The Gozo General Hospital is the only hospital on the island of Gozo, providing both inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical services. The hospital is equipped with an emergency service and is connected with hospitals on mainland Malta with an air ambulance service.
Faced with the pandemic, Steward Health Care Malta invested heavily in getting the hospital COVID-19-ready with extensive upgrades to its equipment. The works involved doubling the capacity of various wards, as well as rebuilding wards to be able to receive and treat COVID-19 patients effectively, while keeping the staff, other patients and the rest of the hospital safe and protected. Tektraco installed new gas distributions and around 60 medical gas outlets to cater for these new bed spaces. Apart from the increased bed capacity, the hospital underwent a major upgrad of its Oxygen, Vacuum and Medical Air supplies, and Tektraco supplied and installed the new medical vacuum plant, new medical air plant and an oxygen control panel.
