Cancer patients to get health facilities near their homes

Most of the time, cancer patients in Mumbai have to rush to Tata Hospital or private hospitals for treatment. However, looking at the waiting list in Tata Hospital, patients have no option but to wait for a longer period of time for treatment.

As treatment in private hospitals is unaffordable, the condition of patients worsen with the time. But henceforth cancer patients will get treatment near home. Four doctors from Mumbai have come together to establish the Mumbai Onco Care Center through which cancer patients will be treated at their homes. So far 16 centers have been started in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh and 18 centers will be operational in the next few days.
