To enable access to comprehensive cancer care across North East India
Technology-driven, oncology-focussed, managed healthcare platform, Karkinos Healthcare Private Limited (KHPL) has launched its cancer care services in Manipur. Its wholly owned subsidiary Karkinos Healthcare North East Private Limited is establishing a world-class Greenfield Comprehensive Cancer Care Hospital at Imphal, thereby optimising the medical resources and infrastructure in collaboration with JNIMS and with support and guidance from the Government of Manipur. The Comprehensive Cancer Care Institute will be operational at the earliest.
While the Comprehensive Cancer Care is being operationalised, Karkinos Healthcare has launched its OPD and Day Care Chemotherapy Centre at JNIMS Campus, 25 Soibam Leikai, Porompat, Imphal East District, Manipur.
The centre will be under the supervision of the following Karkinos Healthcare Clinicians: Dr (Prof) GS Moirangthem, Director – CEO, Senior Surgical Specialist, Karkinos Healthcare, Manipur; Dr Sourabh Radhakrishnan, Senior Consultant and Director, Medical and Precision Oncology, Karkinos Healthcare, Manipur and Dr Y Indibor Singh, Head – Radiation Oncology, Karkinos Healthcare, Manipur.
“In Manipur, this kind of comprehensive cancer care, considering the challenges of the geographical region, will be seen for the first time. We would attempt to reach the maximum eligible population not just in this state, but also the neighbouring states, for risk assessment and screening through a variety of mediums, including community outreach through local resources and like-minded organisations, as well as digital channels,” says Dr (Prof) GS Moirangthem, Director – CEO, Senior Surgical Specialist, Karkinos Healthcare.
Envisioning the need to expand Karkinos Healthcare in North East India, Dr. Moni Kuriakose, Co-Founder and Medical Director, Karkinos Healthcare, said, “Our pilot programmes launched and implemented in Kerala and West Bengal, in partnership with several health facilities have seen early successes, and now we expand our operations in Manipur to drive comprehensive cancer care solutions in the Northeast geography. Early detection and diagnosis while providing better access to quality care will help reduce not just the financial burden of individuals, but improve the care pathway support, and eventually the quality of life among patients and caregivers.”
