Michał Sternicki has died

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Michał Sternicki. Over many years, Michał was the Chairman of the Board of the Friends of Children’s Hospitals in Warsaw. For many of us he was also a close friend and wonderful colleague.

On behalf of thousands of kids we would like to thank you for the enormous effort you had put into making their lives better. You will be sorely missed.

Videostroboscopy equipment for the Pediatric Hospital of WUM

In the otolaryngology department we’ve just unpacked the videostroboscopy equipment. This is a set of special micro cameras and audio equipment for examining children with laryngeal problems.

As Lidia Zawadzka-Głos, M.D., head of the Clinical Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology and Pediatrics, says:

“The equipment provides the ability to monitor laryngeal functions after surgical treatment and voice acoustic analysis. It will be used to diagnose respiratory and phonic disorders. The devices will enable comprehensive care for patients treated for phonation and respiratory disorders, including children with tracheostomy. This is a chance for children to recover and be a part of their social groups.”

The purchase of equipment was possible thanks to the money collected during the 1% campaign in 2016 and the generous donations of companies and individuals. We say a warm thank you to all donors – This is you who make a chance for little patients for a full recovery.
