Clara Campal Cancer Center - HM CIOCC
The Clara Campal Comprehensive Cancer Center (HM CIOCC in Spanish), attached to the HM Sanchinarro University Hospital, constitutes a new concept for the treatment of cancer patients, unique in Spain and an international benchmark with multidisciplinary, comprehensive and personalized care.
The Clara Campal Comprehensive Cancer Center is the culmination of the project that Dr. Juan Abarca Campal started 30 years ago with the creation of HM Hospitals, and which also includes nine other hospitals (HM Madrid, HM Montepríncipe, HM Torrelodones, HM Nuevo Belén, HM Puerta del Sur, HM Modelo, Maternidad HM Belén and HM Vallés), eleven polyclinics in the Community of Madrid, two polyclinics in Galicia and one polyclinic in Toledo.
The structure of HM CIOCC responds to an exhaustive analysis of the most effective, efficient and effective models that exist in the world in the cancer treatment environment, after which the comprehensive American model has been implemented. This translates into a multidisciplinary vision for the cancer patient, in which s/he is treated jointly and without delay by different specialists involved in dealing with their disease and the possible complications it may generate. Thus, this healthcare, which originates from translational research, revolves around the patient, without the patient having to move from one center to another to be treated.
The center has the most advanced technology in diagnostic imaging, with a 64-slice scanner, 3-Tesla closed MRI, high-field open MRI, intraoperative resonance, Da Vinci robotic assistance surgical system, PET-CT, nuclear medicine and prone table mammography, which allow maximum definition and accuracy of all types of tumors.
VERSA HD (Elekta)
Regarding treatment, in addition to the most advanced radiology techniques, HM CIOCC has a translational research unit, which enables a personalized approach to each type of tumor. Examples of top-level services in this regard are the Women's Radiology Unit or the Radiation Oncology Service, with three linear accelerators -one of them almost unique in Spain, which allows intra and extracranial surgery-, an intelligent and brachytherapy. It also has the first Angela Navarro Center for Aesthetics Applied to Health integrated into the hospital environment to improve the offer of comprehensive and personalized treatment for cancer patients.
Lastly, HM CIOCC also has an area dedicated to research, both in the Laboratory of Therapeutic Targets and in the Radiation Oncology Service. The clinic highlights the xenograft project, linked to translational medicine, and which allows a unique and personalized differential approach to each tumor. Along with this, there are two interesting other areas in cancer research: the application of molecular pathology methods, which make it possible to tackle the complex world of pharmacodiagnosis in an effective way and the creation of a Phases Unit. I CIOCC-START, to bring new medicines closer to our patients.
We are present and future

Special Oncology Services
We offer specific services for each patient with a reference oncologist to contact. We have functional units integrated as a multidisciplinary team for each tumor pathology, which meet periodically to design the treatment strategy for each individual patient.
The development in recent years of drugs addressed against genetic or molecular alterations is turning these alterations into therapeutic targets or predictive response markers. The study of therapeutic targets therefore becomes essential in the treatment of cancer.
At HM Hospitales we are at the forefront in personalizing treatment in the different tumor processes of cancer patients.
Radiotherapy, together with surgery, chemotherapy and new biological therapies is one of the fundamental pillars of cancer treatment. Almost 70% of oncology patients receive radiotherapy throughout their illness as it is a very effective treatment.
The main objective of the Family Cancer Program is to advise patients and families who are at risk of developing greater cancer.
