The Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) is all set to introduce an exclusive daycare centre and outpatient facility for cancer patients in the next few weeks. A highly advanced 50-bed day cancer care centre with chemotherapy facility for walk-in patients will be available for poor cancer patients from across the State.

This is for the first time that the quasi State-run NIMS hospital is providing a daycare facility for cancer patients. A plush and comfortable environment is being developed from scratch in the cellar and first floor of the hospital’s medical oncology wing, so that daycare facilities like chemotherapy can be administered to the cancer patients.

“Patients will have access to extremely comfortable environment in a well-designed facility for taking medication under expert observation. They will be observed for a few hours and if their health permits, can be discharged also. Such a facility will set a new standard in cancer care in government hospitals in Telangana,” Director, NIMS, Dr K Manohar said.

While the cellar will have a daycare facility, the first floor will have high-end outpatient facility along with seminar rooms and other much needed facilities for the faculty at the Medical Oncology wing of the hospital.

About two years ago, noted Hyderabad-based infrastructure company, Medha Engineering and Infrastructures Limited (MEIL), single-handedly redeveloped the entire Medical Oncology wing of NIMS by contributing Rs 10 crore.

The oncology wing was literally re-designed over an area of 18,000 square feet with four wards including five ICUs. The sophisticated oncology wing now has nearly 50 beds, which also includes five ICU beds along with four wards with a break-up of 12 beds for male, 10 for women, 11 beds for paediatric and 12 for leukaemia patients.

“Since MEIL had already contributed so much to develop the upper floors of the oncology wing, we urged them to take up the cellar and first floor. They immediately accepted to take up the works. We are extremely grateful to MEIL for the gesture,” Dr Manohar said.
