Dr. Sirohi, who is the torchbearer of this association from BMC, is also the Founder-President of New India Cancer Charity Initiative, which has led clinical screening for breast, cervical and head & neck cancer in rural India. She is presently on the management committee of ‘CanSupport’ and is a patron for ‘Voice of Tobacco Victims’. She brings with her decades of expertise in the National Health Service in UK, TMC and various corporate cancer centres in India. She is actively involved with the National Cancer Grid, Indian Council of Medical Research, for guideline development and quality improvement initiatives.
Speaking about the association with BALCO Medical Centre, Dr. R. A. Badwe, Director of Tata Memorial Centre, said, “Tata Medical Centre has a track record of driving excellence in cancer care globally and aims to empower as many centres in India to drive the same vision of excellence in service, research and education. I have been closely associated with Balco Medical Centre and have seen their zeal to give high-quality and evidence-based cancer treatment to all patients who come to seek treatment. This association will help us to collaborate with the experts from BMC for mutual exchange of knowledge and conduct cancer research jointly. Interactions such as these will also allow assessment of viability of any new idea amongst experts in both the organizations”
Tata Memorial Centre is amongst the oldest and largest cancer centres in the world, with over 75 years of exceptional patient care, high-quality training and innovative cancer research.
Looking at the rising incidence of cancer as a health threat and lack of quality cancer care centres in tier 2 and 3 cities, Vedanta established BALCO Medical Centre at Raipur to provide affordable comprehensive cancer care to all the sections of the society. Since its inception in March 2018, the BALCO Medical Centre, a comprehensive cancer care hospital, has been garnering trust for its compassionate and quality cancer care. It is one of the most preferred facilities in the region for advanced radiation therapy, brachytherapy, nuclear medicine, surgeries, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, blood-related disorders, bone marrow transplant, plastic and reconstructive surgery, pain & palliative care.
