The number of COVID-19 cases are still growing at a staggering rate and the need for more beds, labs, offices, and even storage has never been greater or more immediate. A temporary building or modular structure is the best way to add effective, safe, affordable capacity to healthcare facilities. So, why aren’t more facilities using them?
Maybe administrators, procurement professionals, or even medical staff don’t really understand the kind of support temporary or modular medical buildings really provide. Whatever the reason, we’re seeing too many tent cities pop-up outside emergency rooms across the country. The fact is, our modular construction capabilities are ideally suited to help relieve the pressure being exerted on the medical industry today.
We’ve watched as hospital beds filled past capacity in major cities throughout China and Italy. Now our cities, like New York, Detroit, New Orleans, and others, confront the same challenge.
The difference between the U.S. and Europe is that American businesses, like VESTA, have ready-made solutions to address this shortage. In fact, we’re readying modular buildings for medical use that can be shipped anywhere, anytime. You can read more about that here.
Here are the top four aspects of temporary buildings that hospital and medical facility administrators need to understand to know these structures can meet and exceed their requirements.
Our portable temporary buildings deploy immediately, with more than 3,000 prefabricated modular units across the country are ready to ship today. They stack and install like legos, can meet your specific building codes, and are located in all 50 states to trim delivery time.
Some hospitals have resorted to using tents and pole or canvas structures to meet the demand for medical space. CBS2 in Chicago reported last week: “Tents are becoming a new fixture outside hospital emergency rooms. It’s the new reality in the time of the coronavirus pandemic.”
There are obvious reasons why you would want your temporary buildings to be more structurally sound than a tent. But the most important reason to use real, modular medical buildings over tents is the ability provide your staff and patients with a controlled environment for better care.
Our medical buildings can be equipped with state of the art HVAC systems and air filtration to keep medical practitioners and patients safe. On top of air quality, a sealed building makes proper sanitization practices achievable.
Meteorologists predict increased rainfall and record flooding this year. Something a lot of temporary structures are not equipped to handle.
Leasing or buying a temporary, modular building ensures that your patients, staff members, and medical equipment can remain safe and secure. Wind and other weather related events shouldn’t have to be a concern.
Flexible leasing conditions and the market cost of renting a modular building are quite affordable. Your staff, doctors, and patients can use a built-to-code, temporary medical building without putting finances at risk. When the pandemic ends we’ll remove the building so you only pay for what you need.
