State-of-the-art critical care medical equipment for NICU in Tamil Nadu

Cognizant Foundation (CF) has provided state-of-the-art critical care medical equipment to Government Stanley Hospital, Chennai. This project is implemented in partnership with the Rotary Club of Madras East Trust (RCMET), Chennai, Tamil Nadu. This project has supported the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and the High Dependency Unit (HDU) of Government Stanley Hospital in Chennai.

This project has increased the capacity of the PICU & HDU of Government Hospitals to provide critical healthcare services to ill newborn babies. Through this support, over 35 newborn babies in PICU and over 150 newborn babies in HDU from underserved sections of the society benefit each month.

Rotary Club of Madras East Trust (RCMET) is the charitable arm of the Rotary Club of Madras East. RCMET has recently helped to expand the Corporation Dialysis Centre in Nungambakkam. They have helped the Child Trust Hospital, Chennai to procure critical medical equipment and helped upgrade the ICU of Hindu Mission Hospital, Chennai.

CF has adopted “Promoting Women and Child Health” as one of its programme in Healthcare. The shortage of critical medical equipment in maternal and childcare hospitals is a barrier to deliver quality health services. Under this programme, CF supports various hospitals to build their capacity in maternal and childcare hospitals.
