Patients with cancer can be diagnosed, treated and rehabilitated in one medical organization.
During the first three months of work, the outpatient oncological care center, which opened on the basis of the city clinical oncological hospital No. 1, received more than 28 thousand patients.
The center was created within the framework of a new standard for the provision of cancer care. Here, patients have access to full medical support at all stages of diagnosis, specialized treatment and follow-up. The center conducts laboratory tests, ultrasound and functional diagnostics, endoscopic examinations, as well as PET-CT examinations and radiation therapy, using modern equipment. Not so long ago, a cystoscopic rack was installed in the treatment room.
Almost 6.5 thousand people were treated in the day hospital of the outpatient oncological care center. Orthopedic beds are installed in the wards, where patients are treated with chemotherapy, and there are individual buttons for calling medical personnel.
The center also operates a round-the-clock hospital, where more than two thousand people have already received help.
Since 2019, a new standard for the provision of cancer care has been implemented in the capital. On the basis of the largest city hospitals, six multidisciplinary oncological centers have been created, each of which is assigned residents of one or two administrative districts of Moscow.
The centers carry out diagnostics, surgical treatment, drug therapy and dispensary observation. In general, all specialized care is provided in one organization, which makes it possible to shorten the time of making a diagnosis, increase its accuracy and start treatment faster.
