Cancer patients are at the heart of our work. Our hospital provides the best care available, in part because our multidisciplinary clinics are centered on specific diseases rather than physician specialties in surgery or oncology. This approach recognizes the systemic nature of cancer, providing a broader perspective and ensuring that the patient’s full medical team reviews every facet of diagnosis and treatment.
Our patients benefit in other ways from RPCI’s clinical advantages:
Our multidisciplinary approach to the RPCI mission brings together faculty from different disciplines, encouraging discussion and collaboration. Because our laboratory and clinical facilities share a single integrated campus, there is frequent interaction between basic researchers and clinicians. The same spirit of collaboration advances our work in the larger community. RPCI has established strong relationships with other institutions in this region and in other parts of the nation.
