“Personally, I see the passing year as interesting and tough. And the first reason for pride to me is completed construction of high-end infectious hospital in Penza. No other region has such medical department, and I am grateful to Valentin Mikhailovich Zhuravlev [general director of JSC ‘Penzastroy’] and his crew for quality work,” said Vasily Bochkarev during a meeting with journalists of top regional media on Monday, December 29.
The second notable achievement, according to the head of the Penza region, is the opening of a new surgery wing of tuberculosis hospital that was highly praised by the Moscow and Kazan professionals.

We began producing turkey meat and will get almost 15 thousand tons of diet poultry that not only satisfies internal demand but gets supplied to store chains of other regions, contributing to good image of the Penza region,” stressed Vasily Bochkarev.
