ARQUIMEA Medical, essential health partner in the final appointment of the Race to Costa del Sol

In a situation as complicated as the current one, the organization of the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open in Spain, the last event in the calendar of the Ladies European Tour to be held from November 26th to 29th at the Real Club de Golf Guadalmina, wanted to have the best specialists to guarantee the safety of the players, their caddies, their technical team and the personnel involved in the development of the tournament. That is why ARQUIMEA Medical, a company that develops and offers solutions that combine science and technology in the health sector, has joined the list of entities that collaborate in this event, the end of the season and of the Race to Costa del Sol.

Experience, knowledge, technology and reliability are some of the capabilities with which ARQUIMEA Medical will ensure the protection of those who participate or work in the tournament. The company leads the COVID-19 Alliance, a consortium of companies that includes certified diagnostic laboratories with extensive experience in PCR and ELISA diagnostics and research centers that advise on protocols and quality control processes. The work of ARQUIMEA Medical has been fundamental to establish these protocols in the Andalusia Costa del Sol Open in Spain, in order to have PCR available for all the staff that remains within the tournament bubble (players, caddies, coaches and the staff that comes into regular contact with them) and also for the members of the organization or the press that are considered as long-stay staff.

Of course, within the established measures, PCR tests and rapid antigen tests will also be carried out for the guests of the Pro-Am, visitors and the press whose attendance is more punctual, as well as establishing dedicated perimeters in the associated hotel facilities and in the clubhouse, and having a laboratory available during the whole week of the tournament to attend to any need that may arise.

Pilar de la Huerta, director of ARQUIMEA Medical, wanted to emphasize the importance for her company of being linked to a top-level international event and the measures that will be put in place to ensure the smooth running of the competition.

“At ARQUIMEA Medical we support all the initiatives that allow us to continue holding reference events in their sector, such as the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open in Spain, which promote and disseminate sport and high competition, as well as being a driving force for economic activity wherever they are held.  Our experience and knowledge allow us to establish the appropriate measures and protocols for the current situation from a health point of view, so that the tournament is held with the highest health security standards, so that both competitors, the public and other attendees can enjoy an exceptional week in one of the most emblematic places of international golf. We are enormously grateful to Deporte & Business for having counted on us for this mission, making us protagonists in such a special moment as this by showing the world the capacity of our country in the organization of this type of competition in a safe way for everyone.

For his part, Íñigo Aramburu, General Director of Deporte & Business, the company promoting the Andalcsia Costa del Sol Open in Spain, was very satisfied with the incorporation of ARQUIMEA Medical as a collaborator of the tournament.

“Just as we want to have the best players on the tournament staff, we are also looking to surround ourselves with the best specialists in the different areas related to its organization, and more so in such a delicate area as healthcare. Setting up a competition of these characteristics, especially in the current circumstances, means a great responsibility for all the parties involved, and having ARQUIMEA Medical as a health partner is fundamental”, Iñigo Aramburu recapitulated. “The security of the players and of all those who participate in the tournament is a priority for us, and the presence of ARQUIMEA Medical, with its experience in the elaboration of protocols of action related to the COVID-19, its knowledge and its technological solutions, gives us great peace of mind. We are going to be a worldwide reference in terms of the organization of great sports events in the Covid era”.
