The work at the construction site of the Center for Nuclear Medicine will be starting in the near future on Russky Island. The facility will become the region’s first major public / private partnership.

Besides a cyclotron, the Center will be equipped with a radiopharmaceutical laboratory, the Primorsk region governor, Vladimir Miklushevsky, said in an interview with the “Novaya Gazeta” paper.

The medical institution has already spent 550m roubles on the purchase of 2 high-powered linear accelerators to deliver contact radiation therapy and 2 devices for computer-assisted tomography.

The “Rosatom” and “Rosnano” corporations have come into the partnership. Investments are expected to be no less than 2.5 bln roubles. The local authorities have to bring utility lines to the site. According to assessments, the partners will be able to get returns on their investments within a period of 15-20 years.
