HealthCare Global Enterprises Ltd, headquartered in Bangalore and South Asia's largest Cancer Care Provider, is the only

dedicated cancer care network with quality care across 18 centers. It gives hope to over 25,000 new patients every year. It is also the recognized leader in cancer care for over 20 years.

We do extensive research and develop innovative treatment methods to provide the finest cancer care. This is supported by the most advanced technology to make cancer a manageable health condition and improve the quality of life of patients. It is our goal and commitment that one day India will be free from the agony of cancer. Below, I have provided a brief overview of some of our important services we offer: 1. Centre for Breast Health: The following are the facilities at HCG Center for Breast Health - High-Tech Lab - Digital Mammogram - PET-CT (High Slice CT Scanner) - Conformal Radiation - Genetic testing and Counseling - All types of Reconstructive Breast Surgeries - Clinical trials with newer drugs

2. CyberKnife: It is the world's first non-invasive whole body robotic radiosurgery system available at HCG. CyberKnife offers patients new hope for the treatment of tumors and lesions, including ones that previously have been diagnosed as inoperable or untreatable with the existing technology. CyberKnife uses state-of-the-art real-time image guidance, similar to cruise missile technology, to precisely target tumors anywhere in the body with pinpoint accuracy and delivers high doses of radiation. CyberKnife system features include:

Why CK a good treatment option:

First, the CyberKnife System uses image guidance software to track and continually adjust treatment for any patient or tumor movement. This sets it far ahead of other similar treatments. It allows patients to breathe normally and relax comfortably during treatment.

Second, some forms of radiosurgery require rigid head-frames that are screwed into the patient’s skull to minimize any movement. The CyberKnife System does not require such extreme procedures to keep patients in place, and instead relies on sophisticated tracking software, allowing for a much more comfortable and non-invasive treatment.

Third, unlike some radiosurgery systems, which can only treat tumors in the head, the CyberKnife System has unlimited reach to treat a broad range of tumors throughout the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas, and kidney.

And finally, the CyberKnife System’s treatment accuracy is unrivalled. Its ability to treat tumors with pin-point accuracy is unmatched by other radiation therapy and radiosurgery systems. The CyberKnife System can essentially “paint” the tumor with radiation allowing it to precisely deliver treatment to the tumor alone, sparing surrounding healthy tissue.

3. PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography) and Medical Cyclotron: HCG has installed a state of the art PET CT scanning facility and also a medical cyclotron facility. Medical cyclotron facility is the only cGMP facility in the country, thus providing cery high quality isotope production facility which will meet US FDA and EU norms. Cycltron and state of the art laboratory will produce variety of PET-Traces also called as radioactive molecules which will be used for diagnosis of various illnesses. PET CT scan is useful for...

Cancer: Cancer diagnosis, to asses tumor aggressiveness, To monitor success of therapy, to detect early any recurrent tumors, to provide a whole-body survey for cancer that may have spread, to identify benignand malignant growths, used for radioguided surgery, used for PET guided radiotherapy

Heart Disease: To determine what heart tissue is still alive following a suspected heart attack, to predict success of angioplasty (balloon, stent) or

bypass surgery, to determine if coronary arteries are blocked, PET guided evaluation for heart muscle viability (only center having this facility)

Brain Disorders: To diagnose Alzheimer's and other dementia, to determine the location of epileptic seizures prior to surgery, to diagnose movement disorders like Parkinsons' disease, to diagnose brain tumors and response to treatment

4. ARTISTE Solution: HCG makes cancer treatment more accurate, comfortable with minimum side-effects. Asia’s First IGRT with CT-on-Rails.

Features: High-precision CT-on-Rails for in-room 4D Gating in imaging and treatment 2D and 3D imaging for flexibility 3D Megavoltage cone beam imaging High resolution, accurate field shaping

Clinical benefits: High level of accuracy Minimized dose of healthy tissue, maximized dose to target

Board selection of imaging options Image-based target verification

5. Leukemia It’s a disease of the bone marrow, the part of the body that makes blood cells. In leukaemia the body makes too many abnormal white blood cells, which may cause  Infections  Anaemea  Excessive bleeding In recent years, major advances in treatment have been made.  Chemotherapy This involves the use of powerful drugs in various combinations to kill abnormal cells and/or slow their growth, giving normal cells a chance. In some cases, the drugs are given intravenously over a period of days.  Blood or Marrow Transplant Following high dose therapy for leukemia, healthy blood or marrow matched from a donor is injected into the patient’s bloodstream. The blood or marrow enters the bones and starts producing normal blood cells. In some cases, the patient’s own blood or marrow may be used.

Why partner with HCG: Development

Seeing a Vision Through

With HCG financial and logistical support, it is possible to create a centre that can change and grow with the evolving environment to keep you at the leading edge of care.

Taking a centre from its conception to realization requires a variety of very different kinds of resources, from financial to technological to staffing. With over 20 years experience successfully developing comprehensive cancer centres, HCG ability to apply those resources is unique.

Our singular focus has made us specialists in the science of developing and managing state-of-the-art facilities. We have learned that increased capacity comes through more streamlined operations, and the ability to develop new competencies is dependent upon having the resources to invest in them.

Managing the innumerable details of program development requires constant attention and a clear vision of the end state. Over the course of development, HCG can provide:

• • • • • • •

Facility and space planning Construction management Clinical program development Equipment recommendations IT implementation Physician staffing models Support of start-up operations

Management

Facilitating Achievement We create operational efficiencies and develop new programs and best practices that can benefit centers in our network. Our HCG centre management team coordinates research activities and supports the clinical work of physicians and researchers. We provide custom information technology solutions and billing systems; negotiate new contracts and volume discounts for pharmaceuticals and equipment to reduce overhead; and manage staffing issues and physician relations. But the greatest benefit our HCG management services provide the hospitals and physicians we work with is the reduction of administrative burdens. Our involvement makes it possible to increase the capacity and capabilities of the network centre, while reducing the operational burdens. HCG Management / Administration Services include:

1. • • • • •
