Chennai-based MIOT Hospitals is investing Rs 280 crore on a 600-bed 6-star facility for cancer treatment.

Called ‘MIOT International', the centre will specialise in cancer surgery, medical oncology, radio therapy, bone marrow transplant and nuclear medicine. The project is being funded by bank loans.

Construction by L&T is underway and the 13-floor centre, near the existing hospital in Chennai, is expected to be ready in 6-12 months. It will house 14 operation theatres, a bunker, a sterilisation unit, 500 premium rooms and 100 beds for critical care.

The centre promises to be of “international” standards, offering latest technology and premium service. The room charges will be double the current rates at MIOT.

“MIOT International will be a modern hospital; we have imported equipments, including a Rs 28-crore ‘True Beam' radio therapy machine from US manufacturer, Varian,” said Dr P.V.A. Mohandas, Chief of MIOT Hospitals.

Though MIOT International is not exclusively targeted at international patients, Dr Mohandas believes it will attract several people from all over the world. “Healthcare has become extremely expensive world over and it is still cheap in India,” said Dr Mohandas.

Around 100 doctors, primarily doctors from the US and UK looking to come back to India, have been hired for MIOT International.

The current bed-strength at MIOT Hospitals in Chennai is 500. It employs around 170 doctors.
