In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Fondazione Fiera Milano has made its Portello Pavilions 1 and 2 at Fieramilanocity available for the development of a pop-up hospital.
Special modules/containers will be set up inside the two pavilions, covering more than 25,000 square meters of area, and will then be equipped with beds for the care of patients affected by the Covid-19 emergency.
I feel that widespread knowledge of a project of this magnitude, which will be an example for many others around the world, is essential to gaining full awareness of the situation. Support for such an arduous mission is vital to the completion of a project that to many, even now, seems impossible
Developed in partnership with the Lombardy Region, the Fiera’s Covid-19 Intensive Care Hospital project provides for 250 hospital beds. It will be an actual hospital, offering the full spectrum of functions and services, a facility not only for the treatment of coronavirus patients, but one capable of treating all other related diseases.
The hospital is being built on the first two floors of the pavilion.
The construction process is divided into 3 phases to allow for immediate availability of some beds.
Phase 1 calls for the construction of four modules (each one made up of two critical care units and one ancillary services unit), actual hospital rooms, with a total of 53 beds with dedicated services and support areas for conducting all diagnostic and therapeutic activities on site. The first four units will be staffed by 186 doctors and nurses, along with 60 support personnel.
