Kolkata's healthcare landscape is about to see a significant boost with Ruby General Hospital's ambitious expansion plans and cutting-edge technology advancements. The esteemed NRI hospital, known for its exceptional care, is gearing up to become the largest standalone facility of its kind in Eastern India.

Scaling Up to Meet Growing Needs

Ruby General Hospital takes pride in its independence and commitment to serving Kolkata, Bengal, and beyond. This dedication is evident in their significant expansion plans. By the end of 2024, the hospital will see an impressive 200-bed increase, bringing its total capacity to 556 beds. Their vision doesn't stop there; an additional 200 beds are planned for 2025, solidifying their position as Kolkata's leading NRI hospital. This expansion will cater to the growing demand for high-quality healthcare in the region, offering more patients access to advanced medical services.

Revolutionizing Cancer Care

The news gets even better for Kolkata's residents, especially those battling cancer. Ruby Cancer Center, a unit of Ruby General Hospital, is introducing a groundbreaking technology – the Varian TrueBeam Linear Accelerator, Version 3.0. This cutting-edge equipment boasts the most user-friendly and advanced contouring system, along with the Eclipse version 18 planning system. This translates to more precise and efficient radiation treatment for cancer patients, offering a beacon of hope in their fight against the disease.

Ensuring Accessible Blood Transfusions

Another significant addition to Ruby General Hospital's services is the official inauguration of their Blood Centre. This new facility addresses a critical need by providing accessible and safe blood and blood products for the hospital and potentially other healthcare institutions in the region. The Blood Centre plays a crucial role in ensuring timely and life-saving blood transfusions for patients in need.

Prevention is Key

Dr. Kamal K Dutta, Chairman and Managing Director of Ruby General Hospital, emphasizes the importance of preventive oncology.  His message is a powerful reminder: simple cancer screening investigations like Pap Smear, Mammogram, Low Dose CT scan of chest (LDCT), Colonoscopy, and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) can be life-saving. By detecting cancer early, patients have a much higher chance of successful treatment.

Ruby General Hospital's expansion and technological advancements are a welcome development for Kolkata. It signifies the hospital's unwavering commitment to providing exceptional care to the community while ushering in a new era of advanced medical services in Eastern India.
