City Clinic Cancer Center located in the city of Sofia opened doors to treat patients at the end of 2015. The investment in the Inpatient Center outsizes BGN 70 mln, over 40 mln of it invested in modern equipment and advanced medical technology devices.
The hospital is situated on 8 floors and has been equipped with 3 Radiotherapy devices of highest class, one of which dedicated to Brachytherapy. The center covers the entire field of high-tech Diagnostic Imaging – 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance, 128-multisliced computed tomography, as well as Nuclear Medicine, including two additional latest hybrid devices in diagnosing oncologic diseases – SPECT/CT and PET/CT. In addition, the clinic has installed the first in Bulgaria digital 3D Mammography with tomosynthesis – it has become the “golden standard” worldwide in diagnostics of diseases of the mammary.
The Cancer Center has specialized clinics in Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiosurgery in all its forms as well as Clinics in Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, General and Clinical Pathology, Genetics and Gastroenterology with a modern sector for endoscopic procedures.
The Center has been designed to provide a complex treatment to 1,500 newly diagnosed cancer patients. Annually, over 20,000 patients shall be using the diagnostic and therapeutic services of the new Cancer Center. The main focus is upon individual care for each patient. The bed-bound patients shall be accommodated in private single-bed rooms where family participation in the treatment is strongly encouraged. The patient’s relatives shall be trained to provide further upon discharge – at a home environment. This is a model implemented by leading world practices.
The modern Inpatient Center has employed leading specialists; our goal is to further attract Bulgarian physicians working in world known clinics of Europe back to the country. The medical staff consists of over 250 physicians and health care professionals.
The Hospital has been designed by the HKS, a leading American architecture bureau, specialized in developing medical Centers and leading hospitals throughout the world. The concept behind the design of City Clinic Cancer Center has been developed following the MD Anderson University Cancer Center in Houston, USA, the best Cancer Center in the world.
