FITTS Manufactures Level 1 Screening and Level 2 Triage COVID-19 Treatment Facilities

SC Company committed to designing and manufacturing COVID-19 treatment rooms for hospitals nationwide

As hospitals struggle to find solutions for expected overcrowding from COVID-19 outbreaks over the next few weeks, FITTS is allocating all resources necessary to quickly provide custom-designed Level 1 Screening and Level 2 Triage rooms for medical systems nationwide.   FITTS is heavily investing in the development and deployment of COVID-19 treatment facilities.

“Our country is in crisis management mode with this pandemic.  We at FITTS have an opportunity to provide a solution that could save lives nationwide and provide jobs for South Carolinians at a time when many are out of work.  I am committing this company and every resource we have to that mission.  I believe it is my responsibility to act anytime I have the ability to do so, and that is exactly what I am doing.”  Steve Fitts, CEO of FITTS.

The first building entering production is a 16ft by 50ft facility with 4 treatment rooms.  All rooms are directly accessible from outside the building so patients avoid waiting rooms.  Treatment rooms have ground level entry for ease of access by all populations.  HVAC systems and running water provide a more sanitary environment for medical staff and patients.  Buildings are fully customizable for individual needs, from layout to materials.
The building could be operational within a few hours of arriving on-site as all finishes are complete, and utilities run inside the building before it leaves the FITTS facility.  Once the contractor makes the final connections at the site, the building will be ready for business.  Standard treatment room packages can be sent to FITTS for installation before shipping.  Security and IT personnel can install equipment in the FITTS facility before shipment as well, so when it arrives, everything is complete.  FITTS can also make custom  furniture pieces as requested by a client.
Buildings are made in modules then set in place with a crane.  Facilities can be as large or as small as the situation requires.   Redeploying buildings as needs shift is a viable option.  Once the COVID-19 crisis is resolved, facilities can be sold or repurposed.  Options for future use include temporary treatment rooms during construction projects, small footprint community clinics,  or specialized centers in high-density areas such as dialysis in assisted living communities.
