The Sri Venkateswara Institute of Cancer Care and Advanced Research (SVICCAR) would come up on a 25-acre site allotted to the Tata Trusts.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu recently laid the foundation stone for a Rs 600 crore charitable state-of-the-art cancer care institute, to be set up in Andhra Pradesh by the Tata Trusts.
The Sri Venkateswara Institute of Cancer Care and Advanced Research (SVICCAR) would come up on a 25-acre site allotted to the Tata Trusts by the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD).
The TTD and the Tata Trusts had last year signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for setting up SVICCAR. The institute would come up with 376 beds at an investment of Rs 600 crore.
The institute would have facilities like radiation, holistic care and advanced research. The centre will strive to provide care to the patients without denying it to those with financial constraints.
