MTMH, a trust hospital at Jamshedpur was established in 1975 to cater to cancer patients of this region. It is named after Lady Meherbai Tata, wife of Sir Dorabji Jamshedji Tata. In 2017, Tata Trusts approved a project to upgrade MTMH from a 72-bedded cancer hospital to a comprehensive 128-bedded cancer care facility through investment in civil infrastructure and equipment.

The foundation laying ceremony for this project was done on 2nd March 2018 by Mr. Ratan Tata and the upgraded hospital was inaugurated by him on 13th March 2019. MTMH offers comprehensive cancer care facility, including Medical and Radiation Oncology, Surgical Oncology with TMH, Palliative Care and advanced diagnostic facilities (CT, MRI, PET-CT). It has an NABL accredited laboratory. Image guided biopsies, not done anywhere else in Jamshedpur, are routinely carried out here. The infrastructure includes a Day Care Chemotherapy Ward, Pritpal Palliative Care Centre (funded by Suri Foundation) and well- equipped general wards and cabins.

In addition, a state-of-the-art True Beam Radiotherapy machine, the only one of its kind in Jharkhand helps to treat patients with the most advanced and precise radiation therapy.

MTMH accepts patients under the PM-JAY (Ayushman Bharat) scheme. Many patients are also supported through Mukhyamantri Gambhir Bimari Yojana. Besides these, corporates and individuals support poor patients through generous donations (KMCO Trust, Suri Seva Foundation, JCAPCPL, Tinplate to name a few). The endeavour of MTMH is to ensure that no cancer patient suffers due to lack of fund and it is able to do so because of the immense support from Jamshedpur society.
