This event was prepared to listen to experts’ opinions and discuss the feasibility and considerations of the National Assembly and City Council as citizens’ interest in the establishment of the Ulsan Public Medical Center has increased due to the recent corona19 infectious disease epidemic in Ulsan.

On this day, Rep. Seo said in a welcoming remark, “Seeing the spread of Corona 19 in the region, citizens have become very interested in the establishment of public medical systems and public medical centers.” “The expansion of facilities was not sufficient as the public medical beds were insufficient compared to other local governments. “I need it.”

As of 2018, only 130 beds in Ulsan public medical institutions can properly cope with social infectious diseases. Compared to 2,735 Gwangju and 3129 Daejeon, which have similar populations to Ulsan, this is a very scarce reality.

Rep. Seo clarified the position of the establishment of the Ulsan Public Medical Center, saying, “Because it is a problem that enormous citizen taxes must be spent, it is necessary to draw a rational plan by benchmarking the case of hospitals that have established an efficient public medical system and solved the operating deficit.”

Ulsan Mayor Song Chul-ho said in a congratulatory remark at the debate, “We are in a hurry to build construction such as preparation for feasibility study service and business plan submission.” “Let’s join forces to establish Ulsan Medical Center”.

Next, Kim Sang-yuk, head of the city’s Citizen Health Bureau as the speaker of the debate, gave a presentation on the theme for about 20 minutes under the theme of’Establishment of Ulsan Public Medical Center’.

“According to the government’s plan to expand local medical centers, Daejeon, Gwangju, Ulsan, and Sejong, which do not have public medical centers, are becoming the target areas for new construction projects.” The goal is to finalize the business promotion,” he said.

In the following discussion, opinions from various fields were conveyed.

“People’s interest in public medicine has increased since the corona pandemic,” said Noh Jung-hoon, manager of the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s Public Medicine Division. “It is necessary to establish a public medical center that can respond to social infectious diseases.”

Regarding the establishment plan, he said, “We need to speed up the site selection process,” and “we will discuss with the Ministry of Information and Technology within this year to improve the preliminary system related to public medical centers.”

Kim Jang-nyeon, vice president of the Ulsan Hospital, suggested that the establishment of the Ulsan Public Medical Center should be pursued in a direction that professionally responds to areas such as infections, industrial accidents, severe rehabilitation, and high-risk delivery that have not been dealt with in private medical care through selection and concentration did.

Meanwhile, to prevent the corona 19 infectious disease, this debate was conducted by keeping the quarantine rules such as checking fever and sitting at a distance, and minimizing the number of participants on the day.
