The private German Oncology Center currently being built in Limassol, will be opening this autumn.
Speaking at a special forum on investment opportunities in Cyprus, held on Thursday at the 26th EBRD Annual Meeting in Nicosia, Dr Nicholas Zamboglou, the man behind the project, referred to the investment opportunities offered by Cyprus, disclosing amongst other things that the much-discussed Oncology center will be ready to offer its services from this September.
The project, which is being built in the area of Agios Athanasios, is expected to cost around 25 million euros and it will be able to serve around 1500 patients each year. This is very significant, considering the fact that there are approximately 3,500 new cancer cases every year, half of which need radiotherapy. The radiotherapy department will be able to serve the patients who live in the southwest of Cyprus (Limassol-Paphos) and are currently forced to travel to Nicosia for their treatments.
The German Oncology Centre will provide services covering the whole spectrum of needs, from prevention and diagnosis to treatment, rehabilitation and support for patients, offering modern radiotherapy techniques. It is worth noting that a modern department of invasive oncology will operate in the center, which will offer services estimated to attract patients from abroad.
