What you need to know:

  • The hospital, at least for now, can cope and even extend a helping hand to neighbouring hospitals.
  • Its on-site high purity oxygen generation equipment can supply 28,000 litres of oxygen per hour, with its backup system able to supply and sustain same quantity of oxygen in case of a breakdown.
