SM Foundation delivered several intensive care unit-grade ventilators to medical institutions in the country in a bid to support the full recovery of COVID-19 patients.
It distributed ventilators to the Philippine General Hospital, Lung Center of the Philippines, Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital and San Lazaro Hospital.
SM also provided ICU-grade ventilator units to West Visayas State University Medical Center in Iloilo and Baguio General Hospital.
The provision of much needed ICU-grade ventilators will help many patients in critical care.
The donation forms part of P170 million in allocations pledged by SM Foundation to help front liners and medical institutions nationwide in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak.
