Vishwas News

Hyderabad, May 24:Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD), K. T. Rama Rao urged greater co-ordination and co-operation between public and private health care sector to spread awareness on the importance of cancer prevention in the State.
Inaugurating a high-end Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU), a Novalis TX RapidArc based radiation facility at Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital & Research Institute (BIACH&RI), the Minister said the State government was in the process of waiving property tax for all the Trust-based institutions.
"We are also open to construct shelters for large number of patients visiting this facility from across the State. The Chief Minister has already waived-off property tax for the Basavatarakam Cancer Hospital. To spread awareness, celebrities from all walks of life too should come forward," Rao said.
Speaking on the occasion, Telugu actor and Chairman of BIACH&RI, Nandamuri Balakrishna thanked the Minister for visiting the hospital and inaugurating the BMT unit. "The hospital which started with just 40-bed strength has come a long way in providing quality cancer care treatment facilities to the poor," he said.
According to hospital officials, the BMTU facility is also equipped with PET-CT along with Cyclotron, Gama Camera etc. Essentially, the BMTU is an advanced treatment centre for patients struggling with rare type of cancers that require transplantation of bone marrow.
The facility is built by using latest, advanced technologies along with pressure rooms equipped with HEPA (high-e efficiency particulate air) filter systems to fully control infections.
