Introduction Features Why Visit HCG Day Care Centre? Services Offered Specialists Locations
HCG’s Day Care Centre is well-equipped and is ideally designed for those patients, who
have been advised chemotherapy sessions. Treatment at Day Care Centre allows the
patients to walk home the same day of chemotherapy infusion – this saves both time and
resources for the patients.
Day care chemotherapy is a relatively new concept in India. HCG is one of the first
cancer hospitals to understand its importance and make this service accessible to its
patients. In most cases, chemotherapy patients do not even require a bed and can receive
treatment on a private couch or in a common lounge in an aesthetic setting, often while
reading, watching television or scrolling over their phones.
As a full-fledged and specialised Day Care Centre, it has a 360-degree approach towards
promoting wellness of cancer patients and survivors.
At our Day Care Centre, patients can consult skilled and experienced medical oncologists
in an ambient treatment setting with the immense support from our able team of
specialised onconurses and RMOs.
Features of HCG Day Care Centre
Right Information and the Best Treatment:
The medical oncologists at our Day Care Centre will have multiple discussions with the
patients and the caregivers to provide sufficient information about the treatment,
possible after-effects and the follow-ups.
Through our skilled expertise and personalised treatment plans, we focus on delivering
the right treatment, the first time.
Comfortable Treatment Setting:
HCG’s Day Care Centre is a one-of-a-kind treatment facility that has spacious and
comforting treatment and waiting areas. There is no hurry, urgency or confusion. Every
patient’s chemotherapy sessions are well planned ahead. They are assigned a bed/recliner
as soon as they walk into the centre.
Care and Support by Specialised Onconurses:
Onconurses are specialised nurses, who are skilled to support care delivery for
chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. These nurses are fully aware of the suffering
and discomfort that the cancer patients go through and are trained to provide extra care
and attention during those times.
Majority Would Not Require Overnight Treatment:
Chemotherapy is delivered as a day care procedure, which implies that patients receive
their treatment and leave for their home on the same day. The recent advances in the
field of chemotherapy have made it possible for specialists to make the sessions more
convenient and less daunting for the patients.
These centres are also ideal to deliver novel therapies in oncology, such as
immunotherapy and hormonal therapy.
A Dedicated Cytotoxic Drug Mixing Cabinet:
HCG’s Day Care Centre has a dedicated cytotoxic drug mixing cabinet to prevent spillage
and contaminations during the mixing. This ensures safe administration of chemotherapy
Apart from chemotherapy, our Day Care Centre also houses an onco-diagnostic lab that
offers all major diagnostic modalities from blood tests to biopsies.
Why Visit HCG Day Care Centre?
Zero to Minimal Disruption of the Routine:
Each session may take between 1-8 hours depending upon the treatment plan
devised. And, these sessions do not demand the patients to get admitted.
Therefore, the routines of these patients are hardly disturbed.
Reduced Travelling Burdens:
Our Day Care Centre could reduce the travelling burdens for patients, who visit
far-off hospitals for their chemotherapy sessions. With the care made available
closer to their home, patients can comfortably attend their treatment sessions.
Hassle-Free and Less Time-Consuming:
Since our Day Care Centre focuses only on chemotherapy or other medical
oncology sub-specialities, such as hormone therapy and immunotherapy. The entire
procedure, from the registration to the discharge, is made hassle-free, flexible
and time saving.
Reduced Financial Burdens:
By delivering the treatment on outpatient / day care basis and bringing care
closer to home, our Day Care Centres make cancer treatment more economical and
less taxing for the patients.
Reduced Risk of Hospital-Acquired Infections:
Chemotherapy patients, in most cases, are immune-compromised. Despite the
utmost care taken, hospitals are associated with certain infection risks, which
could possibly be due to the large influx of the patients, availability of
treatment for various health problems, etc. However, this is not the case at our
Day Care Centres, since it only caters to chemotherapy patients and follows
strict hygienic practices, and hence the risk of infections is drastically
Cancer patients can recover well in the comfort of their home. Having the near
dear ones around can positively impact a patient’s outlook towards the disease
treatment. By delivering chemotherapy as an outpatient / day care procedure,
treatments and services at our Day Care Centres may positively impact the
among the patients.
