The centre's new Haematology Service was formally unveiled last Friday, with its head, Dilek Yazman, saying she hoped to develop their work and eventually be fully equipped to carry out bone marrow transplants.
Prime Minister Ersin Tatar, Health Minister Ali Pilli and the hospital's chief doctor, Adil Özyılkan, performed the official opening in front of MPs and officials.
The new unit has 13 rooms and 17 beds for treating patients with conditions such as leukaemia and lymphoma.
Mr Tatar, calling the Oncology Centre “our honor”, told the launch ceremony: “It is our duty to push the boundaries in order for health services to be provided. Health comes first and we can never know what will happen to someone.
“We need to provide all kinds of health care to our people while also protecting and developing [the service].”
Dr Pilli said the government was aiming to make “sustainable investments” in health, and this included continuing planning of a new state hospital in Lefkoşa.
