As it was noted during the conversation, thanks to the support of the State Duma speaker, the number of ambulance cars in the region increased by 48 units. All of them were granted to substations that provide medical assistance to the population of Penza regions, which allowed reducing the time needed to get to a location of an emergency call. The total time of waiting does not exceed 20 minutes. 88% of the region medical institutions can provide such speed of arrival, while the federal standard is 86%. In 2-3 years, it is planned to reach 100%.
