❤️The development of obstetrics in a total of 97 hospitals has been completed or is in progress
The obstetrics of Hungarian health care institutions are being developed in several details: the aim is to provide maternity and baby-friendly obstetrics, hospitals and services. In the first phase, 44 hospitals were developed out of HUF 6.4 billion, and in the second phase, the infrastructural developments and equipment purchases of 53 hospitals are financed from state funds from HUF 3.3 billion, announced Miklós Kásler, Minister of Human Resources

For a family-friendly government, one of the most important points to develop in a hospital is where children are born. In Székesfehérvár, the obstetric department of Szent György Hospital was completely renewed from HUF 200 million. Let’s face it: it’s not a private hospital, it’s not something that pays, it’s a public hospital accessible to everyone.

Of course, many forgot where we started in 2010: 600 billion were taken away from health care by the Gyurcsany, hospitals were sold to Hospinvest and then bankrupt, 3,000 doctors, 6,000 health workers were laid off, dozens of hospitals closed, 16,000 active hospital beds and private beds were counted. they also wanted the health fund - the 2010 election just came in, where we sent them to the sunny with a two-thirds majority.

On Friday, the renovated family-friendly obstetrics and gynecology department was handed over at the Szent György University Teaching Hospital in Fejér County. The maternity rooms, the rooms with cots and the related rooms - washbasins, changing rooms, showers - as well as an alternative maternity support room were also designed and equipped.

Equipped with the latest technology XXI. century furnishings of the obstetrics and gynecology department also exude a homely atmosphere thanks to the renovation.

The hospital won HUF 200 million within the framework of the Family-Friendly Obstetrics Tender Program, and the Local Government of the City of Székesfehérvár also contributed to the renovation. In connection with the winning tender, construction began last December at St. George's Hospital, the maternity rooms were renovated together with the water blocks, and an alternative maternity room was created, where it will be possible to give birth in water. The obstetrics and gynecology department building also housed a one-day surgery center with three operating rooms.

At the event, Dr. László Bucsi Phd. Director General greeted the participants, who said it was a real celebration to close the project for the hospital.

He thanked the government for the renovation for launching the Family-Friendly Obstetrics Tender Program and the Mayor of Székesfehérvár, emphasizing that the Municipality of Székesfehérvár added a significant amount to the tender. The Director-General also said that he had visited a number of hospitals from the US to Australia and that the center now established could be described as world-class in the light of these experiences.

Tamás Vargha, Member of Parliament of Székesfehérvár, thanked the government and the Municipality of Székesfehérvár for the "good practice" for contributing to the current developments.

He also said that a prerequisite for the success of family-friendly obstetric care is to create a calm, family environment for the parent women and their partner in the hospital, complementing the professional background that provides adequate care for the infant and mother when needed. The Member of Parliament of Székesfehérvár also thanked all the employees of the hospital for standing up and protecting, protecting and healing the people of Fehérvár and Fejér counties in the epidemic situation that has been going on since the spring.

At the handover, dr. Mayor András Cser-Palkovics thanked the government for its family-friendly tender and for providing the resources needed to implement the development. He also thanked the constructors and designers for their work.

He also thanked Dr. László Hagymásy, head of the department, for his decades-long activity in Fehérvár and the professional management of large-scale development, as well as Dr. István Csernavölgyi, former director, and Dr. László Bucsi, director general, for their help as hospital managers.

Dr. László Hagymásy, Chief Physician, Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, emphasized that the current development will further support the practical implementation of natural childbirth and family-centered obstetrics, newborns and preterm infants.

He also spoke about the importance of one-day surgical care, highlighting that a lot of laparoscopic surgeries are performed in the ward, about 60% of these surgeries can be performed as part of this. The chief physician recalled that they had been working according to family-centered obstetric principles for about 20 years. For many years, the baby and mom can be together in the neonatal ward of St. George's Hospital for 24 hours thanks to the so-called rooming-in care, where breastfeeding is on demand, the newborn can be cared for independently by his mother. Both the baby and newborn nurses and the midwives support and help in this. The Chief Physician was pleased that there are already 35 doctors working in the ward and many of them young: this also indicates that the professional work they do at St. George's Hospital is also attractive to the new generation of doctors. Dr. László Hagymásy said that in 2019, 2,614 newborns were born in St. George's Hospital. Giving a historical perspective to family-friendly obstetrics, he also spoke about the former “dehumanized” obstetric care, where mothers gave birth to their children in shared maternity rooms.

Krisztina Lőrincz, on behalf of the Central Transdanubia Regional Directorate of the State Health Care Center, the administrator of the hospital, recalled the beginnings of the project and the period of its implementation. She said the project, which began in 2018, has resulted in the creation of one of the best-designed, developed and equipped obstetric wards in the country, pointing in the direction of future expectations.

The ceremony was attended by Gábor Törő, Member of Parliament, Zoltán Tessely, Member of Parliament, dr. Krisztián Molnár, President of the Fejér County Assembly and Annamária Östör, Health, Sports and Social Sustainability Adviser of Székesfehérvár, as well as Bishop Antal Spányi, who blessed the renewed Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
