In December, Blocks Group won first prize in the prestigious national competition Building of the Year 2022 in the category Social Infrastructure - Healthcare. It was given for the newly opened Blocks Care Rehabilitation Hospital by a jury of 33 experts, chaired by Professor Georgi Stanishev, an architect. The award was received by Blocks's founder and CEO, Mr Ilian Grigorov, at an official ceremony at Sofia Event Centre. 

"I and my team want to thank the respectable jury for the recognition. We are extremely happy and proud with what we achieved in such a short time. I am sure that with the hospital's quality realisation we are setting the strong foundations for our success in the field of care and social activity," said Mr Ilian Grigorov. 

The concept design for the hospital was created by HKS Architects, a leading architectural studio for healthcare facilities. Its Bulgarian partner was the team of Proacrh, lead by architect Iliya Evrev, who developed the project further on a conceptual and technical level. Blocks's partnership with the most prestigious centre for rehabilitation in the world, Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, was crucial for the project's development. Shirley Ryan Ability Lab has been a leader in the US in the past three decades and has the largest research budget in the world in this field.

The rehabilitation hospital in Bulgaria is built in compliance with all international standards and is among the most modern in Europe. It is located at the foot of the Vitosha mountain on an area of 14,000 sq m and has an inpatient unit with 100 beds in 54 single and double rooms, an outpatient unit with 17 offices, 6 rehabilitation rooms and rooms for hydro procedures. Besides complete outpatient rehabilitation for children and adults, the hospital also offers early rehabilitation for patients after active treatment.

SHOW THEM YOUR LOVE
Having a pet is one of the most rewarding things in the world. The unburdened joy of your dog when you return home from work and take it for a walk. The quiet purr of the cat huddled in your lap after a stressful day.

"Preventive activities are the modern European way to rethink and refine the processes of protection and improvement of the nation's health," says Dr Tihomir Savchev, Vita Hospital Manager.

MISSION QUALITY HEALTHCARE
Just like happy families from the famous Tolstoy definition, well managed medical facilities are alike. In them, organisation of each process is optimised to perfection.
HEALTHY AND HAPPY
In the endless weeks when we were forced to stay at our homes, pets proved to be of invaluable help. Even in the darkest moments, the long walks with our dogs and our cats' affection provided us with the much-needed feel of stability, love and even joy.
CREATING SMILES
If we decide to list the things that we automatically take for a valid truth the notion "nobody likes going to the dentist" will be probably among the first ten.
MORE MOVEMENT, LESS PAIN
Thousands of years ago, people crossed Africa's savannahs and deserts, hunted in the frozen tundras and mountains of Ice Age Europe and Asia, discovered a route to North and South America and remote corners of the world such as Australia and New Zealand.
LOVE IS CARE
If there is a world trend that often goes under the radar of attention, this is the attitude towards pets. Modern people take an increasing number of dogs, cats, birds and exotic animals at home, and spend more time and attention in taking care of them.
LET'S OPEN OUR EYES
We have five senses, but eyesight is the one of them that suffers the most from modern lifestyle. Since screens became an integral part of our lives, we strain our eyes from the second we awake to the moment we fall asleep.
CREATING A SMILE
Teeth are among the few parts of the human body that are not only extremely important for the proper functioning of the organism, but that also influence the self-confidence and the person's overall charisma.
