In a new spirit of solidarity, RadiciGroup and Atalanta, two Bergamo-based companies, have decided to support the temporary field hospital that the National Association of Italian Alpine Soldiers is building on the premises of Bergamo trade fair in response to the Coronavirus emergency.
In a statement, RadiciGroup and Atalanta said they will contribute by purchasing all the necessary oxygen supply equipment for 200 hospital beds for Covid-19 patients.
“We have decided to take part in this project – RadiciGroup and Atalanta announced in a joint statement – because it embodies the ‘made in Bergamo’ spirit at its best. The Alpine soldiers (famous for their hard work), are one of the symbols of the Bergamo province, which traditionally values work. It is an initiative that comes from this territory destined to this territory, and for this reason we proudly want to be part of it”.
The project is coordinated by the Accademia del Tennis per la Solidarietà - the Academy of Sports for Solidarity, a charity association that has already provided the Hospital “Bolognini” of Seriate, near Bergamo, with a mobile HR-CT with the support of fifteen local companies, including RadiciGroup and Atalanta.
This HR-CT is essential for diagnostic in-depth analyses for patients showing breathing problems related to the Covid-19. In this way, the new temporary field hospital will take some pressure away from the hospitals of Bergamo, that are currently overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of patients requiring supportive treatment.
