“From 19th August, 2020 Kolkata , The OPD services will initially cater to patients of surgical and medical Oncology and shortly basic diagnostics facilities will be made available followed by Day care chemotherapy services.
Currently, the Institute is functioning from its existing campus at 37, S.P.Mukherjee Road, Kolkata 700026.
Named after Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, the Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute has been in the service of the nation since 1950, and is a premiere centre for cancer treatment and research in the Eastern region of the country. Keeping in view the burden of cancers and need for more facilities for affordable and quality cancer care services, it was decided to set up a much bigger facility in the form of a second campus of CNCI at Rajarhat in Kolkata. When fully functional, the second campus of CNCI will be a State of the Art 460 bedded cancer treatments centre, offering high quality and affordable treatment options to the people in various specialties of oncology.
Construction of the new campus of CNCI at Rajarhat has been jointly funded by the Government of India and Government of West Bengal ,majority share borne by Government of India.
With the OPD services starting from the new campus, the Institute will be able to cater to a larger number of cancer patients, thus ensuring improved access to affordable and quality treatment facilities for the people of the State and the region.”
