PNB Housing Finance Ltd, in an effort to provide quality healthcare to patients from the economically and socially deprived sections of society, donated healthcare equipment to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi today.
As a part of the program, the company has donated surgical Plasma Sterilizers to Departments of Neurosurgery and Cardiothoracic and Vascular surgery. This program is in continuation to PNBHF’s healthcare initiatives last year, where the company donated advanced equipment to the Neurosurgery Department at AIIMS.
The Department of Neurosurgery conducts 3,000 surgeries annually and the Department of Cardiothoracic & Vascular surgery conducts 4,000 surgeries annually.
Said Sanjaya Gupta, Managing Director- PNB Housing Finance Ltd., “Through our collaboration with AIIMS, the intent is to reduce time involved in preparation for a surgery and also sanitize surgical equipment efficiently; thereby reducing the wait time for patients.”
Prof. Randeep Guleria, Director-All India Institute of Medical Sciences said, “AIIMS is a public hospital that caters to the VIPs as well as the poorest of the poor. The rising costs of healthcare, particularly the advanced technology critical to investigation and remediation of illnesses can pose a challenge to service delivery. With support from CSR of PNB Housing, we are hopeful that patient care, across different socio-economic strata will be strengthened.”
