Wipro’s Covid-19 Hospital at Hinjewadi Pune continues to offer medical care to Covid patients since last year.
- Wipro Set up Covid Hospital at its Hinjewadi campus, Pune, in June 2020.
- Over 4700 patients have been admitted to the hospital run by the company.
- Everyone gets free treatment at the hospital.
Wipro-run Covid Hospital, set up last year, provides healthcare facilities to patients in need amid the second wave of Covid, proving deadlier than the previous one.
Last year, the company built a 450 bed Jumbo hospital on its Hinjewadi Campus, Pune, with the help of Zilla Parishad, and includes 150 oxygen, ten ventilator, and other ICU beds.
On a special note, the hospital run by a company with no medical field expertise treated thousands of Covid positive patients last year. According to a report, only five patients have succumbed due to Covid inside the hospital.
Fifteen doctors and 70 nurses run the hospital, and around 4700 patients have been admitted to the hospital.
Ayush Prasad, CEO of Zilla Parishad, said that people from other districts are willing to come to Wipro Covid-19 hospital. The publicity of this hospital is from patients who have been treated here.
Wipro has provided every medical facility to the hospital like hospital beds, oxygen cylinders, ICU equipment, etc. The most important thing is that treatment at the hospital is free of cost.
Last year, top officials of Wipro met Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thakarey to discuss the plan, and soon after, the company announced to set up a hospital to provide healthcare facilities in the Covid-19 outbreak.
Hariprasad Hegle, Senior VP and Global head operations, Wipro, said, “The company is trying to do a bit to serve people during the pandemic. The idea was not just to set up a medical facility but to run it well consistently.
