Max Healthcare has set up a Dedicated Covid Health Centre in Gurugram for patients showing mild or moderate symptoms.

It is located at Vista Signature, a space meant for corporate events before the pandemic struck, near Max Super Specialty Hospital, Gurugram.

The Centre offers 24x7 medical supervision, including doctors and nurses on premises, a comprehensive Covid-care plan, daily visit by a Senior Consultant – Internal Medicine, monitoring by trained nurse, video consults by psychologists, oxygen support for stabilising the patients, and ambulance transfer in case of emergency. The charges for stay at DCHC are ₹9,500 per day, the company has stated.

Lowering risk of infection

Sandeep Budhiraja, Group Medical Director, Max Healthcare, said, “By segregating Covid patients from the general populace, it will not only lower the risk of infection for everyone but also reduce overcrowding at hospitals, leaving more space for the treatment of non-Covid patients.”

This initiative aims to keep Covid and non-Covid patients segregated. It also intends to ensure that non-Covid patients in specialties such as cardiac, neurology, orthopaedics, cancer and dialysis as well as immune-compromised patients receive regular and timely treatment at Max Hospital Gurugram, said the press statement.

Max Super Specialty Hospital, Gurugram, is also providing exclusive home isolation care at ₹11,500 for the whole of 15 days, including five teleconsultations with a Senior Consultant of Internal Medicine.
