The TMH research centre at Kharghar was set up 16 years ago, which is now being upgraded to the treatment centre as well to ease the burden on the Parel hospital which was set up in 1941.

The TMH at Parel treats 60,000 new patients every year and conducts around 10,000 major and minor surgeries.

The treatment of paediatric cancer will shift to Kharghar, the hospital official said.

Paediatric cancer patients who come from across the country face inconvenience at the Parel hospital because there is no facility for staying, he said.

The Tata Memorial Hospital was set up in 1941 by the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust. It was then an 80-bed facility with an annual budget of Rs five lakh.

Today it is one of Asia’s biggest centres for cancer treatment with 700 beds and the annual budget of about Rs 300 crore.
