In 1968, the hydrogeological and oil and gas exploration was carried out in the North Siwa region by the Crimean Geology Association. In total for the period of work (from 1968 to 1972) was drilled 21 wells. One of them is a well of iodine-bromine chloride-sodium water on the basis of which the Aquatic Medicine Center operates.
After completion of the exploration work the well was tamed. However, in 1976, it was discovered by local inhabitants and adapted for spontaneous immersion.
Maybe this place would still be a place for a puddle, known only to the local, but in reality he was destined to become something more significant.
The fact is that in those years in Genichesk lived one outstanding person, who united in itself many brilliant qualities. We are talking about Dmitry Antipovich Kryvonos, an outstanding military surgeon who passed the entire Second World War. He saw all the terror of those days. 180 days of his life, Dmitry Antipovich spent bombings in the very heart of Stalingrad, working in a harsh environment. This certainly speaks of the great spirit and stability of this man.
It was in the late 70's that he began to carefully study the properties of mineral water flowing through the well from the well. Having a rich medical and economic experience, it is likely that even then, Dmitry Antipovich set himself the goal of building a hydropathic hospital, the main purpose of which was to help the sick and prevent various diseases. He also dreams of telling as many people as possible about the healing properties of this water. And so he burned with the idea that already August 5, 1980 was solemnly opened to the Vodolikarny. Much has not been said about how much effort and resources was put in place for this result in those difficult times. But Dmitry Antipovich could do it.
And people from the whole Soviet Union went to the hydropathic clinic, simple employees and representatives of the party nomenclature, and so popular was the hydropathic hospital in Soviet times, which did not spend the summer time to serve everyone.
In the 90's and at the beginning of the two-thousandths, the material technical base was completely renewed, which made the hydropathic hospital of the present-day appearance.
