At the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital the DORMA door closers are proving that quality materials and a careful specification will provide best value in practice.

The Medicover hospital which has been built in the Wilanów District in Warsaw is one of the largest hospital investments in the history of private health service in Poland. It is the first private hospital for children and adults in Poland with such an extensive hospitalisation profile and health care meeting the highest international standards. The erection of the Medicover hospital started in July 2007 in Miasteczko Wilanów – a neighbourhood in Warsaw. Medicover invested close to EUR 40 mln in the project and is the first private hospital to offer such a wide range of medical services. The total area of the hospital amounts to almost 16,000 m2.

The hospital at ul. Madalińskiego was established in 1953 according to a design by an engineer Władysław Borawski. At first the building was designed as a public outpatient clinic but soon after the commencement of work the need for a modern gynaecological and maternity hospital was deemed more urgent. The gynaecological ward was opened in July 1953 and the maternity ward with a labour unit – half a year later. The hospital used to be a clinical backoffice of the Institute of Mother and Child and later part of Zespół Opieki Zdrowotnej nr 1. (health care centre) and it was already then that the labour ward at ul. Madalińskiego was a crucial element of the Warsaw health care landscape.
