Designing of Yakutsk Cancer Center

Construction of the Cancer Center will begin in 2014 and be completed within two years. The construction plan has entered into a “Program of social and economic development of the Far East and the Baikal Region until 2025”.

The Cancer Center will be one of the biggest social facilities after the National Center of Medicine. As the President of Yakutia said, it is necessary to develop oncology service of the Republic, prepare its staff and high-tech equipment in parallel with the construction of the building. Unfortunately, the issue of organization of the children's department in the new Cancer Center remains open. Now children are being treated in the Pediatric Center.
