UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or the “Company”), the region’s leading Asset Management and Infrastructure Solutions company, in its continuous support to the Malaysian Government towards national recovery efforts, had recently engaged with MERCY Malaysia to provide biomedical equipment and operational supplies to Kudat Hospital under the Sabah MATCH Hub COVID-19 Emergency Relief Project.
Focusing on the Company’s areas of expertise in biomedical equipment and healthcare technology, UEM Edgenta will be donating hospital equipment and essentials in the form of vital sign monitors, syringe pumps, stethoscopes and disinfection wipes to Kudat Hospital to support the front liners’ medical operations and logistics to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in Sabah. UEM Edgenta anticipates the equipment to be ready for deployment this month.
The contributions were presented by Dr. Nik Fawaz Nik Abdul Aziz, Head, Healthcare Support (Concession), UEM Edgenta / Managing Director, Edgenta Mediserve Sdn. Bhd., who represented the Company to Yang Mulia Raja Datin Riza Shazmin Raja Badrul Shah, Vice- President II of MERCY Malaysia at a handover ceremony at MERCY Malaysia’s headquarters earlier today.
“We are delighted to extend our assistance by providing medical supplies as well as essentials to the hospital. We hope our contribution will alleviate the operational burdens of the healthcare workers and front liners as they relentlessly protect and save lives every day. Here at UEM Edgenta, we will continue to support hospitals and front liners throughout this difficult period,” said Dr. Nik Fawaz, at the event.
He continued to add that under the Sabah MATCH Hub COVID-19 Emergency Relief Project, in addition to the biomedical equipment, the Company is also contributing to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society for the deployment of medical professionals and logistics support of medical deliveries.
