Ten Mobile Hospitals

Ministry of Health, Peru

MCC London Limited delivered ten mobile hospitals to the Ministry of Health in Peru early in 2020. On 26th February 2020 the British trade envoy, Mark Menzies, MP, and British Ambassador to Peru, Kate Harrison, toured one of the newly installed mobile hospitals at the Hospital de Ciencias Neurologicas, La Victoria, Lima accompanied by MCC director David Vogel. One of the ten has also been installed at the Hipólito Unanue Hospital.

The Ministry of Health, Peru has installed one of the mobile hospitals at the Jorge Chavez Airport for use in the screening and treatment of incoming passengers for Coronavirus. CNN reported on this in their news item on 4th March 2020. The mobile hospitals were planned and designed
in the UK, built in Turkey and shipped to Peru for installation.

“MCC London is honoured to serve the People of Peru. We have provided 10 world class mobile facilities that are providing medical services to tens
of thousands, including fighting the corona virus. We designed, built and installed all 10 hospitals in 9 months – a remarkable achievement.

These hospitals are fully mobile yet provide a high level of medical treatment. We are proud that these hospitals have significantly improved the ability of Peru’s MOH to expand their reach and reduce their response time to health crises as they occur.”
said MCC London’s CEO, Terry Newman

The deployment of one of the ten Hospitals within Lima’s Airport to face the problem of incoming passengers and testing against COVID –19 was an
important part of the anti-virus campaign.

Subsequent units were deployed at stadiums and in other locations of greatest need throughout Peru. Peru was the first country in the region that installed a mobile hospital in the International airport to create a filter in the entrance to the country.
