Ovidius Clinical Hospital (OCH), a private hospital in south-east Romania, has opened a new facility dedicated to oncological and cardiovascular treatments, reported business-review.eu.

The new OCH includes centres for oncology and radiotherapy, and interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery, as well as the first Siemens Healthineers Reference Centre in the country.

The OCH features four magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), two computerised tomography (CT), two RX, one digital mammograph and 18 ultrasound machines.

Banca Comerciala Romana was the main source of funding for the construction of the new hospital.

The OCH Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre has 32 beds and will be able to treat at least 1,500 patients a year with radiotherapy and 3,500 patients with chemotherapy.

The OCH Centre for Interventional Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery has two operating rooms, and ten beds for coronary intensive care.

The Siemens Healthineers Reference Centre at the new hospital employs artificial intelligence solutions including assistance for remote scanning.

The existing 12,000m2 OCH features 154 beds and is reputed to be the largest private multidisciplinary hospital in south-east Romania. It was built with an investment of €38m (187.43m lei).
