Ambassador J. Randolph Evans visited the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg field hospital, hosted by Director Romain Nati, with Defense Coordinator Gilles Feith and General Alain Duschène of the Defense Directorate and Luxembourg Army; Peter Dohmen from the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA); and Laurent Bodson, General Manager of the Warehouse Services Agency facility in Sanem.
This hospital was made possible through the support of CHL, the Lëtzebuerger Arméi, the NSPA who mobilized the equipment in less than 24 hours and coordinated the transport and construction of the facility, and the U.S. Airforce located at Ramstein Airforce Base, who provided power generators and refrigeration units from the WSA materiel depot. The field hospital provides a triage area for patients as well as laboratory tests and X-rays.
The Ambassador was honored to visit the hardworking individuals in the emergency facility and the hospital who are fighting against COVID-19 to thank them for their work.
“The frontline health care workers here at the Centre Hospitalier and health care facilities worldwide are shining examples of human compassion and strength, and I join all Luxembourgers in my sincere gratitude for their tireless efforts. The important work being done at this facility once again proves the strength and worth of the continued cooperation of Luxembourg, the United States, and our NATO Allies. United together, we will prevail over COVID-19.” -Ambassador Evans
