Janakpur, June 10: The Binaytara Cancer Trust proudly announces that the building design for the 200-bed cancer hospital, Binaytara Cancer Hospital & Research Center (BCHRC), in Janakpur has been approved by the Janakpur Sub-Metropolitan City. This landmark project will serve not only Nepal but also India’s Bihar, providing much-needed cancer care in regions that currently lack adequate treatment facilities.

The new hospital will be constructed in Janakpur-25, a strategic location that addresses the absence of specialized cancer treatment in Madhesh Province, Nepal, and the deficiencies in quality healthcare services in Bihar, India. The hospital aims to deliver international-level cancer treatment services to the citizens of southern Nepal and northern India.

Dr. Binay Shah, President of the Binaytara Foundation, emphasized the foundation’s commitment to excellence in healthcare: “Our goal is to build a world-class cancer hospital for the needy, ensuring no compromises are made. With the approval of the building design, we are accelerating our efforts to start construction after the monsoon season.”

The hospital’s design has been crafted by Fong & Chan Architects (FCA), a San Francisco-based architectural firm known for their expertise in hospital construction. FCA’s notable projects include the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center and the California Northstate University Medical Center.

In conjunction with the hospital’s construction, the Binaytara Foundation has been actively running cancer treatment and awareness programs in Madhesh Province. Since 2018, a 25-bed cancer hospital on Kapileshwar Road, Janakpur, has been operational, providing essential facilities such as chemotherapy, surgery, an ICU, and a lab. This facility also houses Janakpur’s first histopathology lab.

The foundation continues to collaborate with local NGOs on cancer awareness initiatives. Recently, a public notice invited local NGOs to partner with the foundation in spreading cancer awareness within the community.

Dr. Shah reiterated the foundation’s holistic approach to the project: “Our vision is to make the new 200-bed hospital a model in physical infrastructure, technological advancements, and skilled human resources. Every aspect, from the hospital’s design to its construction on approximately 2.7 hectares (4 bighas) of land, has been meticulously planned.”

The construction of the hospital is expected to stimulate economic activity, enhance health awareness, and improve treatment options in Madhesh Province. “With the passing of the design, we are one step closer to realizing our goal of establishing an international cancer hospital in Janakpur,” Dr. Shah stated.

The Binaytara Foundation, a US-registered non-profit organization, is a global cancer non-profit with a mission to improve healthcare in resource-poor communities and enhance cancer care worldwide by educating healthcare providers and community members, advocating for better access to care, and innovating program models and services to improve access to healthcare. A leader in continuing medical education (CME) and cancer congresses in the United States, the Foundation has successfully collaborated with governments, non-profits, and hospitals to execute major global oncology programs. The foundation’s notable efforts in Nepal include supporting the establishment of the first bone marrow transplant center at Civil Service Hospital, Kathmandu, and a 25-bed cancer-focused hospital in Janakpur.
