A linear accelerator of the latest generation has already been installed in the Complex Oncology Center in Plovdiv. In order to be put into operation, only the permission of the Nuclear Regulatory Agency is expected. The equipment has full capacity for radiotherapy and radiosurgery and was bought after 2 years of waiting.

“From the moment of my election as manager of the Complex Oncology Center, my job and that of the team is to offer the best, innovative and gentle treatment for our patients. Thanks to this latest generation device, this is now possible. The purchase of the linear accelerator is the most important step we have taken so far”, explains Associate Professor Tihomir Dermendzhiev.

The public order for the delivery of the accelerator was announced in September 2021 and implemented in accordance with all legal requirements. The equipment has been delivered and located in a specially designated room, and the staff has already been trained to work with it. The value of the accelerator is nearly BGN 6 million. The financing is through the “Jessica for Bulgaria” fund under the “Regional Development” operational program, DSK Bank and self-participation of the medical facility.

“This is the largest, but not the only, initiative to replace the existing and purchase new medical equipment for diagnosis and treatment. At the same time, the material base is constantly being renewed in order to improve the conditions for the patients”, adds Assoc. Dr. Dermendzhiev.

Ultrasound scanners in the Diagnostic and Consultative Unit, a laparoscopic system for the gynecology department, a DR imaging system, a portable X-ray machine and other devices are to be purchased.

The complex oncology center is the most successfully developing commercial company of the municipality of Plovdiv. He ended 2021 with a profit of BGN 922 thousand. The cancer dispensary is among the largest hospitals according to the “Performed activity” indicator for 2021. It is the only medical facility among the top 20 that is not a general hospital. It ranks 19th with 18,895 patients treated on clinical pathways.

The Plovdiv complex oncology center is the second largest complex for the treatment of this type of disease in the country and is in first place in Bulgaria with the most patients who have passed in 2021. It serves cancer patients from all over Bulgaria. It is among the most preferred because it offers an extremely high level of service. Some of the best oncology specialists work there. A clear indicator of the success of the formula “good and dedicated doctors plus new and modern equipment” applied in the Complex Oncology Center are the thousands of patients who sought treatment there.
