Siemens said Monday it provided custom-built power distribution systems, air pressure monitoring equipment for patients and automation control technologies for each of the four tents at the 110-bed makeshift hospital.
The company noted that it worked with Haugland Energy and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct the temporary facility throughout a 21-day period.
Dave Hopping, president and CEO of the smart infrastructure segment at Siemensâ€™ U.S. arm, said the week-long completion of makeshift facility is a â€œtestament to the dedication of our employees, partners and suppliers.â€
Matt Martinez, technical director at Siemens Government Technologies, noted that SGT CEO and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient Tina Dolphâ€™s leadership has helped the company achieve project goals in a timely manner.
Siemensâ€™ other COVID-19 response efforts include the development and deployment of test kits, portable medical equipment, cloud-based infrastructure and remote monitoring systems for healthcare workers in the frontline.
