Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital, Varanasi
(Under the auspices of Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai and the Indian Railways)

INTRODUCTION

Uttar Pradesh, with nearly 20 crore population, is the most populous state in the country. The state is reported to have the maximum number of cancers and cancer related deaths. However, there is an acute shortfall of comprehensive cancer care facilities in the state of Uttar Pradesh and adjoining areas. For resolution of this problem, Parliamentary committee on Science and Technology has entrusted Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai under the leadership of Prime Minister Office, Government of India, to lead the effort to create adequate infrastructure and trained work force in the field of Oncology. To address the growing problem of cancer and lack of adequately trained manpower, Tata Memorial Centre (Grant-in-Aid Institution under Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India) has established Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital (HBCH) and Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Cancer Centre (MPMMCC) at Varanasi with the aim to offer state of the art patient care services, high quality education and cutting-edge research in the region of Uttar Pradesh.

THE HOSPITALS

HBCH was commissioned on 1st May 2018 as a 179-bedded hospital while the 352-bedded MPMMCC was commissioned on 19th February, 2019. Both HBCH and MPMMCC were formally inaugurated by Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi Ji on 19th February 2019. The distance between HBCH, Varanasi and MPMMCC, Varanasi is about 8 kilometers with driving time of 20 minutes. There is very good road connectivity between the two hospitals. Both HBCH and MPMMCC are working as complementary units under the administrative control of Director, HBCH & MPMMCC.


Our hospitals cater to the "cancer belt of India”, a population of nearly 40 crore people living in the States of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, etc. The area not only has the highest burden of cancer cases but also is plagued with acute shortage of trained manpower to deal with management of cancer. The situation is going to worsen in the next couple of decades due to rapid urbanization in these areas. Through our twin hospitals, we are bringing comprehensive and very high-quality cancer care at affordable costs to the doorsteps of patients of Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh), its neighboring districts and adjoining States.

Mission

To provide comprehensive cancer care to one and all, through its motto of excellence in service, education and research.

Vision

To provide leadership in guiding the national policy and strategy for cancer care by:

  • Promoting outstanding services through evidence-based practice of oncology.
  • Commitment of imparting education in cancer to students, trainees, professionals’, employees and the public, and,
  • Emphasizing on research that is affordable, innovative and relevant to the needs of the country.
