Saroj Gupta Cancer Center and Research Institute
Thakurpukur, West Bengal
The Saroj Gupta Cancer Center and Research Institute (SGCCRI), formerly known as the Cancer Centre Welfare Home and Research Institute, was founded by Dr. Saroj Gupta in 1973. Dr. Saroj Gupta was a radiotherapist and after seeing the plight of many cancer patients, he decided to form a cancer centre that would serve as both a sanctuary and high quality medical institution for underprivileged patients. The hospital now had 280 beds and is set within a welcoming and child-friendly atmosphere that provides a contrast to the ongoing chemotherapy treatments and surgeries. We currently have one pediatric oncology project at this site.
