Medical equipment in a hospital

 

  • The medical equipment is worth more than 1.1 million euros and was delivered to the health authorities of the two regions to help in their fight against the pandemic
  • The donation is part of Endesa's Social Responsibility plan against Covid-19, endowed with 25 million euros

Endesa has donated a state-of-the-art CT scanner to the Miguel Servet hospital in Zaragoza and ten portable X-ray machines to the Andalusian Health Service and the health authorities of Aragon to help them in their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The medical equipment donated by Endesa is worth more than 1.1 million euros and will speed up the diagnostic tests carried out on patients in the two regions.

The EVO CT scanner from General Electric Healthcare provides high-resolution images with low doses of radiation and allows CT scans to be performed on more than 60 patients a day. This latest generation equipment, valued at 310,000 euros, offers up to an 82% reduction in the dose of radiation compared to previous technologies.

In addition to the CT scanner for the Miguel Servet hospital, Endesa will donate two General Medical Merate GMM Mac 32D portable X-ray machines, valued at 97,600 euros, to the Obispo Polanco Hospital in Teruel and Ernest LLuch Hospital in Calatayud.

Eight General Electric Healthcare XR 240 portable X-ray machines, valued at 704,000 euros, will also be delivered to the Andalusian Health Service in the next few days. These are high-resolution portable X-ray machines that runs on internal batteries. Their mobility makes them especially useful in emergency situations such as the one we are currently experiencing, since it allows them to be used with patients who cannot be taken to the radiology department.

These donations are part of the Endesa's Public Responsibility Plan 25 million euros donated to alleviate the greatest needs created by the health crisis. Among the actions in this Plan is the delivery of more than 2.3 million masks to the health authorities of the central government and the Autonomous Communities and various social organizations, and more than one hundred latest-generation respirators.

Endesa is also offering free supplies to medicalized hotels and to Hall 7 of the Fira de Barcelona, which has been fitted out to care for the homeless, and provides all the necessary resources so that the field hospitals can guarantee a constant supply of electricity during this crisis.

Endesa's Social Responsibility Plan is also giving donations to a number of institutions and NGOs to help to combat the social effects of the crisis amongst the most vulnerable and to research new drugs to deal with COVID-19. Endesa has donated 500,000 euros to the Red Cross to contribute to the Red Cross Responds to the Crisis programme, 300,000 euros to the Barcelona Food Bank and 200,000 euros to the Advanced Centre for Scientific Research (CSIC) for the development of drugs and antibody detection tests.

The company has also donated 2.5 million euros to the health authorities of the Community of Madrid, the Generalitat of Catalonia and the municipalities of Madrid and Barcelona.

The Endesa Foundation  has also launched several initiatives to help to alleviate the effects of the pandemic, such as the manufacture of protective visors using 3D printers from the Retotech project, and has made donations of 270,000 euros to the Safa Foundation in Andalusia, 100,000 euros to Cáritas and 45,000 euros to the Integra Foundation.

Endesa has also promised during this state of alarm not to cut off supplies to customers in the residential sector because of non-payment and is making conditions more flexible for SMEs, the self-employed and families in need, by analysing the requests from customer companies case-by-case and ensuring immediate payments to the suppliers of the service and sales channels.
