World of care

At RCHRC, holistic patient care encompasses everything we do. A proficient team of doctors, nurses, technicians and administrative staff ensures that patients receive compassionate care and services right from the time they walk in to the hospital. Our mission is to deliver the best possible outcome for each patient, based on treatment protocols guided by the National Cancer Grid (NCG).

Medical oncology

RCHRC’s expert team of consultants and oncology specialist nurses help offer best-in-class medical oncology services to patients. Equipped with a range of diagnostic facilities and advanced laboratory services, the hospital’s medical oncology wing provides comprehensive cancer diagnosis and treatment through chemotherapy, pain management and palliative care.

Radiation oncology

A state-of-the-art Linear Accelerator with SRS facility and a dedicated Brachytherapy facility at RCHRC’s radiation oncology department delivers targeted cancer treatment through doses of high-energy radiation that destroy cancer cells and ease disease-related symptoms.

The radiation oncology department is also equipped with 4D-CT and DIBH facilities for motion management of tumours during treatment. While the advanced SRS technology is used to treat brain metastasis, DIBH helps with breast and abdominal tumours and 4D-CT treats lung tumors.

These cutting-edge cancer treatment tools are ably supported by an expert and compassionate medical team that works towards effective management of the disease. The radiation oncology department also provides palliative radiation for all metastatic cases to reduce pain and to improve quality of life for the patients.

Surgical oncology

A highly qualified and trained team of medical professionals at the RCHRC surgical oncology department performs diagnostic, curative and preventive surgeries. The hospital has three modular Operation Theatres with the latest equipment to conduct open and minimal access surgeries.

The surgical oncology team works closely with the medical and radiation oncology departments to devise the best possible comprehensive treatment plan ensuring multidisciplinary care for patients. This is done by following evidence-based surgical principles, which are the standard of care in India’s leading oncology hospitals.

With proper pre-habilitation, pre-operative preparation, a dedicated anesthesia team and an intensive care unit, the team at RCHRC is geared to ease patients’ surgical journey with the least possible surgery-related side effects.

Pain and palliative care

The pain management department at RCHRC runs a pain clinic for patients with both acute and chronic conditions. The team helps the patients by alleviating and managing their pain, through local anaesthetics and other supportive medicines in case of acute pain and opioid prescriptions for chronic pain management.

Palliative care is a supportive function that aims to improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their care givers /family members, by managing the symptoms and treatment side effects. Palliative care therapists at RCHRC help patients and caregivers identify and better manage the physical, mental, emotional and social aspects of cancer care. This adds to the effectiveness of treatment as it can be started at any stage of the disease and may be continued through treatment, recovery and post care.


Comprehensive disease management is the guiding approach at RCHRC. This is done through accurate diagnosis and staging of the disease, which helps in planning treatment and monitoring how patients respond.

The radiology department at the hospital is managed by a qualified and dedicated team, and is equipped with an MRI-1.5 T Scanner along with machines for CT Scans, Digital Mammography, Digital X-Ray and Portable and High-end Ultrasonography. RCHRC also provides interventional radiology services in the form of USG-guided biopsies and FNAC.

Laboratory Services

Advanced technology tools, trained pathologists and technicians are key to disease diagnosis and treatment planning when it comes to cancer care. At RCHRC, our laboratory services are supported by the best-in-class technology equipment to conduct a variety of tests. These range from hematology, cytopathology, histopathology and molecular pathology to immunohistochemistry, biochemistry, frozen section biopsies, immunology and microbiology examinations.

Anaesthesia and Critical Care

The Onco-Anaesthesia department delivers anaesthesia and perioperative care to patients at RCHRC who are undergoing cancer surgeries, disease management procedures and Non-Operating Room Anaesthesia (NORA) during radiotherapy.

This division runs a Pre-Anaesthesia Check-up (PAC) clinic to assess patients for surgeries or procedures under anaesthesia. The modular operation theatres at the hospital are equipped with the latest devices for patient care such as modern anaesthesia workstations, gadgets for managing difficult airways, and vital parameter monitors during the perioperative period.

The critical care team at RCHRC handles a 10-bed ICU for managing critically ill cancer patients, along with isolation facilities for taking care of severely compromised neutropenic patients.


RCHRC has three kinds of specialist nursing professionals – Oncology Specialist nurses, Palliative Care nurses and Outreach nurses. Trained to immediately put patients and their families at ease, these specialist nurses are vital for quality and effective delivery of cancer care.

Our Oncology Specialist nurses are skilled in caring for patients undergoing all types of cancer treatments. They are competent in delivering evidence-based care, through need-based counselling for patients and their family members in coping with the illness and the after-effects of treatment, guiding them on the disease type, its treatment and rehabilitation requirements, and encouraging lifestyle modifications for cancer prevention and enhancing treatment effectiveness, among others.

Palliative care nurses provide supportive care to patients at RCHRC, and enable them in having a good quality of life. They educate patients and their family members on home care options and techniques for effective symptom management. Our Palliative Care nurses also assist in liaisoning with various community services agencies, and refer terminally ill patients to ensure continuity of care.

The Outreach nurses at RCHRC support the hospital’s public health team in conducting screening and awareness activities in the region. They help train frontline health workers on techniques for cancer screening and building awareness around the disease among local communities, encouraging lifestyle modifications for cancer prevention and enhancing the effectiveness of treatment.

Patient Navigators

To assist the patients in navigating through the treatment process, managing their appointments, completing medical forms and paper work, arranging hospital transportation, following up for regular tests and appointments, the hospital has patient navigators. The navigators are also instrumental in keeping a constant connect with patients and cancer suspects ensuring that they stay on with the treatment continuum.
