The donation includes multi-parameter monitors, a central monitoring station, remote modules, an ECG, a defibrillator, intensive care hospital beds, perfusors, pulse oximeters and an X-ray digitalization system. The equipment worth BGN 61,000 has already been delivered to the Galabovo Hospital and complements the system for monitoring patients, ambulance equipment, mobile device for lung radiographs, etc. donated at the end of 2020.

“I would like to express my gratitude to ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP for their consistent actions in support of the hospital and this donation. The company’s contribution is extremely important to us because it makes us feel more confident, secure and at ease in the care we provide for our patients. The new equipment will improve the diagnosis, treatment and transportation of patients and will significantly increase our response readiness to complicated situations,” said Dr. Gosho Grozev, director of Galabovo Hospital.

ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP donated a respirator for intensive care for patients in the hospital in the town of Galabovo as part of the project. The life-sustaining equipment worth over BGN 39,000 was delivered this September. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the company has repeatedly donated protective clothing and supplies, disinfectants and rapid tests to the hospital. Thanks to ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP, the hospital’s oxygen system has also been completely overhauled and upgraded to provide reliable care for patients in need of oxygen therapy.

We are aware of the challenges facing our neighbors in the Multi-profile hospital for active treatment – Galabovo. The municipal hospital annually treats over 3300 patients and is the only one with a Covid-19 ward in the Maritsa East complex. As a responsible neighbor, even before the beginning of the autumn COVID wave, we coordinated with the management of the hospital how we can help the medics and the community. We immediately started working on the purchase of the necessary medical equipment for the preparedness of the medical specialists and managed to acquire it in the shortest possible time. We have a real chance to go this ordeal only if we stand together, united in purpose and strength, said Nadia Sinigerska-Bohorova, Communications and CSR Manager.
