Information Statement on  the Activities of  State Autonomous Institution of Rostov Region

Regional Advisory and Diagnostic Center  (SAI RR RADC)

The State Autonomous Institution of Rostov Region  Regional Advisory and Diagnostic Center (SAI RR RADC) is an aggregator of the state-of-art computer-based medical technologies and resources and applies those for the healthcare benefit  of the Rostov Region populace. In 2008, the quality management system was introduced, and until now it has been being constantly updated. This QM system complies with the  ISO 9001-2015 international standard requirements. This year, the Center has acquired a compliance certificate under the GOST R ISO 15189-2015 standard in respect of laboratory diagnostics.

The main lines of the Center’s activities are: specialized initial out-patient medical services, diagnostic tests (radiology, functional tests, endoscopy, laboratory tests); specialized medical care, including high-tech medical care with the utilization of minimally invasive methods of diagnostics and treatment (also in X-ray operating theater). Over 1 million people from 80 subjects of the Russian Federation acquire medical aid at the Center each year.

The Center occupies two buildings with 14,000 sq. m. of total area.

The structure of the center comprises an advisory department, 3 continuous care departments, an anesthesiology and reanimation department, a day patient facility, 4 diagnostic departments, a clinical diagnostics laboratory, and a physiotherapy department.   The Center is equipped with 1,500 medical appliances, among which there are premium class surgical systems for complex minimally invasive procedures, 3 computer tomography units, 3 MRI scanners, a mammography unit, an osteodensimetry unit, a roentgen scanner, 20 ultrasonography units, 36 units for endoscopy. The laboratory complex is equipped with more than 50 analyzers.


RADC employs 189 doctors including  20 bearers of the Excellent Worker of Public Health title, 3 bearers of the Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation title, 2 bearers of Habilitation degree in medicine, 25 Ph. D. M’s, and 3 Ph.D. Bio’s.     105 doctors are qualified as supreme category  workers, 21 doctors as the first category workers,  and 14 doctors as the second category workers. 100% of doctors on the staff are certified.

The bed capacity of the continuous care facilities is 64 beds. The interventional and research radiology department implements annually 1,100 to 1,200 operations in the following fields:   urology, gynecology, abdominal surgery, treatment of the lower extremity varicose vein disease, operational orthopedics, proctology.    Otolaryngology department implements up to 1,000 operative interventions, in which the frontline activities are operations aimed at hearing improvement, microscopic operations on nose and maxillary sinuses, laryngeal surgery.  Diagnostic and treatment therapeutics department carries out a comprehensive examination  and selection of therapy in diagnostically complex cases, genetic engineering therapy of allergies.   The day patient facility conducts  Botulinum toxin therapy and intraarticular administration of synovial fluid, medically induced revascularization under atherosclerotic ischemia of lower extremities.

There are 14 specialized centers and 7 specialized profiles within the advisory department. The activities that these pursue are: complete diagnostics; cancer prevention; enhancement of life quality for the patients;  monitoring of patients with difficult-to-diagnose and rare pathologies. Moreover, the department is currenty developing an outpatient surgery profile  within the framework of which, around 3,000 operations per year are being carried out, mainly in such fields as gynecology and ophthalmology.

Workforce capacity, administration  based on the quality management system,  positive growth dynamics for specific kinds of medical aid – all this allows a prospective doubling of our Center’s output under the condition of expansion of the facilities to the aggregate of 40,000 square meters which is impossible with the existing occupied area. Such doubling of output requires a solution in the form of construction of a new building.
