Medpark Foundation launches the "Care for our colleagues" program to support the medical workers who have suffered from COVID-19 infection

12 May, 2020

Since the beginning of the epidemiological situation, Medpark International Hospital has been constantly looking for ways to protect its patients and staff, but also to help reduce the social impact of the COVID-19. At this stage, Medpark team identified the need to get involved in supporting medical colleagues who suffered from the new coronavirus infection, launching the first project of the Medpark Foundation - "Care for our colleagues".

The program provides free medical care for all employees of the national health system who are recovering from COVID-19 infection: doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and all support staff. Because the effects of the new coronavirus are long-lasting, and the infection in moderate and severe forms can leave sequelae on certain organs (lungs, liver, heart, kidneys, etc.), after treating these patients need special attention. In order to assess their health condition, detect possible consequences and treat them in time, the Medpark Foundation will provide them the necessary medical services, fully covering their cost.

Elena Mornealo, President of the Medpark Foundation: “The health system, both nationally and globally, faces unprecedented challenges and the pressure is much greater than usual. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues and we want to support the medical workers during this period, which is why we launched this social project. We are confident that together we can deal with the pandemic and reduce its negative effects."

The services provided under the "Care for our colleagues" program include all the assessments and investigations necessary to assess the state of health following COVID-19 infection, to detect possible consequences and to correct them. These include:

  • therapeutic evaluation,
  • assessment of the functional condition of the lungs and imaging by CT (computed tomography),
  • cardiological examination by specific investigations,
  • assessment of liver and kidney function by laboratory tests,
  • psychological counseling, if necessary.

Depending on the results of the evaluation, will be made recommendations for the treatment of affected functions and repeated evaluations, ensuring the continuous monitoring process.

All services are provided free of charge at the Medpark International Hospital, and their cost is fully covered by donation to the Medpark Foundation.
