This model allows HCG network of cancer centres to leverage the expertise and capabilities of its centre of excellence, which when combined with the diagnostic and treatment facilities at its cancer centres, allows it to deliver quality cancer care to patients across India in a seamless manner.

This allows it to share and develop best practices, build clinical expertise and adopt standardised protocols for diagnosis and treatment, thereby improving the quality of its cancer care services. As a result, the company is able to better serve its patients and ensure consistent clinical outcomes.
Given the large number of patient cases treated across its HCG network, the company is able to efficiently utilise its equipment, technologies and human resources, thereby deriving economies of scale.
