    MNJ Cancer Hospital in Hyderabad has become the second-largest cancer hospital in the country’s public sector with 750 beds and different specialties, including a pediatric oncology wing. The hospital has a new facility of a 300-bedded hospital coming up at Nampally. Union Minister G Kishan Reddy and State Health Minister T Harish Rao inaugurated the new oncology block at MNJ Cancer Institute. Aurobindo Pharma spent Rs 80 Crore for constructing the building and handed it over to the government, which has provided all the facilities, including equipment at the hospital with Rs 60 crore.

    MNJ Cancer Hospital has different specialties, a special women’s wing, and a pediatric wing. It also has a teacher and a librarian to ensure that the education of children who take treatment in the pediatric wing would not get affected. The hospital has a special ward for bone marrow cancer treatment available in NIMS and MNJ Hospitals. It would provide medicines free of cost for the entire life of the patients under the Aarogyasri scheme.

    Telangana spent Rs 800 Crore under Arogyasri cancer treatment and during the previous year Rs 137 crores were spent only on cancer patients. Soon, chemotherapy and radiotherapy would be available in districts for cancer patients. Harish Rao alleged that previous governments had neglected healthcare and did not provide health services to the growing population. He said that the government was striving for 10,000 super specialty beds in the State within one year by starting four super specialty hospitals in four corners of the city in the name of TIMS (Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences) and also a health city in Warangal.

    Telangana would have 55 medical colleges this year, up from 20 in 2014. The government started 35 new medical colleges in nine years. Aurobindo Pharma Foundation CMD K Nityananda Reddy said that the handing over of the oncology block to the government was a testament to the commitment to supporting infrastructure development in the public health domain to aid the needy. Nampally MLA Zafar Hussain, MLC Prabhakar, TSMSIDC Chairman, Errolla Srinivas, and others were also present.
