About us

Our mission is to fight cancer by providing advanced patient care, clinical trials, applied and basic research, and know-how transfer. We are constantly striving to improve the therapy method of ion beam therapy, to increase its effectiveness and to make the treatment accessible to more people. A team of more than 250 people is working on achieving this objective.

The center

MedAustron, our cancer treatment and research center is located in Wiener Neustadt, Lower Austria, about 50 kilometers south of Vienna. It is unique in Austria and also one of only six comparable centers worldwide. We work as an independent outpatient clinic, but are networked with Austrian and international clinics, universities and research institutes. Organized in the form of a limited liability company, MedAustron is indirectly owned by the State of Lower Austria.

MedAustron is also the teaching and research site of the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences for the divisions of radiation oncology and medical physics.
