A pressure swing adsorption (PSA) oxygen plant was inaugurated at Guru Teg Bahadur (GTB) Sahib Charitable Hospital here by Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar and Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu.

Speaking at the function, Varinder Kumar said during the Covid-19 pandemic, oxygen requirement in healthcare facilities went up several folds and as a necessary preventive measure, hospitals were directed to have their own oxygen plants.

“I was convinced of the genuine services being rendered to poor and needy patients in Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Charitable Hospital and helped in getting the NGO Actgrant to establish one such plant in this institution,” said the DC.

He lauded the selfless and dedicated care given to patients during the second wave of the pandemic, which included highly subsidised clinical care and free medicines to those patients who could not afford the expensive Covid-19 drugs.

Dr Praveen C Sobti, Medical Director of the institute, said their mission is to deliver competent, compassionate and affordable care to all patients.
