This initiative is part of Capgemini’s Rupees 50 Crore committed to augment medical infrastructure across the country to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic

Bengaluru, July 20, 2021 – Capgemini today announced its collaboration with Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to deploy medical oxygen plants at Victoria Hospital and Charaka Super Specialty Hospital. These oxygen plants are funded by Capgemini as part of its commitment of Rupees 50 crore to augment medical infrastructure across India.

The oxygen plants were virtually inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka Shri B. S. Yediyurappa in the presence of Shri K Sudhakar; Honorable Minister for health, family welfare & Medical education; Ashwin Yardi, CEO of Capgemini in India; Ms Uma Mahadevan, Principal Secretary, Panchayat Raj; Dr CR Jayanti ,Director and Dean of Victoria Hospital; Dr Manoj Kumar, Director and Dean, Charaka Super Specialty Hospital and other leaders from Capgemini.

The oxygen plants set up at both these hospitals will generate 400 liters Per Minute. These oxygen generators can also be fitted with cylinder refill units, which gives a two-way approach for supplying oxygen to the patients and provides full autonomy to healthcare facilities to manage peak consumption flows.

In addition to this, in 2021 to help address the second wave of COVID-19, Capgemini donated more than 125 Oxygen concentrators across Bengaluru and will install one more oxygen plant in few weeks at the Epidemic Diseases Hospital.

“As the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the collaboration of the public and private sector to augment the medical infrastructure will further accelerate the relief efforts. Private sector companies including Capgemini have been supporting the state in various COVID-19 relief efforts including setting up of medical oxygen plants. It is a great support to the society during the need of the hour,” said Shri B. S. Yediyurappa, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka during the virtual inauguration.

“Capgemini has been working with several governmental agencies across the country to support the COVID-19 relief efforts. The new oxygen plants in Bengaluru will address the growing need for medical oxygen. We thank various governmental agencies who helped us in setting up the medical oxygen plants, which will further support in providing an important component of COVID-19 treatment,” said Ashwin Yardi, CEO of Capgemini in India.

During 2020, in line with Capgemini’s social commitment, Capgemini’s Social Response Unit (SRU) provided 100 Oxygen Concentrators (OC), 65 High Flow Nasal Cannulas (HFNC) to 15 government hospitals across Bengaluru and 25 testing kiosks to the Bangalore PHC for COVID testing.
