General University Hospital in Prague

General University Hospital in Prague is one of the largest hospitals in the Czech Republic covering almost all specialties, providing a highly specialized care particularly in cardiology, vascular medicine, oncology, endocrinology and metabolic disorders, and psychiatry.
The hospital provides the care for the regions of Prague and Central Bohemia; however, it hosts many specialized centres providing care for the entire country.
The hospital is the principal teaching facility for the First Medical Faculty of Charles University. The two institutions together generate most of the medical research results in the Czech Republic. The First Medical Faculty alone is the largest educational medical establishment in the country.
Complex Cardiovascular Centre is the integral part of the GUH Prague. It provides a complex spectrum of services in cardiology and vascular medicine (except transplant program). Namely, the centre is providing an uninterrupted care for acute coronary syndromes, most of them being treated with direct PCI.

GUH Prague will supervise the conduct of the SECURE clinical trial in the Czech Republic.
