Mrs. Jyoti Agarwal, Chairperson of Balco Medical Centre, reiterated the facility’s commitment to make treatment of cancer affordable for the people with ‘compassion, care and cure.’ Recollecting the year gone by, she said, “We treasure every effort we make in our fight against cancer. We strive to bring smile back on the face of each and every individual who walks into our facility. But it is the joy of a young daughter that I witnessed when she heard of her father’s recovery from stomach cancer that will remain permanently etched in my heart.”
Renowned Indian actress Ms. Manisha Koirala, a cancer survivor herself, paid a visit to the medical facility on its 1st anniversary where she interacted with the patients and shared her experience with them. Ms. Koirala spoke about the critical role that advanced healthcare technologies and specialist doctors played in her fight with cancer, and instilled faith and confidence among the patients.
Balco Medical Centre, the 170-bed, state-of-the-art tertiary care oncology facility with 40 specialist doctors, set up in Naya Raipur, Chhattisgarh, is the largest such facility in the entire central India. But more importantly, it provides affordable yet world-class treatment of the most critical disease known to mankind. Currently, it is fast emerging as a national leader in India’s oncology space including medical, surgical, radiation and palliative care.
Further extending the efforts on the practice of ‘preventive and curative’ healthcare delivery, Vedanta went beyond the medical facility to take BMC’s capability as closer to the people as possible with several on-ground initiatives like free cancer screening camps and spreading awareness and education through digital and social media.
