Shah Rukh Khan's Khar office turned into 15-bed ICU facility
Hinduja Hospital from today; equipped with oxygen and ventilators; housekeeping and meals by Khan's Meer Foundations
Two months after Shah Rukh Khan's office in Khar was turned into a quarantine centre for asymptomatic, the BMC has further converted the superstar's facility into an ICU for critical patients.
The 15-bed facility will be operational from today, in association with Khan's Meer Foundation, Hinduja Hospital in Khar and the BMC. Khan had offered his four storeyed office on CD Marg to the BMC in April, but it couldn't be taken over until May-end due to lack of doctors and healthcare workers. It was acquired after Mirror's report on May 29. The work to upgrade the space into an ICU facility began on July 15 and isolated patients were shifted to another centre.
Executive director of Hinduja Hospital (Khar), Dr Avinash Supe said the current need for the pandemic is more ICU beds with oxygen tanks and ventilators. He said the space will have six beds with central oxygen facility on the first floor and five ICU beds and four standby beds on the second floor.
