The European Medical Center (EMC) was founded in 1989 to provide medical assistance to foreigners living in Moscow with the participation of the French company, Europ Assistance. The clinic originally consisted of several offices of foreign physicians. The initiative was a great success, which allowed the owners to expand the practice and invite new doctors. In 2001 a multidisciplinary clinic was opened in a historic mansion on Spiridonievsky Pereulok, which combined an outpatient department, a diagnostic center and an inpatient hospital. It was the first private clinic in Moscow to offer Western-standard medical care at a high level of service.
With the arrival of new leadership in 2004, there were further expansions in clinical practice primarily due to developments in surgery, with a tremendous increase in the number of operations performed. Urgent and emergency care services were also added. By this time, a unique international team of doctors had formed at the European Medical Center and a strategy had been formulated for developing academic competence and introducing advanced methods of diagnosis and treatment.
In 2009, EMC opened a 5000 sq.m new clinic building on Orlovsky Pereulok with an outpatient clinic department, an inpatient hospital, an intensive care unit and four ultra-modern operating suites, as well as its own diagnostic center with CT, MRI, mammography and endoscopy. The new building also housed a Urology Center, Cardiology and Neurology Departments, and the European Clinic of Sports Traumatology and Orthopedics: the largest private orthopedic clinic in Russia.
With the opening of the modern clinic on Orlovsky Pereulok, the European Medical Center had become one of the largest private medical institutions in the country. Unlike most private clinics, EMC focused not only on the "basically healthy patient," but also on providing comprehensive care for the most serious diseases. EMC was one of the first in private medicine to develop oncology services. In 2010 the Oncology and Hematology Clinic was opened, which was the first in Moscow to offer patients modern European and American cancer treatment protocols.
To further expand EMC's capabilities, and primarily to organize the full cycle of cancer care, a new multidisciplinary hospital was opened in 2012 on Schepkina Street. The modern, seven-story, 15,500 sq. meter building was equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to provide diagnostic and medical care at the highest international standards. The building contains a comfortable inpatient hospital, modern operating units equipped with the latest Da Vinci Si HD robotic surgical system, an intensive care unit, the Breast Center, the Urology Clinic, the Gynecology and Gynecologic Oncology Clinic, the Clinic of Cardiovascular Diseases, the Clinic of Reproductive and Prenatal Medicine, the Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory, and outpatient areas. In addition to the Emergency and Urgent Care Departments, Urgent Surgery and the Department of Radiodiagnostics also work around the clock.
There was a further expansion of the clinic's scientific and practical potential in 2014 with the arrival of world-renowned specialists in neurosurgery, spine surgery, liver surgery and transplantation, and reconstructive and general urology. The Clinic of Neurology and Neurosurgery have implemented modern technologies to perform complex operations on patients with diseases of the brain and spinal cord.
In May 2015, the hospital on Schepkina Street opened the Department of Nuclear Medicine Diagnostics which includes PET/CT and SPECT-CT scanners and the Cyclotron and Radiochemical Laboratory Complex for synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals, in addition to the Radiotherapy Department with the latest TrueBeam and Trilogy linear accelerators. Thus, today EMC has the capacity to provide the full cycle of cancer care, including the use of different diagnostic methods (radiotherapy and molecular), and conservative, surgical, or radiotherapy treatments, all carried out according to international standards. The Oncology Institute was formed at the Clinic of Oncology and Hematology, which brings together leading experts in radiology, oncology, surgery, and radiation therapy, from the US, Western Europe, Israel, and Russia. Together with the EMC's Medical School, (emc-school.ru) the Institute develops and implements programs of continuing professional education for physicians in the following areas: pathomorphology, breast diseases, oncology, radiology, radiotherapy and surgery.
Since its inception, the European Medical Center has assisted not only adults but also children. Over time, the number of pediatric patients greatly increased and it was decided to open a children's clinic with its own hospital and outpatient department. The Children's Clinic at the European Medical Center on Trifonovskaya Street opened its doors in April, 2013. It brought together highly qualified specialists in children's neurology, dermatology, allergy, otorhinolaryngology, endocrinology, hematology, surgery and other areas. The clinic features unique specializations, such as children's epilepsy, child psychology and psychotherapy. Today it is the only private children's medical institution with a 24-hour inpatient hospital.
Since its beginning as a small "French" clinic in Moscow's historical center, EMC has developed into a major medical holding company, consisting of four multi-disciplinary medical centers, which are visited annually by more than 250,000 patients who have opted for European-quality medicine in Moscow. Today, EMC employs more than 600 doctors in more than 56 specialties from the United States, Western Europe, Israel and Russia.
As we have expanded our medical competence, we have maintained the values of EMC’s unique clinical practice formed over the last 27 years. Patient care and service that meet the best international standards have always been and will remain our highest priority.

Extremely friendly staff. Doctors are well-trained, always up-to-date concerning new methods and also very friendly. The EMC is really service oriented - long working hours (even on weekends) you don't have to wait long to get an appointment. Even doctors will write and answer e-mails.
Brilliant and professional service. Never had such good service before in any other country as I travel a lot for business. I had visited other hospitals in other continents before.
My father comes here for his medical services, and he uses only the best, so I trust my father, and I believe this facility is a great place to come for medical services, so I would recommend, clean, and is modern and looks very nice compared to other Russian medical facilities
