We have found ourselves in a very difficult time that demands solidarity and unity in the doings of all of us. Everyone must be involved in fight against the invisible enemy. To further support the health care the Port of Gdynia gives more breathing machines to the Polish Red Cross Maritime Hospital in Gdynia Redłowo.
“We are witnessing a daily heroic fight of the Polish health care, who risk their health and lives saving patients with the coronavirus. We are part of the local community which is why we do our best to assist Pomeranian Hospitals, who despite this difficult situation remain on guard with utmost care to protect our health. I admire the attitude of all services engaged in the fight against the coronavirus, and especially the medical staff,” says Adam Meller, President of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.
The equipment will assist hospitals to work even more efficiently. The machine will support us not only in current situation but will serve for many years to come.
In the face of the challenge the world has to deal with today, the Port of Gdynia is taking numerous actions to support the fight against the coronavirus, out of concern for the local community. It monitors the situation in hospitals on an ongoing basis and is in constant contact with medical staff to respond to the needs of hospitals.
“On behalf of the Hospital Board and all my colleagues, doctors, nurses, I would like to thank the Port of Gdynia Authority for the breathing machines that will save the life and health of our patients. This equipment will be used now, during the pandemic when there are more diseases, but also for many years to come. We are very grateful that the Port of Gdynia is involved in many actions with the aim to sponsor equipment for our hospital, for many wards, as well as organizing preventive actions. We, doctors and nurses, as well as families, know how important the equipment that our ward received today is. Thanks to it we will be able to help many patients and also save many people who will soon return to their families and work,” says Joanna Sowa-Szpajer, MD, Head of the Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Ward, PRC Marine Hospital.
The Port of Gdynia is the initiator of the "Let's Share the Good" action, involving large companies in the purchase of expensive equipment, leaving smaller equipment such as masks, gloves or disposable suits out, so smaller and medium-sized enterprises or private individuals could contribute.
We also encourage other companies who wish to get involved in any way in the fight against the virus to join us. So far, the following companies have participated in our action: Invest Komfort S.A., Torus, Porta KMI Poland, Corleonis Sp. z o.o. S.K.A., Korporacja Budowlana Doraco Sp. z o.o.
Soon 2 more laboratories will arrive to hospitals in Gdynia and Gdansk.
