Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan dedicates 114 bedded COVID Care facility in Bhilai Steel Plant of SAIL in Chhattisgarh

Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today dedicated 114 bedded COVID Care facility in Bhilai Steel Plant of SAIL in Chhattisgarh. This hospital is equipped with gaseous oxygen and has been set up after laying a pipeline of 1.5 Kilometre for supply of gaseous oxygen from the plant. This is the first phase of this project which aims to scale up to reach a total of 500 oxygenated beds in the subsequent two more phases.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Pradhan said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given the mantra of ‘Jahan Bimaar, Wahi Upchaar’ and setting up hospitals near the source of gaseous oxygen is another step towards that vision. Lauding the role of Bhilai Steel Plant during COVID times, he said that its hospital has played an important role in treating patients during the second wave of the COVID-19 and also played an important role in supplying liquid medical oxygen in the country.

The second wave of COVID-19 led to a sudden and sharp surge in oxygen demand. The Minister said, the steel plants rose to the occasion and met the nation’s requirement even at the cost of reducing their production.
