The structure of Oncoclínicas’ Radiotherapy units was specially designed for the well-being of our patients, ensuring their safety and a high standard of care.
The OC Radiotherapy unit is part of the complete and integrated hospital structure of Hospital Santa Izabel, which also has a center specializing in cancer treatment led by the oncologist team of the Oncoclínicas Group.
Radiation therapy is one of the most commonly used treatments for cancer patients. Through radiation, it can destroy or disable the duplication of tumor-causing cells and thus help fight and control the disease.
On the premises of the hospital, the first blood transfusion took place in Bahia, in 1915, and the first meeting of the Bahian League Against Cancer, in 1936. Today, with an impressive daily routine of care for more than two thousand patients, Santa Izabel is a high-complexity general hospital that offers assistance in more than 40 medical specialties and outpatient care, hospitalization and diagnostic and therapeutic support services, working with emphasis on the areas of Cardiology, Oncology, Neurology, Orthopedics and Pediatrics.
It is certified as an Accredited Hospital with Excellence – Level 3 by the National Accreditation Organization (ONA), for its excellent management, with recognition of the organizational culture of continuous improvement with institutional maturity. It has the international certification HIMSS (Health Information and Management Systems Society) Level 7 and the Qmentum International – IQG, Canadian international accreditation.
National reference and pioneer in the Northeast, the HSI Interventional Cardiology and Hemodynamics Service, which has performed more than 100,000 procedures in 40 years of activity, has Diamond Certification for Distinction.
