MANILA, Philippines — In line with efforts to help both medical frontliners and patients in the battle against COVID-19, EEI Corp. has made available 64 modules to hospitals across Luzon.

The Yuchengco-led firm said from the eight hospitals they identified to be in most need of the modules, eight units will be provided for each health facility.

“These brand-new modules which are originally intended as office and living quarters in construction sites can be utilized to provide aid and convenience to both patients and frontliners in this trying time,” EEI president and CEO Roberto Jose Castillo said.

Each portable module is equipped with air conditioning units which were solicited from the members of Philippine Society of Ventilation and Refrigeration Engineers (PSVARE) and donated by the Philippine Constructors Association (PCA) and its members. A total of 200 sets of beds, mattress, pillows and blankets was also provided.

The modules have already been deployed to the following hospitals: San Juan City Medical Center; Mandaluyong City Medical Center; Lung Center of the Philippines; Philippine General Hospital; Quezon Institute; Antipolo City Hospital System; The Medical City South Luzon; and the Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center (Ilocos Norte).

“EEI hopes for the fast recovery of the people afflicted with the virus and wishes for the safety and good health of the rest,” Castillo said.

The engineering contractor continues to aid the country in the fight against COVID-19 by sharing their expertise and building safe health facilities.
