Private Sector Sets up 450-Bed Field Hospital at Bangna-Trad KM 5
to Open in Early August to Support Government Policy
Hospitals under Principal Healthcare Company have worked with businesses and foundations to set up a field hospital to Ministry of Public Health standards as the government races to speed up care amid overwhelming demand for private and public hospital beds in the 3rd phase of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Principal Healthcare is cofounding the field hospital with MQDC, EEC Engineering Network, T&B Media Global, Dhanin Tawee Chearavanont Foundation, Ahriyavraromp Foundation, and Buddharaksa Foundation.
Each partner has assisted for construction, AC systems, and wastewater treatment that optimize safety for patients and healthcare teams, including all the facility’s operators, the overall environment, and the physicians and nurses who care for patients and provide public healthcare.
The cofounding non-profits – Dhanin Tawee Chearavanont Foundation, Ahriyavraromp Foundation, Buddharaksa Foundation – will provide ongoing support.
The field hospital is located at Soi Wat Palad Priang, Bangna-Trad KM 5, Bang Kaeo, Bang Phli, Samut Prakan.
The fabric building comes with AC and ventilation systems to ensure safety within and around the hospital. The hospital’s six sections accommodate a total of 450 beds for patients in the “green” and “yellow” categories. Principal Healthcare hospitals have expanded their ICU capacity to treat people in acute need including patients from field hospitals.
