Taking forward its initiatives in the field of Health care and education, Vedanta Group today announced a world class Super Specialty cancer hospital & research centre in Raipur, Chhattisgarh. The hospital with state-of-the-art technology in all facets of operation from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation is to be established at an initial investment of Rs.100 crores.  The 300-bed hospital would begin with 100 beds in the First phase.

 

Brainchild of Mr. Anil Agarwal, Chairman, Vedanta Resources the proposed world class, and Super Specialty hospital is slated to become operational in about 18 - 24 months.  Designed by Mr. Kamal Malik, the world renowned architect Vedanta Cancer Hospital & Research Centre would bring healthcare, particularly cancer care, of international standards to the doorsteps of the people of Chhattisgarh and its surrounds. The project has received full support from Dr. Raman Singh, Hon. Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh.

 

Endorsing the project, high profile Oncologists and other specialists from the medical fraternity across the globe converged in Mumbai at Tata Memorial Hospital to brainstorm on the broad Blue-Print of the Vedanta Cancer Hospital and Research Centre. The workshop was coordinated by Dr. Praful Desai, ex-director, Tata Memorial Hospital and was attended by Dr.Jatin Shah, Professor of Surgical Oncology at Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, New York, Dr.Soo K Chee, Director- National Cancer Centre, Singapore, Dr.Valiathan from Manipal, Dr. B. Ganesh of Epidemiology dept, TMH, Dr.Advani, Director Asian Institute of Oncology from Jaslok, and Dr. Dinshaw, Director of Tata Memorial Centre.

 

The hospital would also comprise a Research Institute for India centric cancer research and an academic institution to train oncologists, technicians and related Health care professionals that would be on par with the best in the world. It has been planned to give thrust to Cardiac care and Neuro Sciences along with Cancer at a subsequent stage.

 

The entire aspect of Cancer care would focus on Primary, Secondary and Tertiary care, the former two beginning at the district levels itself.  As a first step towards Cancer care, it has been planned to have a couple of Primary healthcare centres in the districts of Chhattisgarh with Mobile Vans plying the villages of Korba and Kawardha, equipped to facilitate diagnosis of the disease, create awareness and educate the village populace about Cancer. The Secondary health centres, again in the districts, would enable cancer screening and detection. 

 

The primary and Secondary Phases are perceived to kick start in 6 9 months from now. Tertiary care, including comprehensive diagnosis, consultation services, preventive checks and counseling, would be provided at the Raipur Vedanta Cancer Hospital and Research Institute.
