Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences has been serving vulnerable population with state-of-the-art medical infrastructure for nearly 3 decades. The institution is presently managing COVID-19 Wards in Sawangi(M), Wanadongri and Nagpur. Through these facilities it caters to not only Maharashtra but also neighbouring states like Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh.

The financial support secured from USAID’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, will enable the institution to convert 100 of its existing beds into oxygenated beds, 20 of which will be intensive care facilities. DMIMS, within 6 months of receiving the funding, aims to impact 56000 vulnerable lives, from tribal population and economically backward communities.
