Kidwai Memorial Oncology Hospital/Kidwai Cancer Hospital relocates to the BIMS campus after changes in initial plans, bringing advanced cancer care to Belagavi.
Belagavi: The Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, popularly known as the Kidwai Cancer Hospital, will be built on the grounds of the Belagavi Institute of Medical Sciences (BIMS) hospital.
In the past, there was a plan to create something similar in the city’s Vadgaon area.
The Kidwai Cancer Hospital was approved for Belagavi in the year 2022 on 4 acres of land close to a primary health center in the Vadgaon area of the city. Although it was promised that the building would start within a month, this did not happen.
However, the project’s location has been shifted from Vadgaon to BIMS hospital, according to the most recent information.
Nitesh Patil, the deputy commissioner, said that the project would be carried out on the BIMS campus.
Abhay Patil, a Belagavi (South) MLA, was instrumental in securing the Kidwai Cancer Hospital’s establishment in Belagavi. He wanted it to be located in his district.
According to district administration sources, the Kidwai authorities choose BIMS as the site after the project received administrative authorization in September 2022.
