The German Oncology Center is built on a plot of 50,000 sq.m .. It is located at an altitude of about 200 meters, with clearly lower humidity levels than in the city center and on the seaside. We always have a pleasant breeze. It’s nice and quiet and one can enjoy a beautiful and unobstructed view across the sea bay of Limassol.
We chose to dress our building with the colour of copper, which according to some historical sources is associated with the etymology of the name of Cyprus. In ancient times the island was well known for its production and trade of copper.
We believe that the bronze colour of the mineral blends harmoniously with the environment. The building has ample surrounding area, with gardens and parking spaces for 430 vehicles.
The GOC is located in the Municipality of Agios Athanasios, with very easy access to and from the highway. Just four minutes from the Linopetra traffic junction, exit 25, of the Paphos – Limassol – Nicosia and Larnaca highway.
The construction of the Center began in May 2016. Within a period of 17months, the first phase of the project was completed, and received an official operating license on 30.10.2017 from the Ministry of Health of Cyprus.
The large basement houses all electromechanical and logistical support services, as well as the Pharmacy, the Clinical Laboratory and the Radioactive Isotope Treatment Room, which has five single rooms, all of which have access to our fully radiation-protected garden – one of the very few in the world – allowing patients to meet and communicate with each other, instead of being completely isolated during their treatment, as has been the case until now.
From the beginning of November 2018, with the completion of the second phase of the project, on the 2nd floor, 17 new, comfortable and spacious rooms with 27 beds were delivered. This floor occupies an area of 1,370 sq.m., including the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). A highlight of the GOC is the Roof Garden of 740 sq.m., a Garden of Hope and Recreation for patients, relatives and friends. It is named after a friend and generous sponsor of the GOC, Dipak Kumar.
Today, the GOC operates with 3 of its 4 floors, and is constantly expanding with the addition of new departments, administrative services, and other spaces.
The Operations Manager is Vassilis Spiliadis.
