DPWH thanks PSC for use of facilities

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) thanked the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) for its help, recognizing the sports agency’s initiative of offering its facilities as support to the government’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We at DPWH recognize your unwavering support for the conversion of the Ninoy Aquino Stadium and the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex facility as a designated quarantine facility for COVID-19 patients,” said DPWH Undersecretary for UPMO Operations and Technical Services Emil Sadain in the DPWH’s letter to PSC.

In the letter addressed to PSC Chairman William Ramirez, Usec. Sadain praised the sports agency’s prompt response to the inadequacy of health facilities due to the influx of Covid-19 patients.

The DPWH official, who also heads the Task Force on Augmentation of National and Local Healthcare Facilities praised the cooperation of the public and private sector.

“The combined efforts of public and private entities have helped in the swift implementation of the national and local healthcare facilities as one of your urgent measures in addressing the current health crisis,” said Sadain.

In response, PSC OIC Ramon Fernandez thanked the DPWH on behalf of Ramirez and the PSC Board and assured DPWH the sports agency’s continuous support to fight this global health crisis.

“We thank DPWH for trusting us and working with us.  Rest assured that the PSC will always be supporting this fight against COVID-19 in ways we can,” said Fernandez.

The PSC turned-over its three major facilities—Ninoy Aquino Stadium (NAS), Rizal Memorial Coliseum (RMC), and Multi-Purpose Arena (MPA) in PhilSports Complex—early this year and were converted to “We Heal as One Centers.”
