DIAGNOSTIC AND THERAPEUTIC ONCOLOGY CENTER
KMC is proud to be among the elite group of cancer centers that are acknowledged as the nation’s leaders in the fight against cancer. The comprehensive cancer center has built a team of nationally and internationally recognized experts who are committed to providing the best care possible for more than 1200 inpatients and 5000 outpatients every year.
Our comprehensive cancer center is the first and only one of its kind in the private sector, in Jordan and the region. The uniqueness of our center stems from its unique formula of integrating and combining its extensive experience and its areas of strength, which we’ll mention below, with the cutting-edge technologies, latest equipment and world-class expertise of the Afia Center - our sisterly, cancer-specialized center across the street. Both centers complement and complete each other in the sense that they, combined, are able to offer our patients a complete, highly-integrated protocol for diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancers at all stages, most efficaciously
