HYDERABAD, Dec 12 (BNC Network) - Rotary Club of Secunderabad Sunrise in support with BHEL-GE today launched an ICU Ambulance to give free-of-cost serve to 50 plus Old Age Homes spread across the tri-cities of Hyderabad, Secunderabad and Cyberabad.
The Ambulance, procured at Rs 22 lakh, was handed over to Mahavir Hospital who will maintain and provide the free service
To mark the launch, Telangana Labour Minister Malla Reddy formally handed over the replica of the ambulance key to Motilalji Balghat, Chairman of Mahavir Hospital & Research Centre with whom Rotary Club entered an agreement for its maintenance and provide free service to the old age homes.
The Rs 22-lakh ICU Ambulance is equipped with all the lifesaving medical equipment required to handle emergency health care challenges while the patient is being shifted to the hospital.
It has become a challenge for these old age homes to arrange an ambulance in dire emergencies due to high costs and scattered locations of the hospitals.
Ambulance sponsors Lalit Sankrani, MD, and Prabhakar, CFO of BHEL-GE Gas Turbine Services (P) Ltd said, they took just ten seconds to decide and sponsor the ambulance because we were connected to the project as it is helping the elderly.
