President Train Basescu decorated on Thursday, on World Health Day, a number of well-known physicians, including Sorin Oprescu, Adrian Streinu-Cercel, Leon Danaila and Serban Bradisteanu. The list of recipients included his godson, physician Catalin Carstoiu, interim manager of the Bucharest Emergency University Hospital. Carstoiu, son of the Arges deputy prefect, was appointed interim manager of the Bucharest Emergency University Hospital in December last year. Since May 2006, Carstoiu has been medical executive of the Bucharest Emergency University Hospital. Orthopaedist Carstoiu is president Basescu’s godson and was on duty on May 7, 2006, when the head of state came to the medical unit, complaining of backache and was diagnosed with a herniated disk. The president then underwent surgery in Vienna.
