Dharamshila Cancer Hospital and Research Centre was a ground-breaking achievement. Until the early '90s, North India did not have a hospital to provide exclusive cancer care under one roof. Patients had to go either to the 25-bed cancer wing of AIIMS, New Delhi or the overcrowded Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai. Dharamshila Cancer Foundation was therefore registered as a NGO to start North India's first state-of-the-art comprehensive cancer care and research centre. Dharamshila Hospital and Research Centre is the first and only cancer hospital of India Accredited by NABH. Around 200-300 patients visit the hospital everyday. At present, the hospital has 50 full-time doctors and a panel of 60 visiting consultants in addition to 250 full-time and 150 outsourced employees. Since the new facilities were commissioned on October 20, 2007, about 100 additional employees have joined. It is North India's first and largest cancer hospital. It is the first cancer hospital of India Dharamshila Cancer Hospital`s mission is to become a leader in cancer treatment, cancer prevention, education, and research. Understanding that patients are supreme and they must be served with love and devotion, Dharamshila Hospital desires to fight and win the battle against cancer. iN 1999, Dharamshila Cancer Hospital and Research Center was accepted as a UICC associate member.
