Our health comes first and foremost, and medical institutions and doctors need continuous support in this context. Whenever necessary, we respond positively to the needs of the healthcare system and now we have decided to concentrate our efforts on the Oncological Hospital in the city of Cluj-Napoca, a community of which we have been part of for over 20 years. We are also pleased to see that both the state and the private system are deeply involved and support key and relevant initiatives in these exceptional times.”
“We have full confidence that together, acting responsibly and caring one for another, we will overcome this situation. It is also very important that we remain united even after this crisis is over,” Mihai concludes.
The Cluj-Napoca Oncological Institute was founded in 1929 and provides preventive, curative, and palliative medical services in the field of oncology, while carrying out educational and research initiatives.
Cognizant Softvision has been in Romania since 1998, and the company has continuously grown over the years into a powerful team of more than 1,800 employees, with studios in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iași, Timișoara, and Baia Mare.
