In an attempt to establish oxygen plant in the Pokhara-based Western Regional Hospital, different social organisations and individuals have provided Rs 15 million plus in donation. More than Rs 30 million has been pledged so far for the purpose.

Batas Organisation, a leading business firm in Pokhara, has taken the lead initiative to set up the oxygen plant in Western Regional Hospital of Pokhara Academy of Health Sciences.

Currently, the hospital is receiving oxygen supplies from different private companies to treat the COVID-19 patients for lack of its own oxygen plant. The hospital has dedicated 50 beds for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

Meanwhile, Oxygen Plant Development Committee has also been constituted under the chair of Batas Foundation’s chief Anandaraj Batas. The Committee has pledged to complete the task in the given deadline and hand it over to the hospital management committee in a transparent manner.

Batas said that the plant to be set up with the investment of Rs 50 million would be the biggest one in Gandaki Province with the capacity to generate 150 oxygen cylinders on a daily basis.
