The Ramaiah HCG Cancer Centre is the result of a collaborative effort between two premiere institutions:
HCG Enterprises Ltd and the Ramaiah Group of Institutions.
“Cancer is a specialised field of healthcare and HCG is recognised as a specialist in cancer care. North Bangalore needed a dedicated cancer centre and the Ramaiah Group of Institutions was looking at expanding their cancer care programme. We approached them with the intent of doing a collaborative programme.
We have shared a great working relationship with them and there has been tremendous team spirit between the two groups. Today, the centre has been expanded to include a comprehensive cancer centre with a newly installed state-of-the-art Linear Accelerator, Bone Marrow Transplant Unit and a next generation PET CT.
Given the success of the cancer care centre, we began work on fertility care and launched Milann, the Fertility Centre. All of this would not have been possible without the vision and support of Dr. Jayaram of the Ramaiah Group of Institutions.
This partnership model is a testimony of how two groups can come together and work in a very collaborative and cohesive manner with great team spirit to achieve the ultimate goal of optimising care to the patient. This, without compromising on good outcomes and safety, and ensuring it is accessible and affordable. It is truly a model worth emulating.
My sincere thanks to Dr. Jayaram and the entire Ramaiah Group for working with us closely in making our dream a reality.”

The International Medical School (IMS) is a collaboration between the Management and Science University, Malaysia and the Ramaiah Group of Institutions, Bangalore. Approximately a 100 Malaysian students join the school every year to study a curriculum approved by the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC).
“The collaboration between the Management & Science University and the Ramaiah Group of Institutions in the formation of the International Medical School (IMS) has reached its 10th meaningful year. This unique relationship, formalised in 2006, has developed and grown to become a successful joint medical-education model to many. The combined efforts and expertise in medical education and services that the Ramaiah Group provides, coupled with MSU’s drive for educational excellence as Malaysia’s best teaching and learning university, have resulted in the training of 493 medical graduates.
Personally, I am proud of this collaborative undertaking and my deepest appreciation to Dr. M R Jayaram, Chairman, Ramaiah Group and his team for the dedication shown to ensuring the success of this venture. I am optimistic that the understanding established between MSU and the Ramaiah Group has created an eco-system for IMS, Bangalore to develop further within the next decade.”

Portea, a leader in home health care, has a strong presence on our campus. The collaboration with them includes:
This partnership is leveraged to help patients who would otherwise lack access to quality healthcare.
An MoU has been inked with KSCA to set up an Advanced Sports Rehab Facility in Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. This facility will help serve promising youngsters who are injured.
In collaboration with the Government of Ghana, hospitals have been set up in the country to ensure that a self-sufficient healthcare ecosystem falls in place.
The Heart Rescue Programme
The Heart Rescue Programme, in collaboration with UIC and Meditronics, is for people who either do not feel at risk or those for whom help reaches too late. As a part of this programme, 2-wheeler bike ambulances and a defibrillator kit is offered to every hospital within a 10-km radius of the campus. This vehicle and the kit can be used by a paramedic to reach a heart attack victim in time, despite Bangalore’s traffic woes. If required, the victim will be brought to the campus by the ambulance that follows the bike ambulance to the victim’s location.
This 5-year initiative will keep track of the lives saved and offer detailed data that will help others replicate the model in their locations. The programme is also practising the lessons learnt from the implementation of this idea in Chicago.
Bone Marrow Transplant Unit
Since 2015, the Memorial Hospital has been working with UIC to get an international accreditation in this specialised area, a feat as yet unattained by any hospital in India.
Ayur Integrated Centre
Chronic problems can be addressed well by Ayurveda. Indic Specialty Ayurveda is working with the UIC to ensure that Indian medicine is scientifically validated, thereby opening it up to more people across the world.
As specialists in, and bulk providers of, cardiac care, NH offers quality healthcare to patients at affordable prices. Convinced about the benefits they will offer patients, the Memorial Hospital asked them to set up a centre in our campus, one that will also help increase their geographic reach.
ConvaTec provides specialised wound dressing to those suffering from diabetes and other chronic wounds.
