NU-MED Center for Diagnostics and Oncology Therapy in Zamość is the youngest of NU-MED Group centers. The first patients were admitted on March 1, 2016. The Center in Zamość was established in the vicinity of the John Paul II Memorial Independent Public Voivodeship Hospital in Zamość, where the wards of clinical oncology and surgical oncology had previously operated. Radiation therapy was what lacked to complete the picture of comprehensive therapy.
The patients may take advantage of state-of-the-art equipment, 3 accelerators, computer tomography for treatment planning and PET-CT laboratory. A specialized personnel comprised of physicians, nurses, physicists, technicians and psychologists are at their disposal.

A family reunion room has been prepared for the patients and their families, where it is possible to watch television, read, have a cup of tea with close ones.
Apart from hospital treatment, therapy in an outpatient mode is also available at the center. The patient attends the center for irradiation and returns home. We have established a hostel for those whose place of residence is very remote.
