This new temporary 370-bed hospital facility, which opens this week, looks to improve the healthcare which is available to patients throughout the province.
Laboratorios Maverick, one of the main national suppliers of hygiene and personal care products, has made a large donation of essential products to help in this fight against the coronavirus.
Laboratorios Maverick, a company specialised in developing and manufacturing hygiene and personal care products, with plants in Ulldecona (Tarragona) and San Fernando de Henares (Madrid), wanted to play its part in the country’s fight against the Covid-19 epidemic and it has done so through a considerable donation of essential hygiene products. Specifically we are talking about a shipment of more than 21,000 units, which were sent on Friday the 17th of April to the La Fe de Valencia Field Hospital; a temporary facility which will be opened in the coming days.
With this altruistic action, Laboratorios Maverick wanted to help to improve the material conditions in which the healthcare workers are working in their fight against coronavirus, while also giving all of those who form part of our country’s healthcare service and who are helping the people who have been affected by Covid-19, day after day, the recognition that they deserve.
“In light of the extraordinary situation that our country is currently facing, Laboratorios Maverick would like to help all of the healthcare staff who have been working passionately to provide their services throughout this crisis, and that is why we have collaborated by sending 21,650 essential products, because #THISNEEDNOTSTOP and the only way we will get through this is if we work together and pull in the same direction with a common goal” explains Pedro Pérez, General Director of Laboratorios Maverick.
The La Fe de Valencia Field Hospital which will be in use as of this week, will admit coronavirus patients with mild or moderate symptoms and who have progressed well over the last eight days. The infrastructure will be installed at least until the end of the year and it boasts a total of 370 beds, 29% more than its usual capacity.
Laboratorios Maverick is a leading company specialising in the development and manufacturing of innovative and sustainable personal hygiene and care products, and it has formed part of Grupo Ubesol (with headquarters in Adzaneta de Albaida, Valencia) since 2006. The company’s commitment to R&D&I is reflected in its recruitment of more than 70 specialist professionals with experience in leading multi-national companies.
These highly qualified professionals with proven track records have made it possible for Laboratorios Maverick to improve both the quality and competitiveness of its products, leading it to become one of Spain’s main suppliers in its sector. Fully aware of its social responsibilities, Laboratories Maverick has taken additional steps to be able to maintain its production and avoid any product shortages during the current health crisis.
Laboratorios Maverick has stepped up its commitment to sustainability, and it now forms part of the Global Compact Network Spain, sharing the United Nations initiative to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by minimising or eliminating the impact of its activities by reducing, reusing and recycling. Proof of this lies in the fact that the extrusion plant which is located in Ulldecona produces more than 100 million PET bottles, which are 100% recyclable, and a large proportion of the bottles have been produced from recycled plastic. Likewise, it is developing a wide portfolio of sustainable products, which will be available in 2020, some of which meet all of the requirements for Cosmos Certification.
