During the visit, Bakytzhan Sagintayev got acquainted with the work of the registry, call center, working classrooms and IVF laboratory.

The new clinic is built taking into account international requirements and is provided with modern equipment. Its feature is a completely isolated operating unit and an embryological laboratory. This enables to maintain the microclimate and supply sterile air of constant temperature and humidity. Such a system of "clean rooms" allows obtaining high clinical results, which significantly increases the effectiveness of treatment.
In addition, the clinic is a prime example of the development of medical tourism in Almaty. According to the director of the IRM, the provided medical services are not inferior to foreign analogues and have a lower cost. High qualification of doctors, modern equipment and loyalty to the laws of Kazakhstan attract a large flow of foreigners. For two years, the number of patients who arrived in Almaty from Turkey, China, Germany, Russia and the United States for medical tourism has increased several times. In its turn, the IRM clinic can host up to 3000 families each year.
