New Delhi. 21 May 2021. SPCCC continues to serve the patients who need oxygen support, and has proved to be one of the best camp hospitals in the national capital. This confidence at the centre has further added to the faith of the government and today 150 GPS enabled/ based ventilator beds provided from the PM Cares Trust Fund have been made functional here. This will be in addition to the 500 oxygen beds which are already functional at the centre. The ventilators will be used for providing critical care to the Covid19 patients.
The centre is serving as an important centre with the support of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Delhi Government and is providing much needed medical care to patients who need oxygen support.
