Newly developed COVID Treatment Centre of Steel Authority of India Limited’s Rourkela Steel Plant Ispat Nidan Kendra was inaugurated by Steel Minster Mr Dharmendra Pradhan through virtual mode on 2 June, 2021. This centre has at present 100 oxygenated beds including 50 ventilator-attached beds. Work is in progress to increase the oxygenated bed strength to 500 including 100 ventilator-attached beds in near future.
All the beds in this Ispat Nidan Kendra have the provision of gaseous oxygen directly through dedicated line drawn directly from the oxygen unit of the steel plant. The provision of gaseous oxygen will help in getting rid of the need to replenish cylinders and the logistic issues, besides ensuring uninterrupted availability of the life saving gas. This jumbo facility, which has been set up within a record time, is in addition to the beds and ICU beds already made available earlier for fight against COVID. The Ispat Nidaan Kendra is being set up as a permanent type installation with facility of oxygen availability for 500 beds that will go a long way in the treatment of numerous patients in the region.
