EHI Undertakes East Delhi Municipal Corporation-Vision 2020 Project


The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) which is among the largest municipal bodies in the world providing civic services to more than estimated population of 11 million citizens in the capital and covering an area of around 1,397.3 km² (539.5 mi²). After the trifurcation of MCD, East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) was established on 1st May 2012. As a consequence the healthcare institutions got divided between the bodies leaving Swami Dayanand Hospital as the only secondary care facility under EDMC catering to over 40 lacs population.

In order to meet the urgent healthcare needs EDMC proposed a Vision 2020 project to upgrade Swami Dayanand Hospital in Dilshad Garden and Poly Clinic at Karawal Nagar.


EHI INTERNATIONAL Pvt. Ltd. (Formerly Known as EPOS Health India) has undertaken comprehensive assessments for the aforementioned up gradations to achieve the minimum healthcare requirements in East Delhi. EHI International teams carried out dynamic due diligence studies consisting of Feasibility, market assessment, disease profiling, infrastructure assessment, manpower planning; equipment assessment and planning for up gradation and integration.


EHI International took the fundamental approach to design various integrations and up gradation modalities separately for both the facilities. The major task was to accommodate adequate number of beds and integrated the proposed hospitals with the existing blocks scattered over 19.2 & 10 acres of land respectively in both the sites.


EHI International developed workable cost effective models to integrate the facilities with least environmental destruction and proper utilization of available resources and spaces benchmarked against the IPHS norms for 101-200 beds and 301 to 500 beds for public health and NABH to meet the National quality standards.


As Swami Dayanand Hospital shall be the largest healthcare facility in East Delhi, EHI International developed a unique integration and up gradation plan encompassing 100 bedded Trauma Center, 120 Bedded Mother & Child Block integrated with 500 Bed in-patient block as per MCI norms; so that the same could be up graded into a Medical College and Hospital in future. The new IPD block has been interconnected with the new OPD block through an over head bridge on the 3rd floor giving an aesthetic look to the entire complex.


EHI International understands the importance of Green Building designs and its impact on the overall environment and service delivery. The designs recommended by EHI International are as per latest Green Building principles to increase building inefficiencies and reduce waste – taking into account Rain Water Harvesting, Solar Energy System, Grass Pavements, Water Bodies and Lush Green surroundings.
