Cancer. It's a word no one likes to hear and a diagnosis no one wants. We understand that caring for patients with cancer means caring for the whole patient—body, mind and spirit. At Northwestern Memorial Hospital, we put our patients first in an effort to deliver the best cancer care.
New Treatment Guidelines for Patients
Viewa new tool to empower patients with cancer and their caregivers to take a more active role in their treatment.
2011 Tumor Registry Report
is an integral part of our Comprehensive Cancer program that collects and maintains pertinent patient data required for reporting to the Illinois State Registry, National Cancer Data Base and the American College of Surgeons. This detailed cancer data is used for evaluation of cancer care, cancer incidence and outcome reporting studies.
Our Comprehensive Care
In partnership with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated "comprehensive" cancer center, we provide the best possible care to patients and their families and caregivers. The Lurie Cancer Center is also a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, which is an alliance of 21 of the country's leading cancer centers. This network is dedicated to enhancing cancer care by developing clinical practice guidelines which are updated each year to help patients understand treatment recommendations. Northwestern oncologists are active and key participants in cancer initiatives. Physicians also hold leadership roles in numerous professional organizations nationally.
