Due to awareness by way of education and literacy, early stage disease patients are coming for treatment and therefore the mortality rate has come down in curable cancers.

The lost to followup for treatment is coming down due to increase in the facilities in the sophisticate equipments, cheaper treatment and staying facilities given to the patients who come for treatment in the Institute.

The Bone Marrow Transplant unit is being installed to do autologous peripheral stem cell harvesting and treatment

In the academic front Institute has been recognised by the Government of India as an Institute of Excellence and the WHO has recognised as a training centre for Oncology.

We are running several Global Clinical Trials and Indian Council of Medical Research Projects in treatment & diagnosis of the Cancer disease.

Even though the revenue of the hospital is being tripled, still the financial status of the Institute is gone bad to worse.

FUTURE VISION:

The need of the next millennium is to use the important advances in the knowledge about cancer, to focus on cancer prevention and education, improve existing care services and to equip advance diagnostic equipments.

The major challenge today is to apply knowledge about the heterogeneity of indivisual tumours at the moleucular, cellular and tissue levesl to design treatment strategies, role of moleucular pathology in cancer diagnosis, to have a radiobiology laboratory for developing predictive assays. We have also planned to computerise the Patient Management, laboratory, accounts of the Institute and we also have a plan to establish a Rural Cancer Registry.

To cater to the upper class patients a hitech hospital is being planned to give the expertise and comfort in style.
