About the clinic

Maria Sklodowska-Curie Memorial Institute of Oncology Warsaw was officially opened in 1932 with the participation of the world-famous talented Maria Sklodowska-Curie as the Radium Institute. Currently, it is one of the most important European oncology hospitals, which offers a high level of treatment efficiency in the cooperation of oncologists with narrow specialists. In 1953, a central cancer registry was created in the medical center, thanks to the forecasts of a rapid increase in morbidity, which contributed to the increase of diagnostic and treatment departments in the structure. Nowadays, the hospital is designed for 726 places, which provides an opportunity to provide inpatient care to more than 86,000 patients and consult outpatients for 400,000 patients annually. In addition, the clinic building is specially equipped for patients with disabilities, providing excellent care for a comfortable stay during treatment. 440 highly qualified doctors have been able to treat patients and conduct clinical research at the oncology center of the Institute since 2011. The staff consists of laureates of the prestigious award of the Rosalind Franklin Society in the field of science and the "Doctor of Empathy" plebiscite, winners of Supertalents in Medicine 2022, and top scientists, according to the Research website.  The medical staff was also recognized by the ShEO Awards 2021 in the category "Medical Authority" for special attention to educational activities and support of patients during treatment. The OECI-Organization of European Cancer Institutes certificate for 2022 provided opportunities for global cooperation between the most influential centers of modern oncology treatment. Numerous grants for research and cooperation with the center of scientific research made it possible to open access to the most current and unique treatment of oncological lesions, including stem cell therapy. The hospital also conducts clinical trials with surgical treatment as combined treatment. It is worth noting that the Lymphatic System Cancer Clinic (KNUCH), based at the Institute, is the largest and most successful clinic in Poland in the diagnosis and treatment of neoplasms of the lymphatic system. Also, the center of breast tumor and reconstructive surgery is the most experienced center in Poland in the complex treatment of patients after surgical intervention.
