MENDOZA DEL PINO, Mario. Historical vision of the Provincial Teaching Oncology Hospital “María Curie” of Camagüey. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.2, pp.319-332. ISSN 1727-8120.

An investigation was carried out with the objective of describing the historical evolution of the Provincial Teaching Oncology Hospital “María Curie” of Camagüey. It was originated with the constitution of the League against Cancer in Camagüey in 1941 until its disappearance in 1960, achieving the initial purpose of building up an anti-cancerous dispensary. Due to the bad medical attention given by the republican governments, it stood out the generous gesture of the people of Camagüey with its economic contribution for the construction of this dispensary. With the triumph of the revolution it was turned into a hospital, which together with the development of the oncology in the province is currently a high scientific level center for the attention of the people. The information was obtained from personalities that took part in its creation, photos and papers of the period, along with documents of the Historical Archive of Camagüey.

Keywords : Cancer care facilities; history; Camagüey.
