HCMC – HCMC is set to gather its five existing field satellite emergency stations to divide them into three. Besides, the city surveyed a local Covid field hospital to establish another field satellite emergency station.
The HCMC Health Department and the HCMC 115 Emergency Center yesterday, March 25, visited Covid Field Hospital No.14 in the city’s Tan Phu District to consider setting up a field satellite station there, following the HCMC government’s decision on founding field satellite emergency stations to meet the demand for emergency treatment.
Nguyen Duy Long, director of the 115 Emergency Center, said the city had established five field 115 satellite emergency stations at local schools, children’s and cultural centers during the fourth coronavirus wave.
The premises of the stations must be returned, but the 115 Emergency Center does not have enough space to house all of the five stations. The city mapped out a plan to divide the five stations into three and set them up at three local hospitals in District 7 and the districts of Tan Phu and Binh Chanh. The station in the Quang Trung Software City in District 12 will be relocated to the headquarters of the 115 Emergency Center in District 10.
Each station will have 10 ambulances and 165 medical workers. Vehicles of the Phuong Trang and Mai Linh groups will be allocated to these stations.
