The Iasi-based Centre for Screening and Diagnosis in Oncological Diseases, which is the first medical institution of its kind in the Moldavia region, was inaugurated on Friday in the presence of the Minister of Health, Alexandru Rafila.
The centre operates within the Iasi Regional Institute of Oncology (IRO), which has been active for a decade.
“This centre, in addition to a package of preventive services in the field of oncology, also offers other health services on an outpatient basis, which is very good because it increases the addressability in the screening area, on the one hand, and on the other, it can successfully complete the revenues of this unit, which is functional. This was a success because several projects were brought to a good end, which means that an objective was accomplished, and this should become something regular. The idea to finance a project in totality is slowly becoming old and we must seek integrated solutions of the various sources of financing to make possible the financing and the building of these medical institutions,” stated Minister Rafila, according to Agerpres.
The new centre will provide screening services for cervical, breast, prostate, skin and colorectal cancer. He will be part of a medical campus with a cancer profile.
