About the Breast Unit

The Breast Unit of the CCC was created in 2011, under the leadership of Dr Fátima Cardoso, and is now working at full speed, managing around 1200 new breast cancer patients a year (all stages). As a multidisciplinary team, we work together in the same physical space, facilitating patient care and comfort. All cases (early and advanced) are discussed weekly at an MDT. The team is currently composed of five dedicated medical oncologists, three breast surgeons and two plastic surgeons (our surgical team is considered a Level 3 Oncoplastic Unit), three radiation oncologists, two breast pathologists, four breast radiologists, six specialized breast nurses, a psycho-oncologist, a palliative care physician, as well as dedicated administrative, supportive and technical personnel. In May 2016, our Breast Unit was granted European Certification by Breast Centres Certification (Certificate No. 1025/00). It was the 1st certified Breast Unit in Portugal.

About the Champalimaud Foundation

The Champalimaud Foundation is a private, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to making advances in biomedical science, created in 2004, through an endowment by a successful industrialist and financer Portuguese entrepreneur António de Sommer Champalimaud, who decreed that following his death, part of his fortune should be used to create an international project in the field of biomedicine. The Foundation focus on three main areas: cancer, neurosciences, and vision.

The Champalimaud Foundation headquarters and clinics are located in the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, a state-of-the-art facility completed in 2010 and now supporting cutting-edge basic and translational research sided with clinics. The core mission is to offer premier clinical services, including early diagnosis, treatment, counselling, and follow-up, as it strives to define new standards of patient care via specialized Disease Management Teams. Designed by the architect, Charles Correa, this project returned to the public a part of the important riverside area next to Belem. At the point where the River Tejo meets the Atlantic and from where the great Portuguese navigators once set sail, the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown seeks to celebrate not only the area’s epic past but also an outstanding moment in the recent history of our country.

Opened in 2011 with the mission of offering high-quality clinical care, primarily in oncology, the Champalimaud Clinical Centre occupies most of the lower floors of the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown. With patient comfort and well-being, a primary concern, the Centre contains spacious reception areas with views of the indoor tropical garden, creating a relaxing atmosphere. The modern diagnosis, examination and treatment rooms are arranged to provide an efficient service, supported by the best human resources and technical staff. An exterior garden, purpose-designed to transmit sensations of tranquillity, peace, and well-being, has been created especially for the use of patients who wish to receive treatment there.

The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown is being expanded with the construction of the new Botton-Champalimaud Pancreatic Cancer Centre.
