All too often, barriers – like where and how people live – separate patients from the world-class cancer care they need. Our mission? To tear those barriers down.

Here's how we're doing it:

  • With our unique hybrid academic and community care model, we’re pioneering world-class medicine, then bringing it directly to patients at more than 25 locations across the Carolinas.
  • Selected as part of the elite Bone and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network, we're offering patients unprecedented access to cutting-edge clinical trials for blood cancers.
  • Supported by two grants totaling $14.1 million, we're leading a team to improve access to high quality, evidence-based care for sickle cell patients in the Southeast.
  • As the world’s first cancer network to earn Planetree designation, the highest distinction recognizing patient-centered care, we never stop putting patients first.
