Welcome Page

Dear Visitor!

Welcome to the new webpage of the Clinical Center of the University of Debrecen!

As an institution of higher education active in the fields of medical and health sciences, the University of Debrecen has established a teaching hospital center called the Clinical Center (teaching hospital units are referred to as clinics) to function as a healthcare provider and an organizational unit of the university with a view to coordinating patient care.  

While keeping pace with the explosive development of technology, our Center serves patients on one of the most beautiful campuses of Europe.

The Center provides patient care on 1,700 beds, in 130 outpatient clinics and 49 diagnostics units. The multi-faceted nature of patient care is well illustrated by the fact that in terms of inpatient care specialized care is provided in nearly 60, while in terms of outpatient care and diagnostic services, in close to 80 professions.  

The obligation of the Clinical Center of the University of Debrecen to provide in-area care for inpatients on the highest level of the Hungarian healthcare hierarchy (highest level of progressivity, providing care for more complicated and rare diseases) extends to the regions of Hajdú-Bihar and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg counties, as well as certain regions of Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén counties. The overall population cared for is about 1.2 million. In terms of certain specializations (e.g. cardiac surgery, oncology, burn surgery, geriatrics, and radiotherapy) the population to be provided for exceeds 2 million.

The Center’s obligation to provide for the region’s outpatient care at the third level of progressivity extends to the regions of Hajdú-Bihar, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg counties, covering a total of about 1.5 million people.

Simultaneously with the advancement of medicine, the Clinical Center is continuously expanding its range of activities through introducing new methods: 

  •  We provide the highest-level, full medical care for patients in the region with cardiovascular diseases and tumors.
  • The Gamma Radiotherapy Center provides high-efficiency treatment of intracranial vascular diseases without opening the skull.
  • As a result of our most recent development projects, we have established one of the most modern Nuclear Medicine Centers in Europe within the framework of the Debrecen PET-program.   
  • The Center has acquired a Hungarian AnyScan imaging system that is unique on a global scale as well, which works to improve early recognition of diseases using the triad of SPECT, PET, and CT functions.
  • The TeleStroke system has also been introduced. It provides 24-hour video and audio connection, as well as non-stop consultation opportunities for the hospitals in Kisvárda and Mátészalka, enabling immediate treatment, which is indispensable in the successful treatment of stroke.
  • A new video-based education system has been established, which enables the three-dimensional video broadcast of various surgeries, including complicated heart surgeries, in a unique way in Hungary.
  • From 2016 onwards, such rare surgeries in the country as adult allogeneic bone marrow transplantation or transcatheter heart valve implantation have also become available.

In the future we wish to build on and continue the dynamic development seen in recent years, giving further impetus to increasing the standard of patient care.

Thank you for visiting our website.

On behalf of the Clinical Center, allow me to extend my welcome to each and every one of you:


Prof. Dr. Ervin Berényi
Head of the Clinical Center
