The challenges faced during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic due to shortage of beds and oxygen concentrators, cannot be forgotten by any. To avoid any such potential crisis, we at Delhi Airport have joined hands with Medanta Hospital and set up an exclusive Covid Care Centre at the Delhi Airport.
The state-of-the-art facility, set up at Terminal 2 is aimed at benefiting GMR employees and their family members, including children who are feared to be impacted by the third wave of the pandemic. This healthcare centre will help isolate, clinically treat, clinically support asymptomatic, mild and mild to moderate Covid positive employees of GMR or their family members, till they are transferred to a hospital or discharged to their homes.
Managed by DIAL under the medical supervision of Medanta Hospital, the arrangement is such that DIAL will handle day-to-day operational issues, while Medanta will provide all medical support to this centre, including supervision of medical personnel, treatment protocols, patient care, support for pathology, microbiology and radiology, emergency evacuation and admission of critically ill patients at their facility, etc.
A total of 15 Paediatric High Dependency Unit (HDU) beds, 18 Adult HDU beds and 52 Isolation beds have been allotted at this centre along with 85 oxygen concentrators. With AI based cameras installed for monitoring, all the activities inside the centre, along with all other medical equipment for HDU and Isolation beds as per industry best practices.
