MMK Provides Housing for Five Company Doctors

UrBC, Magnitogorsk, February 4, 2019. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) provided five studio apartments to accommodate the young doctors from the plant’s Central Polyclinic 1, MMK’s Information, PR & Advertising Department reports.

‘The plant’s management is making efforts to relieve the medical staff shortage, which is the Russian healthcare sector’s most pressing problem these days. For one, we offer studio apartments to the young doctors from our clinic, who can live in their new homes rent-free. After ten years in the company’s employment, they will come to own their places. This means the young people now have a place to live in, and our clinic has the badly needed doctors (a physician, an ophthalmologist, an endocrinologist, a neurologist, and an X-ray technician). All the five young doctors have already earned a great reputation with the clinic’s management, are popular with their patients, feel enthusiastic about their jobs, and have great professional growth prospects. According to Dean Vera Shevelina, these professionals keep on improving their skills, attend training courses, do some extra studying on their own, and take part in all kinds of local professional contests. Magnitogorsk’s leading experts hold them all in high regard,’ MMK says.

According to the latest available data, some 50,000 MMK workers come to Central Polyclinic 1 as patients these days.
