ACME unveils model healthcare infrastructure in Bihar

India Blooms News Service | | 30 Dec 2014, 10:47 pm
New Delhi, Dec 30 (IBNS): ACME, on Tuesday announced that it has commissioned India's First Prefabricated Health Centre at Gaya District in Bihar.

The contract for the health centre was bagged by ACME after the EoI was issued by BMSICL under the Department of Health, Govt. of Bihar.

This Health Centre has been built record time of three months using the novel Prefabrication technology.  This technology will help the state to not only to strengthen its infrastructure facilities but also help to showcase its efforts of bringing down the carbon-footprint and adoption of environmental-friendly technologies.

This Mehkar Health Centre will serve as a model infrastructure to the country that is earnestly looking forward to give strong impetus on development of its much-needed rural infrastructure as well as cut down its carbon footprint.

The hospital beds per 1,000 population ratio in India are barely 1.3, significantly lower than the other BRIC economies and the WHO guideline of 3.5 beds per 1,000 population.  As per a report published by PwC, the government alone cannot meet the infrastructure, capacity and delivery shortages existing in the current healthcare system.  In India, the healthcare infrastructure constitutes about 70% of the overall sectoral expenditure and this highlights the need for fast and efficient healthcare infrastructure in India.

Offering a solution to this challenge, Samir Sharan, Chief Executive Officer, ACME said, “The Prefabrication Technology is the key to India’s infrastructure development and we hope that its immediate adoption shall help the country heap in savings in terms of time and money.  The first prefabricated Health Centre set-up at Bihar is a model infrastructure for the infrastructure players to emulate and help in nation-building while cutting down carbon footprint. This model infrastructure is also a testimony to ACME’s engineering and manufacturing expertise and highlights our commitment towards nation-building through implementation of green technologies.”

The use of prefabrication technology in comparison with the conventional methods of construction brings in savings to the tune of 50% while it also helps cutting down the carbon footprint.  The savings also constitute the terms of construction in all terrain and weather conditions.
