The Tata Medical Center, Kolkata a Rs. 800 crore, world class, not-for-profit hospital, stands as a beacon of hope for cancer patients.
Set up by the Tata Group, it is one of the Tata Group’s big philanthropic initiatives which engages in providing healthcare services to the community in the area of cancer treatment.
The Tata Group has always believed in returning wealth to the Society it serves and the Tata Medical Center stands as a true testimonial of this fact where almost half of the beds are reserved for treatment of underprivileged patients.
Mr. Ratan Tata inaugurated this hospital on 16th May 2011, funded entirely by one of the largest endowment from the Tata Trusts despite a plethora of philanthropic commitments across the country.
Tata Medical Center, Kolkata currently houses 437 beds with the most modern diagnostic and treatment facilities. The hospital has already treated more than 1,00,000 patients and performed almost 25,000 surgeries till date. A team of 240 specialist doctors, 440 nurses and other technical staff work selflessly to provide treatment to the thousands of patients streaming in every month.
The Tata Medical Center has since its inception provided cancer care to thousands of patients in Eastern India. The hospital is a beacon of hope for patients in the region who otherwise had to travel to different cities in the country seeking treatment. Long periods of stay away from home during the Course of treatment had become a huge financial burden to many families adding to the misery and suffering. Many a time patients abandon treatment unable to withstand such pressures.
The need is to provide a best in class cancer care facility to cancer patients in eastern India without it being a huge financial burden to the patients who are already stressed with battling the disease.
