The Head of the Republican Clinical Hospital, an experienced medical practitioner and administrator, will oversee the medical direction, ensuring effective interaction between public authorities and healthcare institutions. Another issue raised during the working discussion was the name of the medical college. A decision was made recently to merge the Tiraspol and Bendery medical educational institutions. The option of naming the united educational institution after the native of the Pridnestrovian land, the famous doctor and scientist Nikolai Sklifosovsky was considered. They came to the conclusion after the discussion that it is expedient to keep the college named after Lev Tarasevich, which the Tiraspol educational institution has had since 1968. The President considers it right to name one of the medical institutions of the republic after Sklifosovsky. Perhaps it will be the Republican Clinical Hospital or the Republican Emergency Medical Center.
