Our first priority is the safety and welfare of our patients and providing the highest standard of care in a comfortable, compassionate environment. We treat all types of cancer and work to eliminate the burden of cancer for all people. As an educational institution, we pride ourselves as the largest medical school in the country, servicing one of the most diverse populations and excelling on the brink of ground-breaking research.
At the University of Illinois Cancer Center, our mission is to eliminate the burden of cancer, for all individuals, in all populations, and in all manners in which cancer is experienced. We recognize that cancer does not discriminate, and therefore it is our responsibility to develop prevention, screening, treatment, and care to all who may be at risk. We are a regional leader in cancer disparities research, and as our investigators learn more about the origins, prevention and treatment of cancer, they translate these laboratory findings into advances in patient care and how information about cancer is communicated to the community.
We make it a priority to become part of the community. We have solid relationships with institutions, faith-based organizations and social services that are available to attend to our patients needs and can help administer assistance to our patients as they might experience the cancer journey.
