Boundless In Service

Dr Ravi Kannan’s Vision

On average, India sees the death of 7,84,821 cancer patients every year. The high mortality rate is due to late detection and inaccessibility to affordable treatment.

Our director and head surgeon, Dr Ravi Kannan, worked previously at the Cancer Institute (WIA), Chennai. Moved by the plight of the people who desperately needed cancer care in Assam, he moved with his family to take cancer care closer to the people there.

Taking Cancer Care Closer To The Patients

His vision was to make cancer care affordable in the Barak Valley, where the closest cancer hospital was 300km away.

Over the last 13 years, Dr Kannan and his team have transformed the rural cancer centre into a full-fledged hospital and research centre. His endeavours cover providing housing, food, employment, awareness, and education are part of a holistic approach to cancer treatment. His innovations include doorstep healthcare services, free home visits and satellite clinics.

Padma Shri From The Indian Government

His wholehearted work with cancer patients over these years won him India’s 4th highest civilian award, The Padma Shri. Dr Ravi Kannan received this honour on 26 January 2020 from Shri Ram Nath Kovind, the Honorable President of India, at Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi, India.

The ceremony was attended by Shri Narendra Modi, Shri Amit Shah and Shri Venkaiah Naidu among several others.

Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Centre is proud to be led by a visionary whose service knows no bounds!

Why Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Centre

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in India. Early detection and education are as imperative as treatment. At Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, we deem it our duty to educate and spread awareness about cancer, as much as we prioritize treatment.
