Indore's Sevakunj Hospital to now operate as a COVID facility for asymptomatic patients!

Reportedly, Sevakunj Hospital in Indore will get a infrastructure facelift and a new oxygen plant.

In wake of the alarming rise in the number of coronavirus cases in Indore, District Collector Manish Singh on Tuesday, declared that the city's Sevakunj Hospital has now been converted into a COVID care centre. Located in the Kanadia area of Indore, this facility will primarily cater to the asymptomatic active caseload in the city and will be refurbished accordingly, to meet the patients' needs. Reportedly, a new oxygen plant and a power backup will also be set up here, to equip it better in the pandemic hour.

Indore's latest COVID facility

The District Collector has appointed officers, to look after the operations of this COVID-dedicated facility. He has further assigned the Chief Medical and Health Officer along with senior doctor, Madhav Hasani, and IDA CEO, Vivek Shotriya, as the monitoring authorities of the centre. Shortiya has also been assigned as the Nodal Officer at the facility, read reports. Besides other provisions, the centre will also have its own oxygen plant to provide its seamless supply to positive patients in dire need.

However, Mayank Sikarwar, Director of Sevakunj Hospital, has informed that it will take about three weeks to deliver and install the oxygen plant. Consequently, the facility will be able to provide oxygen support beds in a span of four weeks. Meanwhile, the administration has said that it will be providing 100 oxygen cylinders to the COVID care centre, which will open bed-vacancy for more critical patients here.

Until then, all asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic patients, that require medical assistance without oxygen support, can be admitted here. The 50-bed facility is admitting patients, starting today and more beds will be made available here, in a phased manner. All other medical nursing and food facilities can further be availed at this centre.
