Telangana Health Minister Etala Rajender today inaugurated a new state-of-the-art oncology building at the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) in Panjagutta.
Speaking on the occasion, the minister said that the facility would help the people of the city to avail themselves of world-class cancer treatment facilities at the NIMS.
He also expressed his appreciation for the sponsors of the new building, the Megha Engineering Company Limited (MEIL), who had bankrolled the development of the oncology department's facilities at a cost of Rs 18 crore.
MEIL had undertaken the task of enhancing the oncology building as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program after the company's chairman P P Reddy had made a promise to support the building's expansion in 2018.
Praising the company's efforts, Rajender said, "The MEIL management has delivered on the promise that its chairman P P Reddy had made during the inauguration of the oncology building's 18,000-square-feet second floor, also sponsored by the Megha group, in 2018. On the occasion, Mr Reddy had promised to develop the ground and the first floors of the cancer ward by equipping the floors with the latest facilities. This demonstrates the group's praiseworthy commitment to giving back to society. Today, due to the group's efforts, the new oncology wing is comparable to that of any corporate hospital."
The new facility houses 50 beds with oxygen facilities for every second bed, ventilators and lifts so that it can deal with the medical emergencies of cancer patients seamlessly. It also has separate male, female and pediatric wards, as well as an exclusive leukamia ward, and an ICU that has the latest oxygen and vacuum pressure facilities. The wing is also equipped with air-conditioning, LED lights, CC cameras and numerous nursing stations, and also has dedicated staff rooms, and rooms to address storage and processing needs.
The sponsors, MEIL chairman P P Reddy and director Sudha Reddy, were also present at the inauguration.
