Two new M.Ch courses on surgical oncology and oncology will be offered at the Acharya Harihara Regional Cancer Centre (AHRCC) in Cuttack from the next academic session. Besides, the bed strength of the centre will be increased from 251 to 281, official sources said. "A large number of cancer patients are dependent on the AHRCC, but the centre does not have adequate infrastructure. The state government has submitted a proposal to upgrade the hospital to an apex cancer hospital with an estimated investment of 350 crore.
The work will start in December this year after the masterplan is completed and approved in September," said health minister Prasanna Acharya, after the general body of the governing committee of AHRCC here on Monday. The minister also asked the AHRCC authorities to open a medicine shop on its premises by October 1 so that poor patients can get medicine at affordable prices. Besides, 20 posts of fourth-class employees will also be filled up by August, sources said. The 60-bedded dharamsala on the premises of AHRCC will be made 100-bed to accommodate attendants of patients, sources added. Moreover, the state government has signed an agreement with a company to improve infrastructure facilities and to install advanced equipment in the hospital.
