At the General Hospital “Dr. Ivo Pedišić ”in Sisak, only three buildings were used after the earthquake. The campaign “Let’s help the Sisak hospital” raises funds for emergency help to the hospital
Zagreb / Sisak, January 5, 2021 – General Hospital “Dr. Ivo Pedišić” in Sisak was destroyed in the earthquakes that hit Sisak-Moslavina County at the end of 2020.
Since it is essential that the hospital has an emergency function, the association Pomaganje je uvijek IN and the crowdfunding platform Croinvest have launched a mass financing campaign “Let’s help the Sisak hospital”.
Currently, only three buildings can be used in the hospital – gynecology, surgery and hemodialysis. The central pavilion is under construction and does not yet have a use permit, and five buildings have collapsed. In the hospital, in addition to buildings, furniture and medical, telecommunications and IT equipment were also damaged.
“Fifty patients are currently hospitalized. The hospital has 408 beds and between 1,000 and 1,200 patients pass through it daily. We now perform only diagnostic processing and process emergency internal medicine, infectological, pediatric and surgical cases. Unfortunately, we have to send more and more difficult cases to Zagreb “, said mr. sc. Tomislav Dujmenović, director of the General Hospital “Dr. Ivo Pedišić “.
The total damage to the hospital cannot yet be estimated at this time, but while waiting for the hospital to be systematically rebuilt, it needs help in urgently procuring the equipment needed by healthcare professionals and patients during their hospital stay.
“The funds we are collecting are kind of emergency aid to the Sisak hospital! That is why I am asking companies and citizens to get involved in the campaign with their donations. Let’s reanimate the Sisak hospital with our hearts“, said Ognjen Bagatin, president of the association Pomaganje je uvijek IN.
The campaign “Let’s help the Sisak hospital” will last for 30 days with the aim of collecting one million kuna, which will be transferred entirely to the hospital’s account. At the end of the campaign, the hospital will publish a report on what the donations were spent on.
