"There are days before the commemoration of the victims of the tragedy from the Collective. I think the allocation of funds from the Ministry of Health has shown that I did not take into account the political color, but the real needs of the hospital. I am glad that it happened to be now (the inauguration of the Center of big burns, n.r.), maybe those who went through that tragedy deserved to see that it can be ”, added Minister Pintea.
After the inauguration of the center, Sorina Pintea visited two patients for whom she had countless discussions with hospitals from abroad, but they were refused, the only ones willing to take her are the doctors from the Austria House in Timisoara, writes Agerpres.
"I visited a 19-year-old boy who was electrocuted, which a center in Belgium did not want to receive because it was very serious. The ones from Timisoara received it. Now, David speaks, it will be very good, because the people here have had the courage. I think that it was worth all this struggle of mine, of those from the Ministry of Health (…) who understood why these centers are needed and why these projects should not remain blocked. Now, in Timisoara we have five beds of large functional burns ”, said the minister Sorina Pintea.
The Center of Great Burns (Austria House) within the Timisoara County Hospital was inaugurated on Wednesday, in the presence of the Minister of Health, Sorina Pintea, who appreciated that the facilities are raising or even exceeding the conditions of similar units abroad.

These additional works were needed because a generator that supplies electricity in case of problems and another acquisition of the Ministry of Health through the World Bank. That is why we will start with three speakers. We considered it compulsory to start them, because the existing personnel, the equipment arrived from the Ministry of Health being finalized, it was incorrect and inhuman not to start with them, even if for the other two. We have 50 people working ”, explained the director of the County Hospital of Timisoara, Marius Craina.
