THE HPA HEALTH GROUP HAS PROPOSED THE HOSPITAL DE SÃO GONCALO IN LAGOS FOR THE TREATMENT OF THE CORONAVIRUS
To face the present Coronavirus Pandemic and also to collaborate within the National Health System in the Region of the Algarve, the HPA Health Group will be preparing its hospital in Lagos - the Hospital de Sao Goncalo - to receive infected coronavirus patients in need of hospital admission.
This availability was communicated to the Director of the National Health System. This measure will serve to alleviate the public sector as well as its professionals. Other support connected with its other hospitals in the Algarve was also proposed.
We wish to collaborate with the national effort to contain this pandemic and to minimize all its effects, informs the HPA Health Group. From this moment the Hospital de Sao Goncalo will be dedicated exclusively to COVID 19 patients, with its 14 isolation rooms and 4 beds in Intensive Care.
Due to its location this unit will complement the available facilities of the NHS in the Western Algarve, by accepting this region's suspected cases and also those detected by the Emergency Units of the HPA Health Group. The HPA has already last week announced and put in place its contingency plan, with specific circuits and defined procedures to avoid contamination by triage units in the exterior of each hospital. Also available is advanced medical support teams for immediate life support if needed. Simultaneously the HPA Health Group have organized a Teleconsultation System. We cannot let our patients feel that they have been abandoned, as everyone is already extremely worried and scared with the present situation. We have to therefore make available the necessary medical care for critical patients, patients needing continued monitoring and also all those patients that might need our medical attention for other reasons. All efforts will make a difference. It is important for everyone to focus on what is essential: to combat this pandemic.
Alterations of working hours of all the HPA Health Units and of visiting hours.
Considering the latest development of the COVID 19 Pandemic, the HPA Health Group has decided on the following procedures:

After 6pm today visiting In-Patients will not be allowed. The only exception is visits to the Pediatric In-Patient Unit. Only one parent will be allowed to remain with the child, and only the same parent, who must remain in hospital with the child until discharge.
Only one person may accompany the patient to the Emergency Unit if under the age of 18 or if handicapped.
Visitors are not allowed in the Maternity Unit.
The HPA Health Group wishes to thank all concerned for everyones understanding and collaboration.
Only together will we be in a position to overcome this difficult situation which we are all facing .
