The Jozef Bednarz Specialist Psychiatric Hospital in Swiecie is of the oldest centres for psychiatric care in Poland. It is located in a complex of buildings dating back to the 19th century.
The company has been cooperating with the hospital since 2009, and the fruit of that cooperation is, among others, modernisation of the water-pipe network and providing a secondary supply source for drinking water. The facility has also been equipped with a non-emergency medical transport vehicle. The following modernised buildings were modernised and commissioned for use: Building No. 28 containing wards IXA and IXB (general psychiatric wards for men and women); building No. 4 containing an emergency room; building No. 15 containing ward XIV (treatment of addiction to psychoactive substances); building No. 17 containing ward XVI (treatment of addictions); and building Nos. 13 and 14 intended for a diagnostic room, X-ray, pharmacy, and offices. The historical nature of the facilities under modernisation also requires that the façades are restored according to their original look.
The scope of investments also includes a comprehensive modernisation of the external networks of the hospital. Modernisation work regarding that particular aspect has been in progress since December 2013. KPIM has also modernised building No. 8, which will contain a hospital kitchen and a restaurant room, where patients can eat during visits of their family/relatives.
It is also considered to modernise the other pavilions and revitalise the historic park located within the area of Nadwislanski Park Krajobrazowy (Vistula Landscape Park).
Thanks to the efforts of its management, the hospital has been very successful in the obtaining of external funding, among others from the State Fund for Rehabilitation of Disabled Persons, and from the Voivodeship Fund for Environmental Protection, which enable the removing of asbestos-cement roofing material from the roofs of modernised buildings, as well as add an access road and elevator for the disabled people, in building No. 4. The obtained funds constitute the hospital’s own contribution to the programme of joint investments.
