Udaipur: In order to meet the pressing medical needs in smaller towns, Vedanta, a leading producer of metals, oil and gas, is setting up 100-bed state-of-the-art field hospitals, with critical COVID care facilities, in the Dariba and Barmer districts of Rajasthan. HOSMAC, Asia’s leading healthcare management, and planning consultancy is responsible for designing, equipping and managing project execution of these hospitals and also ensuring that the facility is well maintained for a period of 6 months. All these hospitals are twinned with a District Hospital which enables clinical and general management of the hospital with oxygen support.
In the past, HOSMAC was appointed for turnkey hospital consultancy of prestigious medical facilities such as Paras JK Hospital in Udaipur, Eternal Heart Hospital in Jaipur, and Noon Hospital in Bhawani Mandi. Currently, the company is working with Geetanjali Medical University of Udaipur to develop a 150 admission Teaching Hospital & Medical College in Jaipur.
Dr. Vivek Desai, Founder & Managing Director, HOSMAC says “Unlike the 2020 COVID scenario, this second wave has reached Tier III towns and even rural areas. Vedanta Field hospitals will help the administration to combat the acute need of oxygen supported beds and critical care beds with ventilators in small towns. Medical infrastructure is underdeveloped in most areas of Rajasthan, making it difficult to take healthcare to the last mile especially during crucial times such as now. There is also a shortage of manpower and technological advancement. Development of hospitals as well as medical colleges needs to accelerate to fill the gap. State-of-the-art medical infrastructure can be achieved through synergistic public-private partnerships.”
