In that regard, 52 inpatient wards, 12 emergency units, 26 outpatient areas, 14 operating rooms, 15 clinical laboratories and 15 imaging services were remodeled.

Other remodeling works benefited 298 polyclinics, 1,649 family doctor's offices, 27 dental clinics, eight maternal homes, 275 pharmacies, 20 blood banks, 131 elderly clubs and 89 elderly homes.

In addition, 6,153 pieces of medical equipment were acquired, totaling 24,317 over the past four years.
