Rompetrol Group finalised the modernization of the Psychiatry Hospital in Sibiu

The Rompetrol Group, through his social responsibility program – “Together for each and everyone”, sustained the rehabilitation of the paediatric neurology and neuropshychomotric recovery section of the “Dr. Gh. Preda” Psychiatry Hospital in Sibiu. The total value of the funds allocated is RON 50.000.

“The continuation of the program Together for each and everyone in 2010 and the involvement of the Rompetrol Group in the modernization of the “Dr. Gh. Preda” Psychiatry Hospital in Sibiu show our long-term commitment to the development and support of some essential fields in the society evolution: health and environment protection. The CSR programs of The Rompetrol Group follow the strategy of its main shareholder – KazMunayGas”, declares Gavit Kurkimov, VP of Business Development Division, The Rompetrol Group.

The pavilion of the “Dr. Gh. Preda” Psychiatry Hospital, in which the paediatric neurology and neuropshychometric recovery sections operate, was opened in 1985 and did not benefit previously from any donations for repair works. The project spanned between August 1st and September 25th, 2010 and aimed at the rehabilitation of the two sections facing a high degree of deterioration (exfoliated walls, deteriorated wooden doors and windows etc.). Thus 17 wards have been renovated and modernized through the replacement of doors and windows, thermal insulation and the painting of the walls with washable paint and of the pedestals with alkyd paint, laying antibacterial and thermally insulating linoleum on an area of 280 sqm.

The rehabilitation works have been performed with the help of 70 volunteers (employees of the two sections, their families, the parents of the hospitalised children) who also got involved in the project promotion and in the organisation of some health-related seminars.

The direct beneficiaries of these modernization works are the approximately 1700 paediatric neurology and neuropshychometric recovery sections, as well as the 68 employyes representing the medical and auxiliary staff of the two sections.

"Together for each and everyone gave us the opportunity to give. Through our profession, we give ourselves to the children in our care, but we are paid for this. It was different to get involved in the volunteer program! Thank you for your support, for giving us the opportunity to improve our working environment!” Dr. Silvia Luca, Chief of the Neuropshychometric Recovery Section, declared.

The modernization of the Dr. Gh. Preda” Psychiatry Hospital” is the second project in Sibiu supported in 2010 by the Rompetrol Group through the program “Together for each and everyone”, besides the “Modernization of the Pneumology II Section of the Pneumophtisiology Hospital”.
