A group of concerned relatives and friends of cancer patients felt the need to provide complete cancer treatment under one roof. They felt it was their Dharma (duty) to provide to cancer patients what was not available to their near and dear ones when they suffered with cancer. They laid the Shila (foundation) of their duty by registering a non-government voluntary organization - Dharamshila Cancer Foundation and Research Centre (DCFRC) on 19 April 1990, with the sole objective of making cancer treatment available, accessible and afforadable.
DCFRC Commissioned the first phase of the hospital with 100 beds in 1994 and expanded to 300 beds in 2006 DHRC provides preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, rehabilitative, palliative and support services under one roof. Responding to the healthcare needs of the community all other allied services like Neurosurgery, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, Dental and Faciomaxillary Surgery, Orthopaedics, Gastroenterology, Nephrology and Urology etc. were added. DHRC is continuously adding cutting edge technologies, practicing evidence based medicine and following international treatment protocols, to achieve best treatment outcomes. High quality standards of treatment, complete patient safety and satisfaction, improving cure rates and adding quality to life will always be our hallmark.
The hospital has evolved into North India′s premier cancer institute, treating all types of cancers and is one of the first to explore gene therapy. Being sensitive to the physical, medical, emotional and financial needs of the patients, DHRC serves them with love, devotion, compassion, committment and postitive attitude. Transparent and honest billing policies and above mentioned factors have helped us to win our patients and expand our referral base to all over India and Neighbouring countries. To add to the pool of trained and skilled manpower, we were first in India to start three years full time doctorate course - DNB Medical Oncology in 2002, DNB Surgical Oncology in 2003 and Post Basic Diploma in Oncology Nursing in 2010.
