Following a spike in the number of cases in Malaysia, more hospitals are now required to expand wards rapidly in terms of equipment, supplies, and proper isolation spaces for Covid-19 patients. The Ampang Hospital is one of the country’s next main facility for treating Covid-19 patients and operating at near capacity to help cope with this surge.
After learning of the hospital’s urgent needs, DaVita Malaysia has stepped up to tackle the predicament and donated 5000 pieces of N-95 masks to address urgent shortages and help front-liners to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia.
Ampang Hospital Head of Hospital Ethics Support Service, Dr. Tan Hui Sui said the immediate support rendered by DaVita Malaysia means a lot to the team as they were expanding their isolation wards and ICU beds that currently occupy close to 130- 150 covid-19 patients. The contributions would help us to continue providing good care to our patients.
She expressed thanks to DaVita Malaysia for their rapid response in delivering the supplies on their own to the hospital within a week of discourse.
DaVita Malaysia is pleased to provide its support at a time when the community needs it most. The effort also reflects DaVita’s commitment to improving people’s lives and creating positive ripples of change in our communities.
This endemic has to be curtailed through support and cooperation from all members of society, particularly, that of the healthcare fraternity. DaVita Malaysia is steadfast in rendering whatever support possible to manage this volatile situation.
