The increasing number of COVID 19 cases in Coimbatore has resulted in a large number of people requiring hospitalisation at Government Hospital, Coimbatore. The DRO had requested CREDAI Coimbatore to set up a COVID Care Centre so that recovered patients can move over to a step-down facility with Oxygen support.
Accordingly, CREDAI Coimbatore has worked on a war footing and has created a first-of-its-kind facility with 200 oxygen beds at the Government Arts College Campus. Each bed has been provided with piped oxygen facility. The same has been put up by CREDAI Coimbatore at a cost of Rs 2 Crores along with support from various sponsors. CMC Hospital will provide the Doctors and Medicare for the same. The proximity of the campus to the hospital makes it an ideal location.
