The PortAventura Foundation is supporting the Spanish health system through the  challenging times of the coronavirus outbreak by donating 500,000 euros to purchase state-of-the-art respirators for hospitals in the province of Tarragona.

The money will be used to purchase respirators for seven hospitals in the province in an effort to help combat the spread of the virus. The respiratory machines will be installed in the Joan XXIII University Hospital of Tarragona, Sant Pau i Santa Tecla Hospital, Sant Joan University Hospital of Reus, Verge de la Cinta Hospital of Tortosa, Pius Hospital of Valls, Del Vendrell Hospital and Móra d’Ebre District Hospital.

Arturo Mas-Sarda, president of PortAventura World, commented: “In these exceptional times, at PortAventura World we want to dedicate all our efforts and contributions towards supporting the health system. We would also like to recognise and offer our appreciation for the great dedication and efforts of healthcare professionals, working in these hospitals and many others throughout Spain, who are fighting on the front line to combat the COVID-19 outbreak.”

Ramón Marsal, president of the PortAventura Foundation, added: “With this initiative, the PortAventura Foundation wants to demonstrate its complete willingness and its commitment to helping protect the community that it has been part of for many years and to which it is linked by a very special bond.”
