Management control of B Barooah Cancer Institute by Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.


Tata Trusts, India’s leading business conglomerate with over US$103 Bn in revenues is also one of the one of the oldest grant bestowing foundations. The Trust has developed and used endowments to sustain mission-driven institutions that influence positive change in society


As per a recent observation, a large number of patients from the North-East travel to Mumbai, Chennai, and Vellore seeking treatment for Cancer care due to non-availability of a comprehensive Cancer Centre in the North-Eastern States.

Reports suggested that in CMC Vellore, 25% patients are from NE.

Similarly, leading Hospitals in Chennai were seeing almost 30% of their patients come from North East.

To address this scenario, the Chief Minister of Assam, requested the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) that the Dr. B Barooah Cancer Center be taken over by Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.

Tata Trusts entrusted the job to evaluate BBCI to recommend the interventions required to transform the Hospital to a comprehensive Cancer care Center and to estimate the financial outlay.
