B.P. Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital was initially started as a Day Care Centre, which was formally inaugurated on 11 october 1995. At that time pathology service was started with routine laboratory tests, FNAC and Bone marrow aspiration and examination. Similarly indoor service was started on 20 July 1999. Thereafter pathology service was expanded. Now we have own separate building for department of pathology.
Department of Pathology deals with the responsibilities to provide final diagnosis, assessment of different prognostic factor, supportive services during treatment and help to assess if there are recurrences or persistence of disease during follow up. It also plays vital role in research activities.
