UPMC has opened a cancer center in Rome, where patients can receive “precisely delivered, high-dose radiation to treat the most challenging tumors,” the hospital system said on Tuesday. The Advanced Radiosurgery Center of Excellence, inside the 500-bed San Pietro Fatebenefratelli Hospital, is the first cancer center in Rome to offer stereotactic radiosurgery. Patients in that area previously had to travel 450 miles to Milan for the treatment, UPMC officials said. UPMC's international operations include two cancer centers in Ireland; a multi-specialty hospital in Palermo, Sicily, which it runs under contract with the Sicilian government; and a biomedical research complex under construction in Sicily that should open in 2016.
