    A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event and can be filled with stress and anxiety. The Bassett Cancer Institute understands the challenges you and your family are facing, and we’re here to help.

    Deciding where to receive treatment and follow-up care following a cancer diagnosis is an important decision. The Bassett Cancer Institute offers a nationally accredited, multidisciplinary team approach to cancer care, in an academic setting. Since nearly all forms of cancer call for more than one type of treatment, Bassett’s medical, radiation and surgical oncologists work together to focus on the unique needs of each individual patient. Support services like nutritionists, social workers, drivers, financial advisors and nurse navigators will support you and your family with the resources and guidance that you will need.  

    Bassett's Cancer Program has been continuously accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer since 1947, one of the longest, continuous accreditations in the nation, and our registered nurses in the Bassett Cancer Institute are oncology certified.
