The interdisciplinary Skin Cancer Centre underwent a successful inspection on 7 July 2009 and is now one of the first ten skin cancer centres in Germany ever to be certified by the independent certification authority OnkoZert. The Centre aims to offer skin cancer patients the high standards of care established by the guidelines of the German Cancer Society. Our high standards of care are made possible by our extensive network of partners. We collaborate closely with a number of the Hospital's clinics and institutes, as well as having close ties with medical practices in the wider Ludwigshafen area. In addition, we collaborate closely with a number of skin cancer self-help groups and local hospices.
