▴ sadar hospital
Abstract: Sadar Hospital in India, Ranchi is offering free cancer treatment, affirming its commitment to accessible healthcare. Through the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, patients can now access vital cancer treatments without financial barriers.

Sadar Hospital, located in Ranchi, India has recently announced that it will be offering free cancer treatment to patients under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme. This initiative is aimed at providing affordable healthcare to the underprivileged sections of society. The hospital has partnered with various healthcare providers to offer comprehensive cancer care services, including diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care.

The Ayushman Bharat Scheme, also known as Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana, is a flagship healthcare program launched by the Indian government in 2018. The scheme aims to provide health insurance coverage to over 100 million families in India, covering up to INR 5 lakh per family per year. The scheme covers a range of medical treatments, including cancer treatment.

Sadar Hospital's decision to offer free cancer treatment under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme is a significant step towards providing accessible and affordable healthcare to the underprivileged sections of society. Cancer treatment can be expensive, and many patients cannot afford it. This initiative will help bridge the gap and ensure that patients receive the necessary treatment without worrying about the financial burden.

Dr. Prabhat Kumar, the Civil Surgeon, has expressed the importance of this development in providing accessible healthcare for cancer patients in the area. Moreover, it will lighten the load on Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) and speed up patient treatments.

Dr. Gunjesh Kumar, a medical oncologist, stressed the importance of accessible treatment without financial roadblocks. To fulfill this commitment, a specific area with six beds is now dedicated to cancer patients within the hospital. Managing the care in this area will be three doctors: Dr. Navin Burnwal, Dr. Gunjesh, and Dr. Prakash Bhagat

In conclusion, Sadar Hospital's partnership with the Ayushman Bharat Scheme to offer free cancer treatment is a commendable effort towards providing affordable healthcare to the underprivileged sections of society. This initiative will undoubtedly benefit many patients and help improve their quality of life.
