Instituto Mário Penna pays tribute to FIEMG in gratitude for the partnership in the construction of beds in Covid

Instituto Mário Penna is very proud of its partners and makes a point of recognizing who is present in its mission, helping with the treatment of patients and contributing to the institution’s structural and technological improvements. At this time of pandemic, the Federation of Industries of the State of Minas Gerais (FIEMG) spared no effort so that the institution could expand cancer care to also serve patients affected by Covid-19. To register this gratitude, a plaque was placed in the Espaço Benfeitoria Mário Penna – a wall with homage to donors and contributors who are part of the institution’s 50-year history.

This Monday, June 14, the president of FIEMG, Flávio Roscoe, was at Instituto Mário Penna to monitor the insertion of the plaque and the inauguration of the new CTI Covid facilities at Hospital Luxemburgo.

Currently, the Instituto Mário Penna has 300 beds in total, 29 in the ICU and 60 in the infirmary. With this new FIEMG partnership, also involving other donors, it was possible to implement 9 more ICU beds and 20 in the infirmary.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic caused by Covid-19, the productive sector has been working to help mitigate its impacts on society. We understand that it was necessary to support the state’s health units, as we knew that there was not the necessary number of beds for the treatment of patients”, said Flávio Roscoe, president of FIEMG, thanking, on behalf of the entire industrial sector, the honor received. .

Also present and honored for supporting the Mário Penna Institute, Diego Andrade, Federal Deputy, Leader of the PSD National Bank, Majority Leader in the Federal Chamber and Active Member of the Parliamentary Front for Combating Cancer; Ciro Pereira, Councilor and President of the International Affairs Committee of the Municipality of Belo Horizonte; Laila Katina, Superintendent of Union Relations at FIEMG and Felipe Mota, Consul of Mexico.

Councilor Ciro Pereira thanked the opportunity to unite the two initiatives that made the beds viable. “When I looked for President Flávio Roscoe, he was ready to provide more structure to confront Covid, in which Mário Penna is the protagonist in the capital”. The councilor also spoke of the perspective of the Chamber approving amendments to the budgets to councilors and that he has already assumed that part of it will be allocated to the Institute.

“This partnership with FIEMG brings us even closer to society and our responsibilities as a philanthropic institution. We were only able to become one of the largest patient care hospitals with Covid because we had this important support. It is a very important moment in the history of Instituto Mário Penna and we just have to thank you for your trust and support in our work”; highlights Marco Antônio Viana Leite, CEO of Instituto Mário Penna.
