Private sector Kotak Mahindra Bank has extended support to King George’s Medical University (KGMU), Lucknow for 24*7 critical life support ambulances.

Kotak’s initiative, flagged off by Uttar Pradesh governor Anandiben Patel, has been launched under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment in association with Impact Guru Foundation.

The state-of-the-art cardiac ambulances are equipped with specialised equipment, trained personnel and Advanced Life Support (ALS) capabilities and designed to respond quickly to traumatic emergencies and transport patients to trauma centers or hospitals.

The initiative will be extended to charitable hospitals, including M Y Hospital, Indore; Karnataka Lingayat Education Society (KLES), Belagavi; Jivan Jyot Trust Hospital, Surat; and Jeevan Rekha Critical Care & Trauma Hospital, Jaipur.

It underscores Kotak’s commitment to improve access to healthcare, particularly in semi-urban and rural areas where timely medical intervention and support is not easily available.

Himanshu Nivsarkar, Senior EVP and Head – CSR, Kotak Mahindra Bank, said through the initiative, “we aim to provide 24*7 services to medical and trauma related emergencies, bridging as a life-saving link between the patient and the healthcare facility.”

Sundeep Talwar, CEO, Impact Guru Foundation said the partnership is aimed to extend support to more hospitals with such ambulances, saving more lives together.

Meanwhile, KGMU vice chancellor Sonia Nityanand said the ambulances will help bring down fatalities and reduce turn-around time to bring patients to the hospital without delay.
