MFT Group, Mondial donate emergency quarantine facilities to state-run hospitals
This is in support of a larger undertaking spearheaded by a group of architects to build emergency quarantine facilities across the country. With these facilities, MFT Group and Mondial aim to address the shortage of rooms, thus enabling more hospitals to accommodate COVID-19 patients and prevent other persons under monitoring (PUMs) or persons under investigation (PUIs) from being sent home. “We have all seen how our brave frontliners are facing this medical crisis head on, albeit with no full gears on. That’s why it is only fitting that, in our own capacity, MFT Group, and our subsidiary Mondial, do our part in looking for new opportunities to help them and support their needs with a common goal of saving more lives,” said MFT Group chief executive officer Mica Tan. MFT Group will donate these temporary quarantine facilities to the Philippine Heart Center in Quezon City and to the Fernando Air Base Hospital in Lipa, Batangas. For its part, Mondial will donate the facility to Ospital ng Maynila.
According to William Ti, principal architect of WTA Architecture and Design Studio, the 15-bed emergency quarantine facility can be fitted with partitions to segregate the patients. It also includes a testing area and testing box, toilets with toiletries, sanitation and disinfection areas, and a nurse’s lounge.
