Director ‘s message

Tata Memorial Centre has been at the forefront of managing the huge cancer burden in India and works on the mandates of service, research, and education. To cater to the ever-increasing number of cancer cases, two units have been set up in Punjab (one at New Chandigarh, Mohali, and the other at Sangrur). We aim to provide comprehensive, evidence-based cancer care to thousands of patients at their doorstep.

We are proud to house state-of-the-art facilities equipped with the latest medical technology, enabling our expert healthcare professionals to deliver precise diagnostics, innovative treatments, and optimal care. Our multidisciplinary teams of oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, and nurses work collaboratively, leveraging their diverse expertise to create tailored treatment plans for each patient. Our dedicated support services, including counseling, nutritional guidance, pain management, and survivor-ship programs, are designed to enhance the overall quality of life of cancer patients.

Our emphasis is on research that is affordable and relevant to the needs of the country. We believe in collaboration across programs, across disciplines, and across institutions. We actively participate in clinical trials and collaborate with leading research institutions and international cancer centers to stay at the forefront of advancements in cancer treatment. By bringing the latest discoveries to our patients, we strive to improve outcomes and pave the way for new breakthroughs in cancer care.

We are committed to imparting education in cancer to students, trainees, professionals, employees, and the public in general. We organize informative seminars, webinars, and awareness campaigns. These initiatives aim to empower individuals with knowledge about cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment options while fostering a supportive network for patients, survivors, and their families. We hope to build a program to identify Cancer Burden, Cancer causation, and Cancer Prevention Strategies in the neighboring states of Punjab.

We also envisage the development of smaller peripheral cancer centers based on the hub and Spoke Model for screening, prevention, and affordable, high-quality cancer treatment at the community level in the entire northern part of India. We hope to contribute substantially towards early detection of cancer and optimum cancer care.

We appreciate very much the ongoing efforts of the Tata Memorial Center and Department of Atomic Energy and their generous support and initiatives towards this project.

Let’s join hands to improve cancer care in our region.
