In an article by Maher Abou El Nour in el Yom el Sabei newspaper , the author informs us about the inauguration on Dec.4th, 2011 of a new cancer center on the third floor of El Kharga Oasis Hospital in El Wadi El Guadid Governorate. Present at the center opening were Governor Tarek El Mahdi, and a delegation from the Ministry of health and the Cancer Institute in Assiut. It is noteworthy that the new center has received as much as 16 patients on its first day of operations, that the Ministry of Health was the main supplier of its remaining needs of medical equipment and that some members of its medical staff namely physicians, nurses, and clinical pharmacists are receiving training by Experts from Hospital 57357 and the Ministry of health. The new cancer center will provide locally quality healthcare services for the treatment of cancer; hence preventing the burden and travel cost of seeking it in Cairo. The center will also apply a computing system allowing it to keep a reliable data base and source of information concerning its cancer patients.
