Opy Health, the first integrated platform of infrastructure assets and non-medical services in the Brazilian healthcare sector, and Banco da Amazônia (BASA) joined efforts to donate two oxygen plants to the state of Amazonas that will be used by the healthcare system to serve municipalities in the countryside.
Sysadvance plants will be donated to help the state operate in remote and difficult-to-reach locations, especially regarding oxygen supply, which will leave an important legacy even after the pandemic. “Providing the clinical staff and the healthcare sector with excellent infrastructure and management to ensure quality service to patients is in our DNA. We have been operating in Manaus since the beginning of the pandemic and we know the importance of this donation”, says Otávio Silveira, CEO of Opy Health.
The new plants will be delivered to the State Government, through the State Division of Health (SES-AM), which will determine the cities and hospitals in the region that will receive the donation. The plants can jointly produce 873,600 liters of O2 per day, which can potentially supply 110 hospital beds on average. With their own plant, health facilities can ensure the continuous availability of O2, an essential medical supply to treat patients affected by the new coronavirus.
For BASA’s regional head in Amazonas, André Vargas, funding this project is not a commercial operation only. “This initiative will save lives in this difficult time we are going through. The Bank has supported all necessary conditions for the plant to start operating as soon as possible, as COVID-19 patients urgently need oxygen supply”.
