(Centralny Szpital Kliniczny UM w Łodzi  – CKD UM)

On 1 January, 2012, the Central Teaching Hospital Institute of Dentistry of the Medical University of Lodz was created as a merger of two independent university medical institutions. The history of both hospitals was interwoven for years.

In 1996, building A-3 of the State Teaching Hospital of the Medical Academy of Lodz No. 2 became the new seat for the Institute of Dentistry, thus grouping all departments of the Division of Dentistry of the Medical Academy together in one place.

On 1 January, 1997, the Hospital, now including Psychiatry, Psychology, Nuclear Medicine and Radiology, was transformed into the Central Teaching Hospital of the Medical Academy of Lodz.

On  January, 1999, the Institute of Dentistry was transferred from the organizational structure of the Hospital to the Institute of Dentistry of the Medical Academy of Lodz, located at ul. Pomorska 251.

In 2002, the Hospital and the Institute of Dentistry were included in the structures of the newly created Medical University of Lodz.

On 30 October, 2015, the name of the Hospital was changed into the Central Teaching Hospital of the Medical University of Lodz.

The Central Teaching Hospital provides highly specialized dental services, round-the-clock and outpatient psychiatric care for adults and adolescents, as well as the assistance in the field of Nuclear Medicine, Preventive Medicine, Sports Medicine, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Metabolic Diseases, Immunology, Allergology, Neurology and Genetics. It also performs hospital care, with 186 inpatient beds and 56 outpatient beds in psychiatric departments at its disposal. In addition, it provides stationary care, intermediate ambulatory care, diagnostics, rehabilitation, and emergency medicine. Outpatient services are performed using the highest quality medical facilities.

The procedures from all dental specialties, i.e. Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Paediatric Dentistry, Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery, Prosthodontics, Implantology, Periodontology and Oral Mucosa Diseases, Orthodontics, Aesthetic Dentistry, and Oromandibular Dysfunctions are carried out in dental departments and clinics. Moreover, patients requiring maxillo-facial surgery, or allergy and nuclear medicine treatment can be hospitalised in the Centre. Aside from Dentistry, several other departments are available to provide 24-hour and day care in its other important area of activity, Psychiatry.
