Gujarat Cancer Society (GCS) is a 50-years old pioneer charitable trust to fight against cancer with the help of the Government of Gujarat. In the year 1971, Gujarat Cancer & Research Institute (GCRI) was established as a public-private partnership venture between GCS and the Government of Gujarat. The Governor of Gujarat presides as the president of the organization. Since then, GCS has been providing care to patients suffering from cancer at M. P. Shah Cancer Hospital, Civil Hospital Compound, Ahmedabad, and Community Oncology Centre (COC), Vasna. Lacs of patients have been diagnosed and treated to date.

GCS has a tremendous record of capabilities in health care, education, research, and community services. Our expertise prompted Gujarat Government to invite us to start a healthcare facility to serve the under-privileged citizens at an affordable cost and create a stream of trained medical professionals in the Medical College.
