SummaryHCG Enterprises is the largest network of oncology hospitals in South Asia. It functions using a hub and spoke model.
In HCG's view, each oncology center must act as a model of excellence, a place where physicians can achieve professional fulfillment and provide breakthroughs in patient care. HCG is committed to creating an environment that fosters professional and personal achievements of each person who crosses the threshold of one of its centers. By sharing these achievements across the network, the achievements of each center, each physician, and each hospital are heightened.
Key program components
HCG is a doctors-led initiative with over 150 partnering physicians at independently functioning centers of the HCG network. Some centers focus on niche programs while others provide a full suite of services, but each benefits from the approach of bringing the core aspects of care together.
HCG affiliated cancer centers provide holistic care for a patient including:
- A multidisciplinary physician team
- The latest diagnostic and treatment options
- Cutting edge technology
- Psychosocial support services
- A healing environment
- Clinical trial options.
As a part of Corporate citizenship program, the HCG Foundation was founded in 2002 to help ensure that no cancer patient will be turned away from treatment. It adopts various methods to make medical care affordable such as giving concessions on ward nursing charges, treating patients through HCG Foundation Fund and providing free medicines through pharmaceutical company tie-ups.
HCG has also introduced an EMI scheme (monthly instalments) for the patients who cannot afford to pay all at once. Patients are allowed to pay 25 percent as down payment and 75 percent in installments. As collateral for this, post-dated checks are received from the patient.
HCG foundation has also created an art gallery called Swasti-Art for cancer care, where the goal is to spread public awareness of cancer and appreciate the role of art in society. The funds raised through this art gallery are being used to support cancer patients. A separate space has been provided to display art in the hospital.
