Chennai: Healthcare service provider CIPACA (Chennai Interventional Pulmonology and Critical Care Associates) said it commenced operations in the northeastern State of Tripura on Saturday, according to an official.
CIPACA, engaged in establishing and managing state-of-the-art intensive care units (ICUs) in rural hospitals, on Friday opened a 24×7 ICU by partnering with 60-bedded Unakoti Nursing Care and Hospital in the northeastern State.
“CIPACA has been recognised as the best rural provider of ICUs. We believe setting up an ICU in Kailashahar in that State is the beginning of a new era in healthcare transformation of rural Tripura,” managing director of Unakoti Nursing Care and Hospital Dr Satyajit Pal said in a press statement here.
Kailashahar is situated about 140 kms from Tripura. Unakoti Nursing Care would be the 13th hospital of CIPACA, where it has set up ICUs.
Managing director of CIPACA Dr. Raja Amarnath said, “Our tie-up will ensure ICU facility for the rural population. Our rural ICU mission continues to get a boost with more and more hospitals as small towns are coming forward to build ICUs,” he added.
Recently, MS Multi-specialty Hospital at Pitapuram in east Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh launched ICU operations in partnership with CIPACA.
The 21-bedded MS Multi-Specialty Hospital tied up with CIPACA to provide care to people in about 50 villages of neighbouring Kakinada and Vishakapatnam of the southern State.
CIPACA has planned to set up over 500 ICU beds in the next two-three years from the existing 300-plus, the statement added.
