Bihar and Jharkhand, together make up for a major chunk of the Hindi Heartland of India. With a population of about 13 crores, the two states have a burden of about 2.5 lacs cancer patients at any given time and approximately 80,000 new cancer patients are added every year to this pool. In comparison to the increasing number of cancer patients the existing few, and small cancer treatment units were highly inadequate to cater to their needs. This area was also lacking a comprehensive cancer centre for a long time where all the treatment facilities could be available under one roof.
Realising the huge burden of the cancer patients and lack of adequate treatment facilities in this part of India, the famous Mahavir Mandir Trust started the Mahavir Cancer Institute & Research Centre (MCSRC), at Patna for the first time. It is a comprehensive state-of-the art charitable cancer institute with all the treatment facilities under one roof. Located at Phulwarisharif, it is 2 KM from Patna airport and 7 KM from Patna Junction Railway Station. Mahavir Cancer Institute & Research Centre is an Institute endowed with spiritual blessings of heavenly powers. Within a short span of time it has become the Centre of Healing for cancer patients and has met the requirements of economically weaker sections of the society. The philosophy of MCSRC is to constantly strive towards excellence in Onco-care, through combination of latest technology, and competent personnel with human touch. High quality standards of treatment with complete patient’s satisfaction, improving their recovery rates and adding to their quality of life, will always be our hallmark. We take pride in touching and enriching lives with love, compassion, a positive attitude and following ethical practices based on transparency and accountability. This Institute is a health unit under Bihar State Religious Trust Board registered vide Reg. No. – 657 the Act 1950 (1st Rule of 1951) Section 34.
