Private Hospital Group in Spain Expands Radiotherapy Capabilities with Country's First Elekta Versa HD System
Date:10/24/2013

MADRID, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HM Hospitales, a private hospital group in Spain, anticipates treating its first patients with Elekta's Versa HD™ system in 2015. Versa HD, to be sited in the group's sixth hospital, is an advanced radiation treatment system designed to enhance the management of cancer care and treat a broad spectrum of tumors throughout the body. The most sophisticated linear accelerator on the market, Elekta's Versa HD is a single system capable of delivering conventional therapies for an expansive range of indications commonly seen in the clinic, while also permitting treatment of complex cancers that require exceptional targeting accuracy.

"Versa HD will allow us to treat patients with the most modern radiation therapy techniques, from traditional treatments to radiosurgery procedures," says Juan Abarca Cidon, M.D., general manager of HM Hospitales. "We will use Versa HD for virtually all cancer pathologies located throughout the body. The system's High Dose Rate mode and ultra-fast and precise Agility™ beam shaping capabilities also will improve the speed with which we can deliver therapy, which will improve patient comfort through shorter treatment times."

The new medical center, Hospital HM Universitario Puerto del Sur, will be connected to the hospital group's first radiation oncology department – Clara Campal Comprehensive Cancer Center at HM Sanchinarro – via Elekta's MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System (OIS). MOSAIQ replaces the Siemens LANTIS OIS that had been in use at the cancer center.

"The Puerto del Sur clinic will serve an area of approximately one million inhabitants in the area south of Madrid," Dr. Cidon says. "It is important that we provide cancer patients in Mostoles and the wider region with access to the very latest treatment technology."
