Arcil donates dialysis equipment

Arcil, India’s pioneering Asset Reconstruction Company has donated Dialysis Equipment to the Jain Medical & Dialysis Centre, Coimbatore in September, 2023 and sanctioned two grants to G. Kuppuswamy Naidu Memorial Hospital (GKNMH) for conducting critical surgeries to correct Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) of infants.
Commenting on the initiative, Pallav Mohapatra, CEO and MD, Arcil, said, “Arcil takes pride in contributing to community well-being, underscoring our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and impactful improvements in healthcare accessibility.''
Jain Medical and Dialysis Centre (JMDC) is a unit run by a charitable organization registered as Society under The Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act, 1975 by the name of Coimbatore Sree Mahaveer Welfare Society. In the last 10 years, the Centre has carried out 33000 dialysis for 250 patients.
Dialysis treatment is provided by the Centre at a subsidised  cost of Rs. 300/- per session along with other  ancillary services while the actual cost per dialysis session is Rs. 1,100/-. Currently, it is  able to perform approximately 700-750 dialysis in a month and the donation of the required medical equipment by Arcil will help the Centre to attain its full capacity of 1000 dialysis per month, and thereby provide cost effective, reliable and efficient health care facilities to low income 
beneficiaries.
India faces a pressing challenge with the highest number of children diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) globally. 
To address this, Arcil is providing financial support to G. Kuppuswamy Naidu Memorial Hospital (GKNMH), Coimbatore, under the umbrella of Project Healing Tiny 
Hearts. 
This initiative focuses on facilitating life-saving interventions for less privileged children, aged 0-18, suffering from critical CHD.
