Instituto do Câncer do Estado de São Paulo - HC/ICESP

O Instituto do Câncer do Estado de São Paulo "Octavio Frias de Oliveira"(ICESP) foi inaugurado em maio de 2008, numa parceria entre o Governo do Estado de São Paulo, a Fundação Faculdade de Medicina (FFM) e a Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP), para ser uma referência em atendimento humanizado, ensino e pesquisa do câncer em âmbito nacional e internacional.

Especializado no tratamento de casos de câncer de alta complexidade, o Instituto foi concebido e equipado para fornecer atenção integral ao paciente oncológico, do tratamento à reabilitação, e dispõe de um Centro de Treinamento em Oncologia onde as equipes de assistência recebem capacitações práticas e teóricas de forma constante.

O ICESP também conta com o apoio de uma equipe multiprofissional (psicólogos, fonoaudiólogos, nutricionistas, assistentes sociais, entre outros) que se dedica aos pacientes e familiares, buscando acolhê-los nesse momento de fragilidade física e emocional.
