief director Szabolcs Badacsonyi told the paper it is hoped that the adoption scheme would enable minor refurbishments. The hospital which regained its independence three years ago is also building a central radiology unit, revamping its operating rooms and making energy efficiency developments, he added.
