Jalandhar, April 10
The Jalandhar district administration on Saturday assured best possible assistance to all 55 private hospitals in Covid-care management by ensuring better coordination between all authorities and other stakeholders.
Participating in a virtual review meeting convened by the Health Department, ADC Vishesh Sarangal said around 25 per cent of the private Covid care institutions of the state belong to Jalandhar district and the administration was extending fulsome support in their day to day operations.
He said these hospitals have arranged as many as 1,200 beds for patients of level-II and level-III categories, adding that he apprised the authorities about the steps being taken by administration for providing quality treatment to patients across the facilities.
The ADC said the administration had already extended a helping hand to these institutions by providing free-of-cost ventilators, oxygen, and other assistance. He mentioned that special nodal officers have also been appointed to ensure smooth coordination between these institutions, and the Health Department and the district administration.
Sarangal lauded the role of private Covid care institutions in tacking the first wave besides expressing hope to combat the second one on similar lines. He said the administration would leave no stone unturned to tackle this pandemic as concerted efforts were being made at war-footing. He urged all stakeholders to make vigorous efforts in winning this ongoing battle against the virus.
Meanwhile, the private healthcare institutions also hailed the assistance and efforts being made by the Jalandhar administration in the war against Covid-19. Expressing satisfaction, some of the institutions categorically mentioned that the district administration was making all-out efforts to contain the spread in Jalandhar.
