Utilized capacity of medical and surgical departments was compared to real population-based needs and insurance companies evaluated ones for various kinds of medical care. As a result, bed capacity of the hospital was reconsidered and rearranged. Intra-hospital standards of diagnostics and treatment inclusive of medical forms for various nosologies were introduced. New departments were created, as well as a special center for medical advice and diagnosis.

Medical information system was designed for better accounting and control of medical activities in this hospital; the tool to this end was to equip every workplace with a capacity to conduct electronically the medical records, to draft research projects, to obtain upon enquiry the required diagnostic data, etc.

These combined 4-focuses management brought about significant improvement in the main qualitative and quantitative indicators of this clinics activities. Growth in number of treated patients for the last three years was of 39.8%, number of surgical procedures performed grew by 35.6%, mean hospital stay reduced by 3.3 days.
