4th June 2021, Hyderabad:
India has been in the grip of a devastating second wave of the Corona virus since March 2021, with several cities in fresh lockdowns. The situation called for an urgent intervention to support our Overwhelmed Health Care System.
HYSEA did just that, without wasting any time, chalked out a multi-pronged approach to help govt hospitals cope with the situation by tying up with its NGO partner NIRMAAN on the ground and reaching out to member companies to join the efforts. Key Govt hospitals were identified to augment staff, critical lifesaving equipment & medicines. Home Isolation kits, Livelihood Restarter Kits, Ration & Hygiene Kits were distributed to the needy.
TIMS, Gachibowli, Kondapur Dist. Hospital, Sarojini Devi Hospital, Niloufer Hospital, Gandhi Hospital, King Koti, and Fever Hospital have been extended help by HYSEA and its member companies in every way possible. HFNCs, Ventilators, Oxygen cylinders, Oxygen Concentrators, Beds, Masks, Flow meters etc. every request has been fulfilled. An Oxygen Plant sponsored by our member company Qualcomm India Private Limited(“Qualcomm”) is being set up in Nizamabad at a cost of Rs. 2.5crores.
HYSEA’s Covid response initiative has made a significant progress in increasing ICU beds. We were able to upgrade 75 Existing ICU Beds in TIMS, and 20 ICU Beds in Fever Hospital. We will be setting up 75 New ICU Beds in TIMS Gachibowli by mid-July. Such an impact has been made possible with the support of our member companies. Thanks to the 35+ Corporate partners who believed and contributed more than 14.5 Crores to the mission.
Today, Hon’ble Minister for IT, Industries & Commerce and Municipal Administration & Urban Development formally inaugurated the 150 bed ICU project at TIMS, Gachibowli. This project is sponsored by HYSEA Member companies: Microsoft, Qualcomm, Franklin Templeton, Cognizant & Wells Fargo.
Speaking on the occasion, the Hon’ble minister praised HYSEA and the entire IT Industry of Hyderabad for stepping up to support the overwhelmed health care system and hoped it will have a lasting impact.

While govt will be working towards strengthening the medical infrastructure in the state, he called upon the IT Industry to help in this endeavour as part of their CSR.
