May 4, 2022

Land grant proposal sent for approval; to be handed over to Kidwai Memorial Hospital, says DC

Mysore/Mysuru: The  State-run Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology Cancer Research and Training Centre (KIMO), Bengaluru, is planning to set up a Peripheral Cancer Centre in Mysuru.

At present, the Kidwai Hospital functions from the K.R. Hospital in Mysuru as a small unit. This will be expanded to house a full-fledged Peripheral Cancer Centre and talks are on to sanction land for the project. Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha has already met the Kidwai authorities to discuss the proposal.

The Peripheral Cancer Centre will be set up with the Centre’s assistance and will provide succour and medical care to the patients who are spending the last days of their lives. The MP has asked the Mysuru District Administration to identify a suitable land for the cancer centre that is filled with greenery.

Scouting for the land, the district authorities have identified 18 acres at Dadadakallahalli in Mysuru Taluk and the proposal to hand over the land has been sent to the Revenue Department for approval. Dadadakallahalli is 24 kilometres from Mysuru city and is on the Hunsur Road                 (National Highway 275).

If the Department approves the proposal, the District Administration is ready to provide land, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Dr. Bagadi Gautham told Star of Mysore.

This is just the first stage and the Peripheral Cancer Centre will be established only after the land is sanctioned. “Once the land grant approval comes, we will start communicating with Kidwai authorities and extend our cooperation to set up the cancer centre,” the Deputy Commissioner said.

In the 2021-22 budget, Regional Cancer Treatment Centres in Mysuru and Shivamogga were announced at a cost of              Rs. 100 crore and they would be set up on the lines of KIMO. Soon after the announcement, Kidwai Institute took up the works for Mysuru Centre.

The institute has sought 10 acres for this purpose and another 50 acres for the proposed Cancer Research Centre. The Regional Cancer Centre was proposed to be a 350-bed hospital and all the facilities that are available at Kidwai Bengaluru were to be made available here in Mysuru. The Mysuru institute would cater to the needs of cancer patients from Mysuru, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, Hassan and Kodagu.
