Cancer care hospital network Cytecare has inaugurated its first 150-bed flagship facility in Yelahanka, Bengaluru, with an aim to revolutionise cancer treatment by providing personalised care. Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala inaugurated the facility during an event attended by visiting dignitaries and the company’s global board of directors.
“Medical research has revealed that no two cancer patients are the same and hence each person needs a customized treatment plan. Cytecare has brought together a team of organ-site specialist doctors and medical professionals along with the best technical equipment available globally to ensure that every patient is treated in the right way,” said Dr Ferzaan Engineer, Co-founder and Chairman of Cytecare.
The new hospital uses Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), a next-generation breast imaging digital technology. Cytecare is also the first hospital in Karnataka to have the Elekta Versa HD. This ground-breaking linear accelerator is used in the delivery of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and radiosurgery (SRS) worldwide.
The hospital is equipped with five major operating theatres, radiology and nuclear medicine suite, and advanced laboratory facilities.
“The hospital will work to the highest standards of quality, governance and clinical excellence supervised by a multi-disciplinary Tumour Board. The hospital will empower patients with information and counselling and will also have a strong focus on services such as nursing, pain and palliation, physiotherapy and nutrition. We will also go the extra mile to ensure a patient’s comfort by providing holistic care and a tranquil environment,” said Suresh Ramu, Co-founder and CEO of Cytecare.
Cytecare plans to expand its network across 4-5 major hospitals in India using a hub-and-spoke model. Plans are also afoot to launch various outreach initiatives to engage communities for better health.
