PROVEN Helps with COVID-19 Field Hospital Buildout
With the recent explosion of COVID-19 hospitalisations as the county goes through another wave of infections, the University Hospital of the West (UHWI) in a national defense response, launched and made a plea for support in their emergency expansion effort to add at least nineteen (19) modular hard-wall structures to the Accident and Emergency area, to help manage the covid-19 patient care.
PROVEN Investments Limited immediately answered the call and swiftly donated US$12,000 to allow for the much-needed increase and build out of sixty to eighty (60 – 80) bed capacity for COVID-19 patients.
PROVEN aligned with the UHWI and recognized that the critical expansion serves as a beacon of hope for our hospital front liners, patients and students, as we continue to manage in this severe crisis to protect while maintaining the UHWI teaching programme to avoid future possible shortage of skills.
On a recent donor-walk through to inspect the unit, Belinda Williams, PROVEN Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs joined Carimed Limited, Desnoes & Geddes Foundation with UHWI officials. She handed over payment confirmation and congratulated the effort – “PROVEN joins in this vital response as the scourge of Covid-19 continues to weigh heavily on economies and societies. Lives and livelihoods are tremendously impacted, and we are mindful that our Front-line workers are burdened by the pressure imposed on our health and safety resources. The use of tents was not sustainable and more over quite uncomfortable in this climate. This modular hard-wall solution is extremely humane and advanced with covid-19 technology and truly PROVEN is proud to join like-minded private sector firms in making this project a reality for our nation. We prosper when our communities are well.”
Kevin Allen UHWI Chief Executive Officer noted “Thanks to corporate Jamaica for entering into this partnership with the University Hospital. We are appreciative of this gift that will serve the people of Jamaica well. It will surely serve our clinical team, our nurses and our doctors and will provide a safe and comfortable environment in which they will practice and care. The fight is about the entire health ministry and those we are striving to protect.”
The Field Hospital already commissioned and in use, even whilst it is being finalized in its buildout is equipped to operate autonomously and to offer high-quality medical assistance in these dire times and beyond.
