Indus Health Network is supporting the Government right from the onset of Covid-19 pandemic in Pakistan. The pandemic is so lethal that it has shaken the strongest economic and healthcare systems of the world.
The honorable Chief Minister of Sindh, Syed Murad Ali Shah included the Indus Hospital (Indus Health Network) in the Anti-Coronavirus campaign and since then Indus is playing a pivotal role in the control of Coronavirus.
Indus Health Network helped the Government of Sindh to set-up two quarantine hospitals at Dumba Goth and Gadap Town.
Under the Indus Hospital Laboratory & Blood Transfusion Services, we are conducting Covid-19 tests of the patients coming to our facilities and also are supporting the requirements of the Government of Sindh.
At the Indus Hospital, Korangi Campus, Karachi, we have established a 26-bed facility with a possibility of ventilator with each bed. At present, we have few Covid positive patients and few ventilators, but we are anticipating the numbers may increase.
We have equipped the Emergency Department (as per WHO recommended protocols) at the Indus Hospital, Korangi Campus, Karachi to provide screening and the treatment for potential Covid-19 patients. At present, with growing number of patients coming to the ER, we are in need of resources to continue to keep our Emergency Department staff equipped and further strengthen the capacity of managing the screening and testing of patients.
We have established a separate section within the Emergency Department at the Korangi Campus, Karachi to deal with the suspected Covid patients as we do not want to mix them with non-Covid patients.
We are running mass public awareness campaign through all our digital platforms (website and social media). We have developed animated videos in English and Urdu, flyers, standees, posters, and other patient education material.
The Network has also devised a comprehensive and all-encompassing policy and is taking necessary actions to ensure the safety of our healthcare professionals and the support staff – working tirelessly to screen and treat the patients. Regular screening of all staff coming to work is being conducted at all of our hospitals and healthcare facilities across the Indus Health Network.
The Indus Hospital’s vision is to provide quality healthcare services absolutely free to the under-served members of the nation. In this time of national emergency, we have geared up to stand with the Government to fight against this pandemic. With our limited resources, we are trying to fight at both fronts – the national emergency and the patients suffering from other diseases.
Your generosity in these pressing times will help us to serve millions awaiting quality and timely healthcare absolutely free. Together we can.
