Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali, inaugurated a new and fully dedicated Oncology Tower recently. The building (MICC Tower II) was inaugurated by Retd General VK Singh MOS for Road Transport and Highways in the presence of other dignitaries.
Gracing the event with their presence were Abhay Soi, Chairman, Max Healthcare, Dr Harit Chaturvedi, Chairman, Max Institute of Cancer Care, senior oncologists, members from Max senior leadership and representatives from Ghaziabad administration.
Commenting on the launch, Soi reaffirmed that, “With the commencement of operations at Max Oncology Tower, we wish to strengthen our commitment towards cancer treatment and research at Max Healthcare. We would combine our clinical strength with the top research institutions in India and on the world stage to lead cancer research efforts. In Vaishali alone, we have over 50 cancer specialists providing the most specialised treatment in a very comprehensive manner. We have introduced Disease Management Groups as well as invested in advanced technologies for comprehensive treatment of cancer patients.”
Chaturvedi commented, “Our focus on DMG based clinical practice with best technology and processes to improve experience for patients and doctors helps us attract the best professionals. Our DMG based tumour boards are already adding a healthy dimension to the level of planning for each treatment. Also, the dedicated wing for women will offer specialised care, quick diagnosis and staging, and personalised service to females of all age and backgrounds. We have ensured that close to 95 per cent hospital staff on this floor is women. Incidence of cancer is growing across India and it is crucial for us to fight the challenge comprehensively. We have a launched a campaign on lung cancer, the most lethal of all cancers, with focus on mass awareness, early diagnosis and specialised treatment. We’ll prepare similar strategies for other cancers and continuously evolve our cancer crusade.”
Col HS Chehal, Senior Director and Chief Operating Officer – Cluster 2, Max Healthcare, commented,“Max Healthcare has been at the forefront of cancer treatment across North India for over a decade. We take pride in our dedicated teams of clinicians and the state-of-the-art infrastructure and medical facilities. This dedicated tower at Vaishali adds to our combined oncology strength and we are sure that patients from across Delhi NCR and neighbouring cities and towns will benefit immensely.”
With the new ‘Disease Management Groups’ based approach, the oncology team of Max Healthcare is all set to provide comprehensive and optimal care for management of cancer. Owing to their specialised and targeted approach, these DMGs are dedicated to specific kinds of cancer and are better equipped to diagnose and offer customised and advanced care to the patient. Such an approach also ensures inclusivity and enables second opinions within the system, making the procedure intensive and effective at the same time.
