By purchasing Magnetic resonance, Institute for Child and Youth Healthcare of Vojvodina might be the only one who have it. Beside that, more than 4000 examinations per year will be provided instead of 830 which is now. The waiting period for diagnosis will be reduced and disburden of other institutions as well.
“It is my pleasure as a host to officially open the humanitarian campaign “Magnet for Love”. Institute for Child and Youth Healthcare of Voivodina provides tertiary level healthcare for AP Voivodina. The small rate of newborn mortality (only 0.357 per year) witnesses successful healthcare approach. Experienced stuff and sophisticated equipment are just one of the reasons for accomplishing this results. Still, they need MR device for diagnoses. Now, children were diagnosed in Institute of oncology, KC Voivodian , and they need to be escorted to this facility by doctor and medical technician. We have referred to the public and as a result the humanitarian campaign “Magnet for Love” and foundation “Magnet for Love” were established, powered by social responsible companies MK Group and TDE Services.
