We have also engaged a leading healthcare provider Aspen Medical to further assist with the development of our own enhanced protocol and procedures. Founded in 2003, Aspen Medical is an Australian-owned global provider of healthcare services.
The company managed elements of the response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014-2015 on behalf of four separate national governments – Australia, New Zealand, the US and the UK. Aspen Medical is the only commercial organisation in the world to be certified by the World Health Organization as an Emergency Medical Team for infectious disease outbreaks. Aspen Medical has been central to the Australian Government’s response to COVID-19 having established 150 respiratory clinics, procured PPE for the national stockpile, developed online training platforms, provided surge teams to Aged Care facilities and managed land-based quarantine for Australian citizens returning from overseas that were required to self-isolate for 14-days. Internationally, the company has provided land-based and off-shore quarantine for the cruise industry, managing mobile health facilities in Canada and the US and is providing healthcare staff in the UAE.
