As the work load of HBCH, Sangrur has increased considerably the existing bed strengh is unable to meet the demand.  Based on the request from TMC the State Government has started construction of additional building to house the hospital facilities at a cost of Rs. 10 crores and also additional 20 houses at a cost of Rs. 3.50 crores.  The new building is likely to be commissioned during the first quarter of 2018.


We Are Supported By State Government of Punjab

Punjab government made a significant contribution in helping the hospital where it stands today. Punjab Government has made buildings for the hospitals like RT block, Surgical block and OPD block. They also have made a separate building for upcoming MRI project to be run by Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital. They have also renovated the some existing quarters for residence of doctors within the hospital campus and also made 8 new flats, especially for doctor’s residence in the reputed area in front of Maharaja Ranbir Club, Sangrur.We also have fully furnished Girl’s Hostel for Female Employees within a campus with the help of Punjab Govt.

We are very much thankful to our donors viz., Lok Sewa Society , Sangrur, Smt . Raksha Devi, Smt. Kamlesh Kumari, Shree Kuldeep Singh, Dr. Navjot Kalra


CME in Recent Advances In Imaging For Oncology Management (held on 13 July2019)

This CME provided an excellent academic opportunity to learn image based approach in common cancers. We hosted workshops on breast imaging and image guided biopsy/drainage procedure. The response and participation by the delegates was commendable and it provided them with an opportunity to be trained in these specialties. Faculties from TMH, AIIMS, PGIMER, & medical/colleges across Punjab shared their valuable knowledge and experiences. We look forward to be involved in more such CMEs & conferences.

Five B.Sc. courses are started in HBCH, Sangrur in affiliation with Baba Farid University of Medical Sciences, Faridkot, Punjab .  The courses are B.Sc. (Laboratory Technology), Radiotherapy Technology, Radiology, Anesthesia and Operation Theatre. In each stream 2 students are taken every year. HBCH pays Rs. 5000 per month to each student as stipend. In addition there is six month training course for Laboratory technician and from October 2017 six month course for Radiotherapy Technician also being started. Both six month courses are also will have stipend to the students. Nursing students are also trained for Oncology management.The first batch of B.Sc. (Laboratory Technology) and Radiotherapy have topped the university.

As HBCH, Sangrur is a very young organisation research activity is yet to start in full scale.  Only one clinical trail (multi centre) in Radiotherapy Department started recently.
