UrBC, Magnitogorsk, January 16, 2018. Metallurg Charity Foundation (mainly supported by Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works/MMK) coordinated a medical committee meeting to look into its Keep Healthy Program’s performance in 2017, MMK Information, PR & Advertising Department reports.

‘We allocated money for hi-tech surgeries that 91 old-age patients needed. 131 retirees got their crystalline lens replacement therapy funded by the company. One person was referred to the renowned Eye Microsurgery Clinic in Yekaterinburg. 335 seniors got reimbursed on their teeth replacement expenses. Also, we keep working to provide people with disabilities with the rehabilitation appliances they need,’ the Department says.

Additionally, old-age patients and people with disabilities can spend some time at MMK-operated health resorts Assa, Yubileyny, Metallurg (in Yessentuki), Yuzhny, Berezki, and Abzakovo. 1,046 people could go to these resorts at the company’s expense last year. Besides, 1,260 retirees were treated at Metallurg Foundation’s medical center and 300 seniors and people with disabilities were treated at the organization’s geriatric center.

MMK directed around RUR 51m for its Keep Healthy Program last year all in all.
