US-based Lam Research Corporation has announced the funding of additional critical care facilities at the Hassan Institute of Medical Sciences (HIMS), Karnataka.
As part of the initiative, 18 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds have been added at the institution in partnership with United Way, Bengaluru.
The HIMS support is a result of Lam Research’s previously committed $1 million (Rs ~7.5 cr) for COVID-19 relief efforts in India to provide critical medical supplies and support to health care providers in communities across India.
Rangesh Raghavan, Corporate Vice President and GM, Lam Research India said, “Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have focused on supporting the healthcare systems and helping frontline healthcare workers in their fight against the virus. The expansion of critical care infrastructure at HIMS is a step towards the same.”
HIMS used Lam’s donation to obtain critical medical equipment such as pediatric ventilators, ICU cots, multipara monitors, pulse oximeters, infusion pumps, syringe pumps, Pediatric LED laryngoscopes, ventilator circuits, humidified high-flow nasal cannula circuits, and nasal prongs.
Lam Research India has also funded vaccination drives in various Bengaluru-based schools with which its Corporate Social Responsibility organisation engages. Close to 900 adults were vaccinated including parents, siblings, and immediate family members of students, alongside school staff.
