COVID-19 patients to shift from rundown Ulhasnagar hospital

Thane, Jun 29 (PTI) Newly-appointed Ulhasnagar municipal commissioner Mantada Raja Dayanidhi on Monday ordered the shifting of COVID-19 patients from the ESIS Hospital as the building is in a dilapidated condition and could turn dangerous in the rains.

Dayanidhi had taken a round of the hospital recently and gave orders for shifting of COVID-19 patients to Vedant Hospital and the process will begin soon, ESIS Hospital Superintendent Dr Vilas Dongre told PTI.

'The ESIS hospital building was constructed in 1975.

It has a capacity of 100 beds and presently 51 COVID-19 patients are admitted here,' Dongre informed. PTI COR BNM BNM
