Dr. Ravi Kannan
A gold medalist and a visionary beyond par, Dr. Ravi Kannan is leveraging his medical expertise to turn a small cancer centre into a full-fledged hospital in Assam’s Barak valley.
Dr. Kannan is a surgical oncologist who was earlier heading department of Surgical Oncology in the prestigious Adyar Cancer Institute in Chennai. He was moved by the plight of economically impoverished people who had no access to even basic cancer treatment.
Relinquishing monetary accolades, he chose to dedicate his services to the Cachar Cancer Hospital & Research Centre in Silchar, Assam.
Currently serving as Director of the centre, his primary objective is to make state-of-the-art technology and cancer medical treatment available to the poor and needy. From merely 25 beds and 23 staff members, under Dr. Kannan’s leadership the hospital now boasts of 100 beds and a 200 member strong team.
Over the years, his drive to offer the best treatment possible to all patients, irrespective of their socio-economic status has witnessed the launch of several innovative measures. Some of these include ‘home visits’ and ‘satellite clinics’ to bring medical care to the doorstop of patients who are mostly daily wage-earners. In addition to this, the hospital now offers phone consultations for post treatment support and free food during the patient’s stay at the hospital.
Operating solely based on financial contributions from organizations and individuals, the hospital supports the underserved through cancer prevention, treatment, palliation, education and research. Under Dr. Kannan’s stewardship, the hospital has stepped up its plans to continually offer specialized and affordable cancer care to as many people as possible.
