Hope and joy are not usually associated with cancer. However, Narayana Health Mazumdar-Shaw Cancer Center (MSCC) aims to ensure just those sentiments for its patients by bringing them hope and restoring... more their joy.
The diagnosis of cancer spells doom for many patients – mainly due to the stigma attached to it, the fear and also the prohibitive cost of cancer treatment. MSCC, which has the active support of Biocon founder Dr. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, has been set up to bring about a discernable change in this situation. Based on the philanthropic ideas institutionalized by Dr. Devi Shetty at Narayana Health, this Bangalore-based hospital seeks to decouple cancer healthcare from affluence. Thus, its guiding principle is in providing world-class health services in cancer to the masses at a cost which is affordable to all.
Recognizing that treating more patients helps bring down costs, the hospital has 1400 beds, making it the world’s largest cancer institute. However, neither low costs nor its philanthropic philosophy will dilute the quality of the treatment provided.
MSCC boasts of the best talent available in the field. Attracted by its philosophy of giving, its state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatment approaches, and unique ways of harnessing technology to reach out to the masses, a large number of expert oncologists worldwide - from prestigious universities like Cornell and Harvard - have committed to serve as full-time staff at MSCC, so that they can make a difference to society.
MSCC aims at leveraging technology to develop tailored treatment strategies for individual cases. A primary enabler in this endeavour is the augmented Tumour Board, which facilitates collaboration among medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists and other specialists. The Tumour Board discusses and reviews the medical history and condition of all patients to determine the best available treatment option. The technology adopted enables the doctors to have access to a database of cases around the world, the treatment protocol and the results at the click of a mouse. Thus, patients get the advantage of standardized international-level care without expending time and money looking for a second opinion.
MSCC – located at one of the most advanced medical cities and affiliated to some of the best centers around the world – is bestowed with enormous resources and shared protocols for healthcare at every level.
Comprehensive cancer care becomes safer and predictable in an environment such as to ensure availability to “Everyone” who needs it.
