"Assam can now say …": Ratan Tata regarding the opening of a new cancer center
Tata Trust Chairman Ratan Tata said Thursday that a network of 17 cancer treatment centers in Assam will allow everyone to be treated because they are not “rich illnesses.”
Regarding the opening of these seven centers, Tata said Assam would be recognized as a state equipped with facilities to provide world-class cancer treatment.
“Today is an important day in Assam’s history. Higher levels of medical facilities for cancer treatment that were not previously available in the state are being brought here. Cancer is not a rich disease.” He said.
“Assam can now be said to have world-class cancer treatment facilities even in a small state in India,” Tata added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took this opportunity to open seven cancer treatment centers and laid the foundations for seven more cancer treatment centers during the program.
These centers are being developed by the Assam Cancer Care Foundation (ACCF), a joint venture between the state government and Tata Trusts. Three other hospitals under the network will open later this year.
