Cancer Institute

About Us

Our No.1 priority of the UC Cancer Institute (UCCI) is to make the most advanced care readily available to the people of our Greater Cincinnati metropolitan area.

This level of care is best provided by highly-trained physicians who work collaboratively in a multidisciplinary setting to personalize the treatment of every cancer patient who seeks our services.

Although we have the ability to treat every patient with cancer that comes to us, we focus a great deal of our efforts on the treatment of patients with complex and advanced disease who cannot be treated elsewhere in the metropolitan area.

Another important part of our mission is to advance the field by conducting cutting-edge basic and clinical research to improve the outcomes for patients with a variety of cancers. We will not be satisfied until we make sure that no patient in our region needs to go outside our area to receive the best cancer care.
