The modular hospital will ease work and eliminate the bottleneck effect at the admissions department. Above all, it will be possible to help those brought in by the Emergency Medical Service (NMPD) more quickly.
Hospital board member Agra Ločmele said: “[The buildings] will ease [the job] very significantly, we will have an additional 40 beds for the emergency medical center and an additional three surgery rooms that would allow returning to their normal rhythm.”
The installation of modules will continue after the public holiday this week.
Modules that will now be used to accommodate and isolate Covid-19 patients will later be used by heart doctors because their building will be demolished to build a different one.
The cost of the modular hospital is more than €3 million. The funds consist of the State budget allocation and of European funds.
