Prime Minister Narendra Modi orders setting up of 551 oxygen plants in hospitals from PM Cares fund

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ordered setting up of 551 oxygen plants inside government hospitals across the country. PM CARES Fund will provide financial aid in setting up these plants. Mr Modi also ordered the concerned authorities to make these plants functional as soon as possible.

Prime Minister’s Office said, in line with Mr Modi’s direction to boost availability of oxygen to hospitals, PM CARES Fund has approved allocation of funds for the installation of 551 dedicated Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) Medical Oxygen Generation Plants inside public health facilities.

The PMO said, these plants will be established in identified government hospitals in district headquarters in various States and Union Territories. The PMO said that such an in-house captive oxygen generation facility will address the day-to-day medical oxygen needs of these hospitals and the district.

In addition, the liquid medical oxygen (LMO) will serve as a “top up” to the captive oxygen generation. Such a system will go a long way in ensuring that government hospitals in the districts do not face sudden disruption of oxygen supplies and have access to adequate uninterrupted oxygen supply to manage the COVID-19 patients and other patients needing such support, Prime Minister’s Office said.
