More Than 1,400 Ukrainian Patients Have Been Transferred to EU Hospitals Since March

Tuesday, 15 November 2022

Since March 2022, with the support of the European Union, more than 1,400 Ukrainian patients have been transferred across Europe to provide them with specialised healthcare in hospitals.

The EU office in Ukraine reported about it. 

1,400 patients were transferred to hospitals in 18 EU countries.

The hub, which opened on September 1, is strategically located near the Polish city of Rzeszów, which hosts one of the closest airports to Ukraine. It offers a safe space for the patients arriving from Ukraine before they are flown out to receive treatment in a hospital in another European country. Sometimes special evacuation planes - which are provided by Norway twice a week - leave for one patient. So, recently a plane flew specially for a 3-month-old baby.

In the two and a half months since the opening, the number of patients transferred to Europe from Ukraine has increased by approximately 300 people. In early September, it was reported about 1,100 evacuated Ukrainian patients.
