Strategic Planning and Finances Ganga Prem Hospice:
Phase One The Ganga Prem Hospice project is now in its 12th year of planning and operations. A successful monthly cancer clinic is running in Rishikesh where approximately 70-100 patients receive free medicine and consultations each month. Additional cancer clinics are held in Haridwar and Dehradun from time to time. The home care programme is also now well established and usually serves over 50 terminally ill patients at any one time.
The first phase of the inpatient facility comprises the east wing of the two wing Hospice, and includes basic amenities and beds for 17 patients. There is also an out-patient clinic in this wing.
Prem Hospice Strategic Business Plan The Ganga Prem Hospice project is now in its 12th year of planning and operations. The Hospice is providing free of cost in-patient palliative care and spiritual support to terminally ill cancer patients. While the Hospice will eventually be a state of the art 30-bed facility by the river Ganga in Rishikesh, the first phase of its in-patient operations will be as a 17-bed Hospice where oncologists, palliative care specialists, alternate medicine therapists, psychologists and spiritual counselors will provide their services to end stage cancer patients.
