RGCI & RC

Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre is an exclusive cancer care centre situated in New Delhi, India, set up by Indraprastha Cancer Society, a not-for-profit organisation, in 1996. The founders of the society are a group of distinguished socially responsible philanthropists, whose vision was to create a specialized cancer hospital, which offered Quality Cancer Care at affordable prices in North India.

Today, RGCI & RC is a 300 bed, stand-alone, super specialty cancer care centre, with state-of-the-art, diagnostic and therapeutic facilities, and world renowned faculty. The Institute currently admits over 20,000 patients annually. Having treated more than 1,70,000 patients since its inception, RGCI is now counted amongst the premier cancer treatment centres in the continent.

The wide range of services offered at RGCI & RC makes it a force to reckon with in tertiary super specialty onco-care. The facility boasts of 11 well equipped Operations Theatres, dedicated critical care beds including a 30 bed Surgical Intensive Care Unit, 28 bed Day Care, dedicated Thyroid Cancer Unit, a standalone Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, and an exclusive Leukemia Ward. Outpatient services are clustered around modality-specific dedicated OPD areas. The Institute houses advanced diagnostic facilities in its Imaging Centre and Laboratories.

The facility is equipped with most modern technology for cancer diagnosis and treatment, such as IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radio Therapy), IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy), Da Vinci Robotic system, PET Scan, Tomosynthesis, 128 slice-CT Scan and 1.5 T MRI.

The Institute also houses a revolutionary True Beam. Among the first such machines in India, this cutting edge technology targets cancer cells in tumors, even in moving organs with amazing precision while sparing the surrounding normal healthy tissues, making it a high precision treatment that can be delivered in a very short time.
