Power Grid donates medical equipment to OGH

On Wednesday, the Osmania General Hospital (OGH) received high-end medical equipment worth Rs 65 lakh from the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL) as part of its CSR initiative.

The departments of gastroenterology and venereology and leprosy (DVL) in OGH inaugurated a High Resolution (HR) Manometry, used to assess esophageal motor function, lasers, and a whole body PUVA or photochemotherapy machine for ultraviolet radiation treatment (phototherapy) to treat severe skin diseases.

OGH’s superintendent, Dr. B. Nagendar, expressed his sincere gratitude to PGCIL for the CSR gifts and urged other business organizations to do the same to help OGH’s underprivileged and underserved patients.

Such gifts allow for the possibility to help underprivileged people who cannot afford such expensive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. By putting such high-end technology at government hospitals like OGH, not only can complicated and expensive procedures be done without charging patients, but PG students can also benefit from hands-on instruction and experience with such high-end procedures, he said.

Senior hospital administrators as well as the Telangana director of medical education, Dr. K. Ramesh Reddy, and the principal of Osmania Medical College, Dr. Shashikala, officially opened the medical equipment.
