Doing our part to help during the COVID-19 pandemic…
During this current pandemic, MBF Commercial has been working with LST Projects to help create a new cancer care ward at Southampton Hospital. All of the team at MBF are proud of their involvement in the project, and continuing to deliver our services throughout the pandemic.
The new Cancer Care Ward (C2) was delivered ahead of schedule, & will accommodate 27 inpatients. This includes 11 single-bed side rooms with enhanced ventilation for those who are immuno-suppressed, which will allow more patients to undergo bone marrow transplant treatments that require isolating for several weeks.
A quote from consultant haematologist Matthew Jenner:
“The opening of C2 will make a huge difference especially for patients with haematological conditions such as leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma and sickle cell disease. The number of patients we have with these conditions increases year on year and having more inpatient beds will enable patients to be treated promptly, within specialist facilities and cared for by a skilled team of highly trained doctors and nurses.”
