“The work is organized at the highest level. The clinic has been created with the support of foreign specialists. I am sure the doctors and medical personnel working here will provide high-quality services to patients. As I was informed, more than 800 jobs have been created here. Excellent conditions have been created for doctors and medical personnel here,” President Aliyev emphasized.
The head of state added that the opening of the clinic is an indicator of the overall development of the country.
