The unique mobile healthcare solution based at Victoria Memorial Hospital will offer community-based dialysis to patients in Welshpool.
It was created by linking four 13.6m medical trailers together to reveal a high-quality six-bed ward and two private isolation rooms for patients to be treated.
At the showcase event, industry professionals and dialysis patients and their families were given a short presentation and tour of the high-tech mobile medical unit.
EMS Healthcare's Chief Executive Officer, Keith Austin said: “We are immensely proud to show off this state-of-the art mobile medical unit to patients and clients - the feedback we received at the open day was excellent. Liberty Quad is a fantastic example of the quality environments we can create using mobile medical units.”
Patient comments included: “This renal unit is incredible, it has the look and feel of normal ward, now it’s here it will save so much travelling time in the future.”
