Kutaisi Regional Referral Hospital
Kutaisi Regional Referral Hospital, located in Kutaisi – the second largest city in Georgia – opened its doors in 2007. It is the cornerstone facility of our operations in west Georgia. While the hospital primarily caters to Kutaisi, it also serves as a major referral hospital for specialised services and tertiary care for all regions in west Georgia. It also serves as a referral centre for our community hospitals located in Terjola, Tkubuli, Tskaltubo and Khoni. It offers one of the most comprehensive portfolio of services in this part of the country, including the full range of outpatient and inpatient medical and surgical specialties as well as 24-hour emergency room services for any age group, and has a strong reputation (based on feedback from patients and physicians, including follow-up calls performed by our call centre) for intensive care, cardiology (interventional and cardio surgery), angiology, urology, gynaecology and diagnostics. It offers the widest range of secondary and tertiary neonatal and paediatric services in the region. In addition, it has departments for dialysis, mammography and histopathology as well as a blood bank. It was the first hospital to introduce a hypothermia service in west Georgia and the first to introduce computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging for diagnostics, interventional cardiology services and cardio surgery in west Georgia. The Imereti referral laboratory that serves the rest of our Imereti healthcare facilities is also located here. The laboratory has obtained International Organisation for Standardisation (“ISO”) 9001:2008 certification, accreditation awarded from the International Organisation for Standardisation in January 2014.
We constructed the hospital in 2011. We launched the West Georgia oncology centre at the same site in June 2015.
