Abstract: 
In this paper, we apply a Voronoi diagram to map the existing design of oncological care in Poland. First, we correlate the actual organization of care with epidemiological data on cancer survival rate and morbidity. On this basis, we build a proxy for localized demand for oncological care. As a further step, we construct a Voronoi diagram to discuss the project of a national network for oncology in Poland based on comprehensive cancer centers and institutes, aiming at improving accessibility and equality in access to specialized oncological care.
