Bucharest, Romania – Isopan Est has donated materials for the construction of a modular hospital in the grounds of Elias University Emergency Hospital in Bucharest. The donation includes Isobox PU sandwich panels.
The hospital is being constructed by Romanian charity Daruieste Viata, which specialises in healthcare infrastructure. It is part of an initiative to increase the number of beds for coronavirus patients, and keep them separate from other patients.
The four-week build will create 50 new beds for critical cases in three modules, plus a lab and a sterilisation area. There will also be a triage system.
The charity says the project should be easy to replicate on a national scale.There are plans to turn it into a burns unit after the pandemic.
‘We greatly appreciated the rapid reaction of Isopan Est and the promptness with which they responded to our request,’ said Oana Gheorghiu, one of the charity’s co-founders. ‘We hope that other companies will get involved.’
