One among the India’s largest chain of private healthcare network started admissions of Covid-19 patients. The treatment will be made available in specially designated isolation wards of their hospitals – East block of Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket and Max Super Speciality Hospital, Patparganj. Apart from this, the diagnostic facility of hospital Max Labs– will also begin testing for COVID-19 for samples collected from four units across Delhi-NCR. However, the testing samples will be collected at selective Max Hospitals – Saket, Gurgaon and Patparganj.

Apollo Hospital:

The Healthcare major on Monday said it has launched ‘Project Stay I’ with 500 rooms in select hotels across the country in the first phase with light medical supervision for quarantine. Joining hands with partners including HUL, SBI and OYO, Apollo Hospitals plans to scale this capacity to up to 5,000 rooms where patients can stay in isolation.

“Apollo along with their partners commits to add up to 5,000 rooms where patients can stay in isolation.

These will be 5,000 telemedicine medically supervised beds so that those who are in isolation stay in isolation and don’t spread the infection to others,” Apollo Hospitals Group Joint MD Sangita Reddy said.

The objective is to create isolation and quarantine facilities away from the main hospitals in cities across the country and reduce the burden on hospitals providing the acute care.

The model is scalable, replicable and uses technology of telemedicine effectively.
