Unlike its counterparts in England, named after Florence Nightingale, the Louisa Jordan Hospital takes its name from a Scottish nurse who served during the First World War. It is housed in the main hall of Scotlands largest exhibition centre, the SEC. The next door building, the SSE Hydro, provides storage for all the equipment required by the temporary critical care field unit.
Speaking from her bed, one patient, now well on the road to recovery, spoke of her experience of coronavirus: "I would like people to be very careful to protect themselves, to avoid contact, to take care, to believe what is being said, because it is all true. But I am recovering now, thanks to the wonderful medical team here.”
The Central Military Emergency University Hospital provides specialist medical assistance for civilians as well as military personnel and veterans. Medstor has supplied materials management equipment for several hospitals in the region, as part of Romanias ongoing investment in improving and developing its healthcare sector.

MEDSTOR PRESENTS TO LEADING GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL GROUP
The ASSMB runs the region's hospitals, which aim to offer to the same high standards of treatment that a patient could expect anywhere else in Europe. After many years of challenging financial and political instability, healthcare within the region of Bucharest is being positively supported by the ASSMB, and hospital numbers and standards are improving hugely in line with this increased attention. Medstor has already worked in Romania across all of the eight development regions, delivering materials management and logistics solutions to both the public and private healthcare environment. The Regina Maria Health Network and the military hospitals are leading the charge for reform, embracing all the smart solutions and human resources benefits on offer.
