The Division of Oncology is a leading division in Europe for holistic and sustainable oncological medicine. Around 80 staff members are active in healing, alleviating pain, caring for patients, teaching and conducting research.
Our clinic currently has five examination/consultation rooms and over ten therapy areas. The oncology clinic is an outpatient clinic; around 17,000 patients are treated each year. We attach great importance to high quality of care in our outpatient clinic and day clinic. To achieve a maximum amount of quality of life for our patients, we treat cancer patients in line with international developments and provide increasingly more care in outpatient and day clinic settings.
Consultations and examinations take place at the outpatient clinic while the day clinic administers drug treatments.
Around 1,400 patients receive care in our ward each year. In 1992 the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser was asked to redesign the ward to create an environment in which patients and their family members feel safe and secure.
A form of treatment that supports cancer patients, their families and risk groups, psycho-oncology is integrated into medical care at our division. Psycho-oncological treatment aims to minimize psychological stress as well as physical and social burdens on patients and their family members.
The uniqueness and the added value of our division are the result of the symbiosis between patient care, research and education. The division is jointly operated by the Medical University of Graz and the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes). This interdisciplinary cooperation between both providers at the University Hospital Graz site is also reflected on our website. More information on patient care can be found at the University Hospital Graz website.
