Levine Cancer InstituteAdvances Care for Carolinians
Innovation in healthcare not only means new discovery, like a breakthrough treatment, but also means improving upon long-established processes and procedures. The development of Levine Cancer Institute, which was announced in the fall of 2010, promises transformational innovations in both areas.
Not only will the Institute perform groundbreaking research on rare and complex cancers, it will improve the way cancer care and treatments are delivered to those who have received that most difficult of diagnoses.
A $20 million donation by the Leon Levine Foundation positioned Levine Cancer Institute as a major national player in the war on cancer. Carolinas HealthCare Foundation and community volunteers also pledged $5 million to support the start-up effort. In addition, CHS leaders announced plans to invest an additional $500 million in research and treatment over the next decade, supplemented by local philanthropy in communities served by Carolinas HealthCare.
