Hospital overview


The Oncology Institute of Southern Switzerland (IOSI) is based on the model of integrated cancer centres and includes all oncologic activities which are carried out within the public hospitals of Southern Switzerland. IOSI encompasses 6 divisions: medical oncology, radio-oncology, nuclear medicine (incl.PET-CT unit), haematology, palliative care and research.

The IOSI was set up in accordance with the North American model of"Comprehensive Cancer Centre", even if its structure is particular as it is a transversal organisation within the multisite hospital EOC. The IOSI, therefore, has the ambition to represent the model of a clearly organised hospital complex, integrating all the specialties which deal with diagnosis, treatment and research of cancer diseases.

The IOSI guarantees its patients a holistic approach and the possibility of getting the benefit of the most recent
cancer research. For its high quality medical care IOSI is recognised both nationally and internationally.
