Development of Nuclear
Towns and Cities

With support from ROSATOM,
measures were taken to improve
urban infrastructure, and social
projects in the field of culture,
education and patriotic upbringing
of youth were implemented in 10
closed administrative and territorial
formations (CATFs) and 10 satellite
cities adjacent to NPPs.

Four CATFs in the
nuclear industry
(Zheleznogorsk, Zarechny,
Ozersk and Snezhinsk)
were given the status
of priority social and
economic development
areas (PSEDAs) in 2018.

ROSATOM continued to implement the Lean Polyclinic project.


The aim of the project is to optimize the most problematic processes in the work of primary healthcare institutions, reduce queuing time, simplify the procedure for arranging an appointment with a doctor, ensure optimal availability of healthcare institutions and increase the level of satisfaction with the availability of medical care.

In the reporting year, the project was implemented in 25 healthcare institutions of CATFs and other cities and towns where nuclear organizations are located in 20 regions of Russia. As a result:

The time spent by patients at the
reception desk was reduced
two- to four-fold;

Queuing time for patients waiting
to be seen by a doctor was reduced
three- to seven-fold;

The number of visits to outpatient
clinics as part of health
screening or medical check-ups
was reduced two- to three-fold;

The waiting time for blood
sampling was reduced by
a factor of 1.5-2.

In 2018, the Public Council continued to support the environmental expert community in the regions where key nuclear enterprises are located. 'Non-nuclear' universities became the core participants of this work. Their faculty members, graduate and postgraduate students studied and discussed the 'Green Square of the Zero-Carbon Power Industry of the Future' concept. A total of 19 universities in 12 regions of Russia were involved in this work, and 37 project teams were formed.
