Provincial hospital opens cancer chemotherapy departmentSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Such a department has been opened at Sukhbaatar aimag's hospital.
About it says the Khan Bank’s website on Thursday. Cancer chemotherapy provides opportunities to cure cancer completely, killing cancer cells and reducing cancer growth. Chemotherapy and physiotherapy are the highly required treatments for cancer patients. Therefore, patients coming from rural areas to the National Cancer Center (NCC) for chemotherapy never stop since there is no other qualified cancer hospital except the NCC in Mongolia.
The Khan Bank Foundation acts as a general sponsor of the department establishment, which was initiated by the Jargalsaikhan Future foundation and was built in one year thanks to the sincere donations by individuals and companies operating in Sukhbaatar aimag.
The Jargalsaikhan Future foundation was founded by family members of late manager of Khan Bank branch in Sukhbaatar aimag B.Jargalsaikhan and dedicated to continuing his initiatives aimed at accomplishing various activities such as supporting public health education and delivering free medical diagnosis to vulnerable group of the society.
According to some unfortunate statistics, 161 individuals were diagnosed with cancer diseases and 127 individuals passed away due to cancer diseases in the province last year. The newly established cancer chemotherapy department will receive patients not only from Sukhbaatar aimag, but also from Khentii and Dornod aimags and deliver medical treatment to residents of these three eastern aimags.
The head of the Jargalsaikhan Future Foundation J.Zorigtbaatar, manager of Khan Bank branch in Sukhbaatar aimag Ts.Adiyabaatar, head of the Research and Training Department of the NCC Ts.Badamsuren and other officials attended in the ceremony. J.Zorigtbaatar underlined that it is a significant investment in the provincial hospital and it is a “Model Department” which could be established in other aimags.
The Khan Bank Foundation with the motto of making considerable contributions to the social wellbeing have jointly organized the National Campaign against Cancer across the country for the fifth year and delivered comprehensive and free medical diagnosis to thousands of people. The Khan Bank Foundation sponsored this project with the aim of improving sufficiency of medical treatment and quality, as well as developing hospital conditions and environment.
