Nagpur: The ultra modern modular operation theatre was inaugurated at Rashtrasant Tukdoji Regional Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (RST-RCH), in city at the hands of Dr Rajiv Bore, Vice Chancellor, DMIMS, Sawangi Meghe, Wardha on Monday.
The inauguration of ultra modern modular operation theatre is part of the upgrading project under an initiative by Ministry of Health, Government of India, to convert all existing RCC (Regional Cancer Centres) in the country to TCCC (Tertiary Cancer Care Centre) under the NPCDCS scheme. Surgeries undertaken in such a theatre would be a lot more safer for the patients and the surrounding very ambient for the surgeons and anaesthetists
Dr Rajiv Borle on the occasion appreciated the work which RST hospital has been doing for cancer patients since last 45 years. Dr Subhrajit Dasgupta in his remarks assured that “RST-RCH in coming couple of years will have a modern new 200 bedded hospital with all departments and facilities to tackle all types of cancer patients. Within the constraints of finances our hospital is marching towards a goal, where all patients are treated free of charge in all specialties.”
Dr B K Sharma, Joint Director, RST-RCH told Nagpur Today that, “This OT will help in performing severe surgeries with ease and it will also result in saving time. Earlier we had to sterilize entire OT manually before starting any operation which was quite time consuming exercise. The ultra modern modular OT has self sterilizing quality, which minimizes infection rate and saves time.”
From Cancer Relief Society, MLA Sunil Kedar, Vice President, Ashok Kriplani, Secretary, Dr Ramkrishna Chhangani, Joint Secretary, Awatram Chawla, Treasurer, were present on this occasion along with members of RST Cancer Hospital.
