History

1953 – The Motherhood Ward is established in Municipal Gynaecology and Obstetrics Hospital in Madalińskiego Street.

In 1975, the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Clinic of IMC was established in Szpital Wolski. Building X housed Obstetrics and Newborns Unit with 93 beds for patients with pregnancy problems and ca. 45 cots for newborns. The Gynaecology Unit was located in Building VIII.

Between 1975 and 1985, the Chief of OGC also worked as Regional Obstetrics and Gynaecology Consultant for Warsaw voivodeship and between 1980 and October 1991 – as Head of National Expert Team in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

As part of the national supervision system, Prof. Michał Troszyński developed reports with detailed analyses of mortality rates of women during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum period. The analyses were further expanded by data on early mortality of foetuses and newborns and has been continued by Prof. Troszyński to date.

In years 1975–1977, new perinatal medicine rules were introduced during training for heads of obstetrics units and regional consultants. The new regulations were transformed into an annual obligatory course organised by the Centre for Post-Graduate Medical Training. The programme was hosted by the Institute of Mother and Child and Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Institutes of medical universities.

Between 1987 and 1993 the Clinic was renovated, with only two units operating throughout the period – Early Pregnancy Disorders in Building VI and Gynaecology in Building VIII.

In 1993 the rebuilt clinic was reopened in Building X. With the long reconstruction completed, the building could better accommodate and offered better conditions to mothers and children. The new Labour Ward had four separate delivery rooms suitable for family delivery.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology Clinic of the Institute of Mother and Child received Ministry of Health 3(+) reference rating in perinatology. It is the highest supra-regional level of qualification.

The clinic was managed by:

1975–1992 – Prof. Michał Troszyński

1992–2002 – Prof. Bogdan Chazan

2002–2007 – Prof. Krzysztof Tomasz Niemiec
