Odisha Chief Minister laid the foundation stone a state-of-the-art Cancer Treatment & Research Hospital

Cuttack :17/2/19: In an attempt to provide quality cancer care at affordable cost, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Sunday laid the foundation stone a state-of-the-art Cancer Treatment & Research Hospital at Ratagarh-Nuasahi under Barang tehsil in Cuttack district.

The institute, to be wholly managed by Tata Trust, would be benchmarked with the iconic Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai. The Odisha government has provided 25 acres land free of cost to the Tata Trust for the setting up of the hospital.


“The State government is committed towards cancer treatment and has started chemo programme at each district headquarters hospital. All centres are connected to the Acharya Harihar Cancer Centre in our commitment to provide affordable cancer treatment. This is a stepping stone in comprehensive cancer care,” said Chief Minister Patnaik while attending the foundation laying function.

Cancer kills everybody right from the people living on the fringes to wealthier sections. The hospital would provide quality healthcare to fight the dreaded cancer disease in Odisha, said Tata Trusts chairman Ratan Tata.

Currently Acharya Harihar Regional Cancer Centre in Cuttack is the lone government-run institute, that provides cancer care in the State.
