A Partnership Built on Excellence
The $10 million expansion of The Cancer Center of North Florida Regional Healthcare is the culmination of a unique partnership between Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, The Cancer Center, North Florida Regional Healthcare and a dedicated group of cancer survivors, who worked with us to bring a distinct perspective to the project, based on their personal journeys and experience as patients. This collaboration with our patients resulted in a comprehensive cancer treatment center that is nothing short of extraordinary… and at the pinnacle of cancer care today!
Founded in 1984, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS), the largest independent medical oncology/hematology practice in the United States, has built a national reputation for excellence that is reflected in exceptional and compassionate patient care, driven by innovative clinical research and cutting-edge technologies that help advance targeted treatments and genetically-based immunotherapies, and embodied by our outstanding team of highly-trained and dedicated physicians, clinicians and staff. Recognized by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) with a national Clinical Trials Participation Award, FCS offers patients access to more clinical trials than any private oncology practice in Florida. Prior to approval, 70% of new cancer drugs approved in 2015 for use in the U.S. were studied in clinical trials conducted with FCS participation.
The Cancer Center of North Florida Regional Healthcare is dedicated to helping patients accomplish one goal — Beat Cancer. We are part of a cancer program that is accredited by the American College of Radiology and the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program. The success of our program is a result of how we deliver care. We invest in state-of-the-art technology, our physicians are expert, experienced and dedicated, and our staff is caring, committed and driven to give patients all the support they need. The combination of these central components translates into the highest level of quality and patient safety.
