The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC),which manages Gurdwaras in Delhi state, on Sunday created a history, launched “India’s biggest” kidney dialysis facility at the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib complex here.
“All services are being provided totally free in this most technically advanced hospital. There is no billing or payment counter. The DSGMC will take services from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) from corporate houses and from those who are willing to contribute for such initiatives and various government schemes,” DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa said.
“ Guru Harkishan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Kidney Dialysis Hospital is the largest kidney dialysis centre in the country, which has capacity of conducting dialysis of 500 patients every day. In one go, 100 patients can be provided dialysis service. The service at the centre will be free. We haven’t built any cash or billing counter. The patients and their attendants will be served meals from the langar,” said Sirsa.
The capacity will soon be increased to 1,000 beds from the current 101 beds and renowned dialysis specialist doctors of the country will manage the facility he added.
He further revealed that the committee has been running various medical facilities at different Gurdwaras across the national capital. On March 11, the committee will open a diagnostic centre at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, where service such as MRI, CT Scan, Ultrasound, and other tests will be available at the ‘cheapest’ rates.
