About the hospital

West Pomeranian Oncology Center Szczecin is located in the building of the former district hospital from 1909 and acquired its current name 16 years ago. The hospital's operation complies with numerous ISO and PN-N-N standards, particularly for quality and environmental management, occupational health, and food safety.

Also, since 2006, the clinic has been a certified regional oncology center in Poland, and its doctors are among the top ten in the national rating according to the "Rzeczpospolita" version. In addition, the Polish Society for the Study of Pain and the Polish Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care, Gynecology, Surgery, and Orthopedics awarded the Szczecin West Pomeranian Oncology Center with the "Pain-Free Hospital" certificate. Also, the hospital received the title "Golden Leader of Health Care 2016" from the magazine "National Health System."

The medical center has high ratings of cure efficiency and continuously works on developing innovative treatment methods. Doctors cooperated with physicists and developed a unique radiation beam scattering modifier with 3D modeling and proprietary software. This approach reduces the effect on healthy tissues and promotes the maximum effect on the tumor. Furthermore, much attention is paid to minimally invasive methods of treatment. As a result, the endoscopic laboratory allowed simultaneous diagnostic and treatment procedures of the gastrointestinal tract (polypectomy, dilatation, stenting, and gastrostomy). Also, a large selection of radiation therapy (HDR brachytherapy and IMRT, CFRT, whole skin irradiation, and remote therapy using respiratory gating functions), chemotherapy, molecular target drugs, and hormonal therapy complement each other. Multicomponent cures contribute to a lower risk of recurrent malignant neoplasms after recovery. Different levels of care cover almost the entire range of necessary treatments in the field of oncology. On an outpatient basis, the removal of suspicious skin growths for minor cases is available at the medical center. At the same time, the clinic has 3 intensive care units for critically ill patients.

The wide range of services of the West Pomeranian Oncology Hospital in Szczecin allows you to treat patients with breast cancer, gynecology, stomach, liver, intestines, respiratory system, and skin.

The city is quite famous for tourism with its many festivals and cultural events and has the largest seaport in the country. However, shipbuilding has remained the primary industry for many years.
