Sleepwell Donates 500 Bedding Units to Support Acute Shortage of Oxygen Beds in the Capital


National: As COVID-19 cases surge in India, the demand for hospital beds and oxygen cylinders are rapidly rising. While the healthcare community and government are doing everything possible to fight the pandemic, it is imperative that corporates come forward and support the nation. Sleepwell, India’s leading mattress brand from Sheela Foam Ltd., has once again risen to the occasion to support healthcare efforts across the country.

Continuing its partnership with the Government, Sleepwell has donated 500 bedding units to India’s largest COVID-19 facility. The bedding units comprise of mattresses, pillows and beds with a backrest that is especially designed for patients that require oxygen. Currently, 200 such bedding units have been set-up and are ready-to-use while the remaining 300 will be added as per requirement. The company had helped set up the facility last year with a donation of 10,000 bedding units.

Owning to Sleepwell’s rich legacy and expertise in manufacturing, the company has been able to turn-around the production, delivery and assembly of the mattresses in record time. Operated by Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), The Sardar Patel COVID Care Centre is now open for COVID-19-affected patients.

At Sleepwell, we have been committed to ensuring that every COVID-19 patient receives a safe and hygienic bed to recover and therefore are proud to be a trusted partner for the Government. Currently we had added 500 bedding units at The Sardar Patel COVID Care Centre and will continue to support with any further requirements.”
