The society came into existence
The Cachar Cancer Hospital Society came into existence in 1992 because of the vision of a group of citizens who came together as a result of a desperately felt need for a cancer hospital (since the only cancer hospital in the entire north east was in far away Guwahati). The Society had three principal objectives: (1) to make people aware of cancer, adopt preventive measures and seek early detection (2) to establish a full-fledged cancer hospital to provide meaningful services to all suffering people and (3) to set up a cancer research centre.
The hospital was inaugurated
Public philanthropy helped in the construction of the Cachar Cancer Hospital & Research Centre on the land (11 bigha) allotted by the Government of Assam. The foundation stone of the hospital was laid by the late Mr. Hiteshwar Saikia, the then Chief Minister of Assam. The hospital was inaugurated on February 10, 1996.
