This is in line with the MVP Group’s effort to help hospitals in Metro Manila that have been overcrowded with patients due to the surge of Covid-19 cases in the country.
The facility will house a total of 240 individual air-conditioned quarantine tents and beds.
Doctors and nurses will work on 8-hour shifts 24/7 to treat MVP group employees throughout their 14-day isolation.
Meals, medical supplies, and phone and data connectivity will all be provided.
Employees who test positive for COVID-19 will be given quarantine leave, separate from standard sick leave credits.
“The essential services – connectivity, power, water, road networks, among others — we have continuously provided since the onset of the pandemic have been the source of stability for many Filipinos, and it is our employees – the backbone of all our companies – that have allowed us to be contributors in moving for economic recovery,” Pangilinan said.
Apart from this, Pangilinan earlier committed to provide vaccines to his group’s employees, qualified dependents, and household members, adequate for 300,000 individuals at no cost.
“Our efforts to take care of our workforce aim to reduce overall community transmission, while protecting and providing breathing space to hospitals and medical frontliners, who have been our anchor and support as we continue to battle this pandemic,” Pangilinan said.
Metro Pacific Hospital Holdings Inc. operates the largest hospital chain in the Philippines.
Through MPIC’s logistics arm MetroPac Movers Inc., Pangilinan also initiated the storage of over one million vials of COVID-19 vaccines in partnership with the government.
