Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute to add 200 more beds and six OTs

One of the state’s premier cancer hospital, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, is set to add 200 more beds in its existing super-speciality hospital by April 2019 with an investment of Rs 200 crore. Currently the hospital is running with the bed strength of 302 beds, eight major and three minor operation theaters to provide tertiary cancer care to the patients.

“We will also be adding six more home-banneroperation theatres during this period,” Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre (RGCIRC) CEO DS Negi said.

 On the allocation of  funding  Negi said: “It will be through internal accruals. We have some savings as the surplus income the hospital generates and that will be ploughed back in its infrastructure development”.
The aim is to provide cancer patients affordable care of international standards, he added.
