Ovidius Clinical Hospital, the largest multidisciplinary private hospital in South-East Romania, becomes the first Siemens Healthineers Reference and Training Centre in Romania.
At the same time, the hospital in Ovidiu is expanding in early April with a new hospital building in which the two dedicated centres for oncology, radiotherapy, interventional cardiology, and cardiovascular surgery will operate. This development is the result of the largest private investment in healthcare in South-East Romania since 1989: €28 million.
This collaboration is an important step for the development of the Romanian healthcare system, as well as an opportunity for Ovidius Clinical Hospital to offer patients access to the most advanced medical technologies. The reality of Dobrogea is aligned with that of the whole of Romania: cardiovascular and oncological diseases are at the top of the list in terms of incidence and increase in the number of cases, so naturally we are extending our work towards real needs, as we have done from day one. Our patients will benefit from facilities and technology unique in Romania and from super-specialised doctors in the most important medical centres in Europe. Not only are we aligned with European technological standards, but we are positioned, through the quality of our medical care and our multidisciplinary treatment and care capabilities, as leaders in the oncology and cardiology segments.Ș.

From the perspective of this strategic partnership, Ovidius Clinical Hospital will have access to the latest Siemens Healthineers technologies, products and solutions, which certifies the constant improvement of the medical team and therefore of the services offered to patients and of course to the increase of their chances of recovery and improvement of their health.
Such technologies include the Artis Icono Floor Angiograph, a unique angiographic system in Romania, which allows clear and precise images of blood vessels, so that the doctor can see in detail their structure and possible abnormalities.
In Romania, OCH’s Halcyon radiotherapy system will be the 10th in the country to be delivered and the first in the South-East region to be operational.
The Halcyon Linear Accelerator has become a trailblazer in the world of radiotherapy, incorporating intelligent automation systems that help reduce treatment time. In many cases, patients can be in and out of the radiotherapy centre in less than 15 minutes a day, throughout their entire treatment. Built around the cancer patient, Halcyon not only delivers vital treatments, but does so in a less intimidating and more comfortable way.
MAGNETOM Lumina is a magnetic resonance system with a magnetic field strength of 3T. The system is equipped with the unique BioMatrix technology, available only from Siemens Healthineers, whereby the system automatically adapts to the patient, not the patient to the system. The equipment adapts to the patient and performs free-breathing investigations even if the patient has difficulty sustaining controlled breathing, automatically homogenizes the magnetic field when the patient has various MR-compatible prostheses inserted in the body but artifacts the area to be investigated, and adapts to the patient if the patient moves during the scan.
SOMATOM Go Top is a 128-slice CT system reconstructed with a remarkable X-ray tube rotation speed of 0.33 seconds, allowing extremely fast examinations regardless of the patient’s pathology and condition. The system is equipped with artificial intelligence technology that helps the operator automatically set the scanning protocol according to the patient’s condition, so that when the scanning starts, the system already has all the necessary investigation options set.
This partnership and the designation of Ovidius Clinical Hospital as a Siemens Healthineers Reference Centre is truly a national first, which means that OCH Hospital is fully equipped with Siemens Healthineers equipment and technology, which contributes significantly to the provision of high quality medical services. Thus, the two new centres, the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre and the Interventional Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery Centre, which will be extended to Ovidius Clinical Hospital from April this year, will incorporate the latest Siemens Healthineers medical innovations and technologies in Romania as a result of this strategic partnership.Dr. Claudia Oanea, Managing Director Siemens Healthineers Romania.
The OCH Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre and the OCH Interventional Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery Centre will be inaugurated at the beginning of April and will be equipped with the latest innovations and medical technologies of Siemens Healthineers in Romania as a result of this strategic partnership. This equipment and services will enable the hospital to provide patients with precise, effective, minimally invasive, fast treatments, thus helping to improve the quality of medical care and therapeutic outcomes.
