Patient Security at ESIC Hospital, Kandivali
Having been built as a top class facility with no expense spared, the ESIC Hospital Kandivali truly proved its worth as the COVID-19 pandemic hit by offering 300 beds to those suffering from the virus. There are five dedicated COVID-19 facilities in the city of Mumbai, servicing a population of over 12 million. After visiting the modern, state-of-the-art facility most are impressed. The ESIC Hospital Kandivali is a five storey building set on a 36, 000 square meter piece of land. The construction of the hospital cost around Rs 180 crore and included advanced equipment and the best facilities in over 15 different departments. Since its inauguration in 2015 there was some controversy about its use, but this has been put aside as it has played a valuable part in our fight against the pandemic. After the announcement, comments on the choice included “Nice effort, it’s time to prove and show to the public, ESIC is the front runner in providing quality healthcare in India.” and “Very glad to learn that ESIC Kandivali hospital is chosen to serve Covid-19 cases. Welcome transformation”.
