At the Forefront of Cancer Care & Discovery

At the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center, we know a cancer diagnosis can be life changing. We put minds at ease by seeing new patients quickly — and helping them understand their disease and treatment options. With more than 200 cancer specialists, innovative treatments, leading-edge research and clinical trials not available elsewhere, we're leading the way in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We are proud to be one of two NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in Illinois. The prestigious American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer has recognized our main campus location with its top accreditation and has designated UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial with its Outstanding Achievement Award, the highest award a community hospital can receive for excellence in cancer care.

Our scientists study disease at the molecular level and clinical researchers apply the knowledge discovered in our laboratories to create and test promising new treatments and procedures. Our experts bring patients hope as they test new therapies.

We also specialize in cancer control, prevention and population research while implementing new approaches to screening and prevention. We partner with our community by teaching state-of-the-art diagnostics to local physicians. And we work to encourage our neighbors to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes cancer screenings. A key part of our mission is community research to eliminate health disparities among ethnic and social groups.
