Why the Cancer Institute?
The Cancer Institute’s hematologic staff collaborates closely to provide advanced testing for accurate diagnosis and staging of blood cancer. We are leaders in our field, and our program is accredited by FACT for our exceptional patient care and laboratory practices.
Our scientists and physicians continually research new treatments and cures that allow us to bring medical discoveries from the laboratory directly to you. These breakthroughs help us to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
We don’t have a standard treatment plan for every patient. Instead, we recognize you as an individual who has specific circumstances and needs, and then we develop a treatment plan that’s most effective for you and your particular cancer. We understand how difficult it is to be diagnosed with cancer and how tiring and time-consuming the treatment process can sometimes be. So our goal is to make it as easy as possible on your body, mind and schedule. As an additional support, our 24/7 Care Navigator remains by your side through the entire journey, guiding you and your family to the care and help you need and deserve.
