Phase 1 of the COVID-19 emergency facility at the Rizal Memorial Sport Complex (RMSC) has been completed and is ready to be used.
Funded by Bloomberry Cultural Foundation, Inc., the social responsibility arm of Bloomberry Resorts Corporation, the project responds to the dire need to alleviate the burden of healthcare institutions from the COVID-19 pandemic and save more lives.
Phase 1 construction started last April 1 by Prime BMD — a construction firm under the Razon Group of Companies. This includes 116 beds for patients, two nurses’ stations, drywall partition wall, installation of the temporary furniture, and conversion of the facility common areas in the existing Ninoy Aquino Stadium at the RMSC.
Phase 2 of the project will commence on April 8, once final advice from the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Department of Health is given. Phase 2 will provide an additional 108 beds for patients at the RMSC, and is expected to be completed by the end of next week.
Bloomberry Resorts Corporation is immensely proud to be able to support Prime BMD and contribute to bayanihan in finding ways to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
