Cancer hospital at NISER campus to have 150-200 beds

The Centre has announced the construction of a state-of-the-art cancer clinic on the campus of the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) Bhubaneswar. Official reports said it will have beds between 150 and 200 in the first phase. For the Rs 650-crore project, the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), which is the administrative division of NISER, and the Tata Memorial Centre (TMC) and Tata Trusts will partner. While the Centre will spend Rs 400 crore, the Tata Trusts will donate the rest Rs 250 crore.

He continued, scientific study and clinical study must go hand in hand. According to him, the hospital will have more than 150 beds. Many poor people from this area have been referred to Mumbai’s Tata Memorial Center for cancer treatment. We have tried to do something for the state’s people after seeing their suffering.

For this, he said, I thank the Centre, TMC, and the state government. Panda said they will recruit well-trained cancer researchers, involve their own scientists who have done research on cancer, and partner with national organizations to conduct investigation on various cancer drugs. The hospital will begin operation in four years, but it will require three years to build it. I’ll be very happy when the first patient from our hospital will be completely healed from cancer, said the director, adding that our researchers will publish their first clinical research paper.

The skill development department will establish a training center for the cancer hospital staff. Starting this year, this academic school has started preparing to offer a three-year MSc in medical and radiological physics. This course is an applied branch of physics concerned with the applications of ionizing radiation in health care, including radiotherapy, diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, and the associated radiological protection. According to official reports, students of this course will receive instruction in the campus rather than going to TMC Mumbai and other hospitals after the construction of the cancer center.
