- Thanks to the unbelievable efforts of our doctors and the social restrictions which are in place, we have managed to cope with the first wave of the coronavirus. I want to believe that soon the virus will die down, but we need to continue to look after our health and the health of people around us. The doctors are on the front line of the battle against coronavirus, and they need help. The purchasing of required equipment and individual protection equipment will consequently allow the doctors to work even better during this tough period.

Everyone has come together in order to help doctors. The only way to overcome these complications is to work together and remember the principles of cooperation. We really appreciate the support shown by HC SKA. This support will help us offer top-level medical care to our young patients, even during this challenging period.
