Peerless Hospital & B K Roy Research Centre, a leading multispecialty hospital in Eastern India is launching the SK Roy Institute of Oncology Services (SRIOS) to provide holistic healthcare for cancer patients. SRIOS will be a state-of-the-art facility with all the specialty departments and multiple cancer screening programs to help in early detection of the disease.
Peerless Hospital management has decided to enhance its services as a premier multispecialty hospital in the city of Kolkata. The services currently provided by the hospital for the cancer patients are fragmented and require help from other institutions, particularly when any patient requires radiotherapy. To address this, Peerless has set up SRIOS which will have the following departments: Surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, well-run day-care centre, research department, preventive oncology, pain and palliative care, multi-specialty back up, nuclear medicine (PET -CT scan).
Besides making provision for treatment of cancer patients, SRIOS will also provide facilities to detect early cancer by a variety of cancer screening programs. For example, this will include breast screening by mammography and cervical smear for cervical cancer screening programs for female patients. Physical examination of oral cavity, chest x-ray, endoscopic examination, ultrasonography, certain blood tests may also constitute various screening programmes.
Commenting on the initiative, Jayanta Roy – managing director of the Peerless Group said, “The healthcare sector will provide immense opportunities for us. As a leading hospital in Kolkata, we are excited to be part of that opportunity, and in that process, serve hundreds of thousands of patients. Peerless has always been associated with ‘trust’ and ‘credibility’, and we will continue to build on that foundation through our initiatives in Peerless Hospital.”
With a strong focus on technology and innovation, Peerless Hospital is making significant efforts in leveraging digital to enhance their services for patients. The hospital has recently launched a platform for online report downloading from the convenience of the home. A program to collect pathological samples from the patients’ homes has also been initiated.
Dr. Sujit Karpurkayastha, managing director, Peerless Hospital said, “Construction of SRIOS is expected to be completed by the end of December 2024 and we should start accepting patients from the first half of 2025. This centre will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology and will provide the highest quality of treatment for cancer patients. Trust, transparency, and ethics will continue to be at the core of services and the centre will uphold the values synonymous with the Peerless brand. Establishing this cancer unit has been a dream of the late SK Roy, who himself had won a battle against bowel cancer and it will be our mission to imbibe his indomitable spirit to the patients who will be seeking treatment here. Besides providing treatment, the centre will remain engaged in clinical research in a pursuit to constantly improve patient care and outcome. There is no doubt that SRIOS will become the safest destination for cancer patients in Eastern India.”
The hospital is in the process of hiring a highly experienced project director with deep expertise in running oncology facilities.
Part of the Peerless Group – an Indian business conglomerate, Peerless Hospital is one of the oldest hospitals on EM Bypass, Kolkata. The hospital has been serving patients with passion and dedication for almost 30 years. Being at the forefront of Covid treatment and vaccination, the hospital serves almost 3 lakh patients a year across all departments. As part of a group-wide transformation program, Peerless Hospital has taken several steps to provide world-class facilities to serve patients in the years to come.
