Well known centre for cancer treatment, Panda Curie Cancer Hospital of Dr. Krupasindhu Panda, is now equipped with Comprehensive Radiation Therapy Facility, in partnership with the Health Care Global Enterprises Ltd, (HCG) of Bangalore. This facility is the first of its kind in Orissa.
HCG is Asia’s Largest Cancer Care Network, with 27 Cancer Centers, 4 tertiary Care Centers and 4 Fertility Care Centers. It makes high quality healthcare accessible to all by adopting global innovations.
Participating in the launching ceremony that took place on August 18, Chairman of the HCG group Dr. B. S. Ajalkumar said, “ HCG has redefined cancer care in India, by creating accessibility to technology, innovation and expertise. We are happy to partner with Dr. K S Panda, leading oncologist in Orissa and launch the 1st comprehensive radiation centre in Orissa, which has been lacking access to quality cancer care. HCG model of taking advanced cancer treatment to tier 2 & tier 3 cities, has benefited the patients immensely, with better medical outcomes and quality of life.”
Rededicating his efforts to cancer patients of the State, Medical Director of the centre, Dr. Panda said, “A comprehensive cancer centre in Orissa was the need of the hour. The incidence of cancer is on the rise with better diagnosis, lifestyle factors and increasing age. With the inauguration of the most advanced radiation therapy centre a dream has come true, where all the modalities of cancer treatment are accessible to patients, which will redefine cancer care treatment in Orissa.”
The advanced radiation centre was an outstanding need.
