Teams to Focus on Providing Global Emergency Healthcare Response
GALVESTON, TX - February 27, 2021 - SLSCO, Ltd. (SLS) recently announced the development of SLS Heath, a company division dedicated to providing global emergency healthcare response.
Over the past year, SLS has delivered comprehensive COVID-19 related sheltering and medical services across the nation. They have provided care for thousands of families and individuals in New York, Massachusetts, Florida, and Texas in response to the pandemic.
“SLS has always looked for opportunities to help communities respond in the face of natural disaster,” remarked SLS president, William Sullivan. “COVID-19 brought a unique set of challenges and SLS Health has risen to provide shelter and medical services in a great time of need. Our new Health Division will place a greater emphasis on medical staffing and operations, positioning SLS for future growth in the healthcare sector.”
Since March 2020, SLS has constructed and operated ten sheltering and medical Alternate Care Sites (ACS) across Florida, Massachusetts, New York, and Texas, with bed capacities up to 1,100+ and a total of 2800+ beds to date. SLS constructed three COVID-19 testing facilities throughout New York City, including a community-based testing center in the Bronx to serve local residents, as well as Riverside and Chelsea Health Center labs to facilitate sample testing.
Additionally, SLS has constructed two COVID-19 mAb infusion treatment and immunization facilities in Texas (El Paso and Harlingen) in light of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This EUA permits the emergency use of multiple monoclonal antibody (mAb) therapies for the treatment of mild to moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in adults and pediatric patients with positive results of direct SARS-CoV-2 viral testing who are 12 years of age and older weighing at least 40 kg, and who are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19 and/or hospitalization.
Most recently, SLS teams developed a drive-through vaccination site in League City, Texas, and over 20 emergency medical services locations throughout Florida. The locations in Florida provided over 100,000 meals through four community feeding sites, feeding 450-700 meals a day/per site. They also constructed and supported five drive-through testing sites and 13 walk-up sites administering 400-750 tests per day/per site.
SLS Health and SLS Response, two closely aligned entities, will continue to support state and local governments by building and operating temporary COVID-19 hospitals, testing sites, and treatment/prevention centers.
