Transform Hospital Group joins UK-wide alliance with National Healthservice (NHS) to mitigate impact of Covid-19
London, 24 March 2020 – The Transform Hospital Group Limited, an AURELIUS Equity Opportunities (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) portfolio company, has signed an arrangement with the National Health Service (NHS) making its 3 nationwide hospitals and 23 clinics available for the UK’s fight against Covid-19.
These facilities, staffed by c. 100 healthcare professionals, will not only treat patients infected with Covid-19, but also assist with urgent surgeries and treatments. The Transform Hospital group will be reimbursed at cost and will thus not profit from its arrangement with the NHS.
Tony Veverka, CEO of the Transform Hospital Group, said: “We are dealing with a global health crisis on a previously unseen scale. The Transform Hospital Group is pleased to be able to support the NHS and its dedicated staff in the fight against the Covid-19 virus, putting all our facilities and resources into helping as many patients as possible to recover.”
Dirk Markus, CEO of AURELIUS Equity Opportunities, said: “Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures. In this time of great uncertainty, it is vital that we’re standing together. We therefore support the swift transformation of Transform Medical and Hospital and Clinics into NHS hospitals treating patients suffering from Covid-19.”
The collaboration between the Transform Hospital Group and the NHS will commence with immediate effect.
