Filinvest City Foundation is boosting its efforts to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic by converting The Filinvest Tent into We Heal As One quarantine facility. The recently turned over facility houses 108 beds for patients that are asymptomatic or with mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms.
This initiative, which aims to decongest hospitals attending to patients afflicted with the coronavirus, was made possible with the partnership of Filinvest City Foundation, EEI Corporation and Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) and with the support of Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Department of Health (DOH), Department of National Defense (DND), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). Nexgen Asia, PLDT, SMART, Vista Land and Meralco also helped in making this quarantine facility more conducive for patients and frontliners.
