In 2020, we mobilized our resources to face an unprecedented challenge: the COVID-19 pandemic. As managers of assets essential to society—hospitals, transportation/water infrastructures, care facilities for the disabled—we give 100% to alleviate the effects of the pandemic.
From the outset, we coordinated a swift and effective response at all our infrastructures. We adapted our assets to the pandemic and designed contingency plans to ensure the continuity of these essential services. We remembered to nurture the most vulnerable populations, with whom we collaborate through various NGOs in the countries where we operate.
At Hospital Gregorio Marañón (Madrid, Spain), which we are in the process of expanding, we adapted spaces in record time to accommodate the influx of patients. At other concessioned hospitals, like Parla and Coslada, we increased the number of beds and ICU stations. We reinforced the staff providing support services to medical personnel and ramped up cleaning and disinfection protocols. We shared our experience with other healthcare centers in an effort to fight COVID together.
