UMCL is a symbol of high-quality health care and is recognized as the national leader in providing the most demanding and innovative medical procedures. As the largest health care institution in Slovenia, it boasts state-of-the-art equipment, including MRI units, CT scanners and other devices. Every year, innovative advanced techniques and high-quality treatment modalities are adopted and applied in practice by UMCL staff.
UMCL is the only Slovene medical institution providing transplant procedures. We take pride in outstanding achievements made in the field of organ transplantation. More than 100 organs – kidneys, hearts and livers – are transplanted annually in UMCL. In terms of the number of heart transplantations per million population, UMCL ranks among the top transplant centres in Europe and worldwide. UMCL performs organ procurement for lung and spleen transplantation in Vienna, and runs national programmes of bone marrow, skin, cartilage cells and retinal tissue transplantation.
We are proud to have succeeded in opening two important new facilities: the Medical Stimulation Centre and the Intermediate Care Department, UMCL.
The Medical Stimulation Centre is a multidisciplinary centre that runs various training programmes for health care workers (physicians, nurses, health care technicians) using a technologically advanced mannequin – a patient simulator – for comprehensive patient care simulation and for hands-on health care education. Health care professionals thereby acquire and practice skills they need for their individual and team work.
The new intermediate care facilities in Ljubljana were set up in collaboration with the Municipality of Ljubljana and Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia, as a response to one of the major social and economic challenges of the 21st century. The Intermediate Care Department admits patients who require protracted non-acute health care in order to facilitate the transition from hospital to home. After the completion of three new health care buildings, which was made possible through the financial support of the Ministry of Health, we look forward to the opening of a new emergency diagnostic and therapeutic service, currently still under construction.
