|Expands Vaccination Services to Support Anti-epidemic Efforts |
HONG KONG, Feb 23, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - UMP Healthcare Holdings Limited ("UMP" or the "Group"; SEHK: 722) has announced that its affiliate, UMP Charity Foundation Limited (the "Charity Foundation"), will donate first batch of donation of HK$500,000 to support patients diagnosed with COVID-19 through the provision of free medical video consultation, or 'telemedicine' services and the expansion of the Sinovac vaccination service at the Group's medical centres. It is anticipated that at least 10,000 people in need will benefit from these services in the next month. An additional donation may be committed when needed.
|Telemedicine service allows patients to get the doctor's immediate advice without leaving home.|
As the number of new COVID-19 cases rapidly increases, patients with confirmed infections are stuck at home waiting for hospital admission or in isolation, and many elderly people, adults, and children urgently need medical consultations. UMP will provide free telemedicine services for relevant patients in response to current needs and the Hospital Authority's call to support anti-epidemic efforts. Patients who have been confirmed infections, preliminary infections or have self-tested positive using rapid antigen tests can register online for the service. A video consultation with a doctor will be arranged during designated service hours and they will be provided with any required medication if necessary. The consultation could help to alleviate patients' concern and enable them to receive treatment without leaving their home. Donations from the Charity Foundation will fully subsidise the costs of the consultation services, medicine and support for all related matters.
In addition, given the rapid increase of vaccination demand, 11 of the Group's medical centres are gearing up to support the Sinovac vaccination service. UMP will also set up an additional vaccination point at the UMP Wellness & Metabolic Centre in Central to provide extra services for seniors and children, who are considered priority groups for protection. There will be specialist doctors and registered nurses in attendance at the centre to evaluate those who wish to be vaccinated and confirm their recommendations. They will also answer questions and follow up with those who have received the vaccination, reducing anxiety and worries of those in need.
Dr. Sun Yiu Kwong, Chairman and CEO of UMP, and Director of UMP Charity Foundation, said, "UMP hopes to fulfil its responsibilities as a corporate and professional medical institution to help the public amid the severe epidemic in Hong Kong. Our medical team is also ready to do its best to reduce the pressure on the public medical system, provide support to those in need and have a positive impact on society. Meanwhile, we express our condolences to those affected by the epidemic and hope that our actions can provide immediate warmth."
Telemedicine service hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm, with limited service available in the evenings and Saturdays. To register, please visit https://bit.ly/3H2IzY8.
