New Delhi: Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has donated two more ambulances to the city hospitals today, one each to the Institute of Nephro Urology (INU) situated at the Victoria Hospital campus and Sir C V Raman General Hospital (SCVRGH). “Considering the on-going pandemic, we are doing whatever we can to strengthen the health infrastructure,” says HAL’s CMD R Madhavan.
Earlier, HAL had donated two ambulances to Bowring & Lady Curzon Medical College & Research Institute (BLCMC&RI). All this is being done under Corporate Social Responsibility program, says HAL’s Director (HR) Alok Verma.
The handing over the event was held at HAL’s corporate office with the signing of an MoU between HAL represented by Ch.

On the occasion, HAL's Director (Finance) CB Anantha Krishnan, Director (Operations) MS Velpari, Chief Executive Officer (Bangalore Complex) Amitabh Bhatt, Executive Director (HR) HK Singh and other senior HAL officials were also present on the occasion.
The ambulances are equipped with facilities like air conditioning, basic life support system, analog oxygen delivery system, autoloader stretcher trolley with floor mounting mechanism, separate doctor’s seat, etc. These ambulances are particularly useful for patients who require medical monitoring while in transit and need non-invasive airway management.
The SCVRGH is a government hospital with all major facilities and staff. Currently, the hospital is functioning as a 150 bed dedicated COVID Health Centre (DCHC).
