ProMedica Cancer Institute: Your Partner in Fighting Cancer
Anyone who has faced a potential cancer diagnosis knows that cancer screenings and treatments can sometimes be overwhelming. You want your questions answered. You want to understand all treatment options available to you. Most of all, you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are in good hands.
At ProMedica Cancer Institute, we believe the key to empowering our patients is to provide them with the most possible knowledge and best possible resources for handling the diagnosis. Whether you are undergoing a routine screening or receiving advanced treatments, our goal is to deliver high-quality care.
ProMedica Cancer Institute is proud to help lead the fight against cancer in the communities of northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. Through our own outreach initiatives and our partnerships with other organizations we work to increase awareness of cancer risks and to support the research that will one day find a cure for cancer.
To aid in those efforts, ProMedica Cancer Institute has created the largest cancer registry in northwest Ohio. This helps medical experts assess and maintain standards of care, improve patient outcomes and compare data to national cancer centers. ProMedica Cancer Institute offers comprehensive care to patients across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan through ProMedica’s hospitals, cancer centers and a strong network of cancer care physicians and providers.
