BDA to donate dialysis units to private hospitals

The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has proposed to provide dialysis units free of cost to private hospitals that have promised to offer free dialysis services.

“The statutory framework of the BDA provides for extending help and rendering social service. Even before this, we have helped a lot of people. This time, we have been instructed to assist hospitals. Select hospitals would be given two dialysis units each,” said T Sham Bhatt, Commissioner, BDA. 

The civic agency has instructed its executive engineers to make a list of hospitals actively involved in social service and charity. However, the companies from which the equipment would be purchased are yet to be finalised.

The BDA would also extend financial support to Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital, Jayadeva Hospital and Kidwai Memorial Institute, for purchase of equipment.
