At SpiceJet, sustainability and care for people have been our guiding force to delineate every situation and it was no different when the news of a nationwide lockdown first emerged. Our collective conscience guided us to operate flights to repatriate Indians stranded across the world. In our bid to keep the country’s pulse alive, we operated cargo flights to ferry essential supplies and medical equipment to nook and corner of the country. At the helm of the shortage of PPE Kits, a special flight was run by SpiceJet to transport a sample coverall suit from Delhi to Coimbatore for its mass production. Another close to the heart operation undertaken by us, is the transport of 550 kgs of cancer medication from Delhi to Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bengaluru, absolutely free, by our door-to-door delivery cargo wing – SpiceXpress.
While the lockdown may have eased, there still seems to be a bigger problem at hand – the mounting number of cases and the widening gap of demand and supply in our healthcare infrastructure. With cases spiking by the day, the shortage of medical supplies and equipment, especially ventilators, has been the foremost concern of the nation.
Rising to this challenge, SpiceJet created Spice Health, a company which is dedicated to providing ease of access to a plethora of preventive and curative medical supplies and equipment, under one roof.
Committed to the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the GOI, we are happy to introduce an indigenously developed, state of the art non-invasive BPAP Ventilator- ‘SpiceOxy’, to aid patients affected by respiratory disorders. This world-class innovation – ‘SpiceOxy’, promises robust performance, ease of use, durability, and affordability, thus making this product appropriate not only for hospitals or clinics but also for homes.
Yet another path-breaking initiative of Spice HealthCare, in collaboration with GeneStore France, is the mobile laboratory for RT PCR testing for COVID 19, with a reporting time frame of as less than 3-4 hours. This ground-breaking solution is economically beneficial to the common man of this country. These laboratories can be deployed for sectors ranging from residential areas, industrial parks, corporate hubs, manufacturing sectors, education, and public health centers, education, railways, bus transport, and many more. The solution will be critical for the opening of the Indian economy in the near to middle term.
Our mission is to help seal the gap in the demand and supply of medical requirements and act as a breath of fresh air for people in distress.
