International Office

The IEO aims to become an international point of reference in the fight against cancer. For this reason, IEO International Office was set up in September 2013.

We welcome patients from all over the world, from the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, South America, Saudi Arabia, and the Russian Federation. The IEO International Office is fully dedicated to providing a tailored welcome and a comfortable hospital stay, by meeting all individual needs. The IEO is committed to offer customized care for all patients and pay attention to their medical needs, language expectations, cultural and religious aspects.

"I'm very proud of the fact that in just a few years the engagement of all the people working at IEO has enabled our care and research model to become a landmark for oncology all over the world."

IEO Hospitalization

Patients will be informed about every step of their diagnosis and treatment by their IEO referring physician. Patients are requested to bring all their clinical documentation, translated into Italian or English. In the meantime, all medical reports written by IEO physicians will be both in Italian and English. Before the hospitalization a video containing all the information related to the stay at the IEO will be sent to patients, in order to give them all details related to the clinical and administrative pathway.

IEO Continuity of Care

At discharge, IEO physicians will discuss with the patient the possibility of continuing care in their country of origin with special attention to regular check-up and follow-up programs. The IEO International Office is completely committed to assist the patient, even at a distance, for any further needs.
