Expanding Footprint in Kolkata
In a major development St. Judes has entered into an agreement with the Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata whereby they have assigned two floors in Premashraya, their patients' Home away from Home, to St. Judes to set up two Centres with 50 units for child patients who are taking treatment for cancer at the Tata Medical Centre.
This agreement is a significant endorsement of the services we have been providing to children with cancer. While it brings us the joy of being able to give our best to the most needy, it also means additional responsibilities for the organisation and the opportunity to rein in paediatric cancer and make a substantial difference to the lives of poor families in rural and semi-urban India.
Premashraya is a 525-bedded home near the hospital, set up at DC-193/1, New Town, Rajarhat, Kolkata 700 156, to house the outpatients and families of patients who undergo treatment at TMC.
Premashraya has been planned as a Basement + Ground + 10 floors structure and includes parking, elevators for patients and visitors, treated water supply and adequate fire management systems.
