Chief minister B S Yeddyurappa on Friday inaugurated a new out–patient block (OPD) at the Kidwai Institute of Oncology. The block will bring muchneeded relief to cancer patients who had to literally jostle for foot–space in the existing OPD.

The new out–patient block constructed and donated by Sree Kshetra Dharmasthala Manjunatheswara Medical Trust was completed in flat 15 months.

Dharmadhikari of Sree Kshetra Dharmasthala Manjunatheswara Medical Trust Veerendra Hegde said: “Earlier, access to medicine and treatment were difficult and expensive. With advances in medical science, cancer is curable today, and our effort is to create access to patients.”

Medical education minister Ramachandra Gowda stressed on health insurance and on adopting preventive measures to control cancer by having good lifestyle and proper food habits.

The Block has
  • Five male and female wards which can accommodate 125 inpatients
  • Seven minor air–conditioned operation theatres
  • Seventeen out–patient consultation rooms
  • A mini conference hall and telemedicine unit
  • Two lifts and ramps, oxygen and vacuum facilities
