Hassan, March 18, 2018: Cytecare Cancer Hospital, Bengaluru, today announced their partnership with SSM Hospital, Hassan, as part of their Hub-and-Spoke initiative. Through this partnership, Cytecare and SSM will offer specialized oncology services, including consultation, chemotherapy and Comprehensive surgery at Hassan. With the district witnessing heavy burden of cancer (such as Cervix, Oral, among others) and a shortage of specialized oncology care and treatment, this association will help ease the burden on the healthcare system.
Cytecare’s team of specialized oncologists will ensure people of Hassan receive the right guidance, accurate diagnosis, and the best possible approach to fight cancer, in their very home town. With this outreach initiative, Cytecare will be reaching out to tier II and III cities and plans to offer cancer care with advanced technology in surgical and radiation oncology along with tumor board specialist.
In collaboration with SSM Hospital, Cytecare will also be setting up specialized oncology facilities at SSM Hospital, which will comprise an Onco – Consultation Clinic, Chemotherapy wards, a comprehensive surgical unit, Intra-Operative Image guidance systems for advanced surgeries, Adult Critical Care unit, Rehabilitation support, Radiology & Diagnostics, Cancer Screening & Vaccines clinic and Onco Nursing.
Cytecare’s organ-site approach to treatment will improve outcomes and provide patients with access to the Tumor Board; which follow Gold Standard guidelines for cancer treatment. Their patient-centric approach offers professional counseling services for the patients and the family at both psychological and emotional level.
Addressing the media, Suresh Ramu, Co-founder, and COO, Cytecare Cancer Hospitals, said “We are delighted to partner with SSM Hospital in offering Cytecare’s expert Oncology services in the city of Hassan. Through this partnership, SSM will function as an outreach center for Cytecare that would allow us to offer organ-site Oncology expertise, thus helping patients saves on potential travel time and associated costs. We also plan on setting up a Chemotherapy center under the expert guidance of Cytecare tumor board and medical oncologists. Only in cases of specialized medical procedures such as PET CT, advanced radiology, complex surgeries and radiation therapy will the patient have to travel to Cytecare Bengaluru. SSM Hospital, Hassan, is the first unit in Karnataka to be part of Cytecare‘s hub and spoke model. SSM has been offering excellent treatment for patients and specializes in Neurology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Joint replacements, Reproductive Medicine, to name a few.

These partnerships will help reach more people in their own city, without patients traveling miles to get treated. Cytecare will also offer training programs to nurses, radiologist, among others for the smooth treatment process.
