The medical expertise at The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment
is enhanced by our participation in national cancer research. As the only
hospital in California selected to participate in the National Cancer
Institute Community Cancer Centers Program, our Center is actively involved
in conducting cancer research that is shaping the future of cancer care.
Our partnership with the National Cancer Institute, as well as academic,
industry and pharmaceutical research programs, enables our patients to
participate in clinical and research trials that are shaping the future
of cancer care. Participation in clinical trials gives cancer patients
access to new medications, technologies and procedures frequently not
available elsewhere. Members of our specialty teams work together to provide
trial participants with real-time, evidence-based care.
