Docrates Cancer Center was established in 2007. From the very beginning, operations have been driven by a desire to treat each patient individually, providing prompt and high-quality cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Specialist in medical oncology and radiation therapy Timo Joensuu wished to create a hospital which would be built from the patient’s perspective and would be able to offer everything that a cancer patient might need. Two physicists Pekka Aalto and Harri Puurunen believed in this ambitious project and joined it. Docrates Ltd was founded in 2006 and its actual operations started in the premises of Eira hospital in October 2007 with specialists’ appointments and drug therapy. A number of minor investors also joined the project. A new building was built specially for Docrates Cancer Center in Jätkäsaari, which was opened in April 2009, offering also radiation therapy and imaging studies among its services. This is when Helsingin Lääkärikeskus became the major investor for Docrates.
