TriHealth Cancer Institute
At TriHealth Cancer Institute, we focus all our skills and resources on turning cancer patients into cancer survivors. Leading cancer experts throughout our system meet at a weekly "tumor board" to determine the best course of treatment for each patient.
Your care team works with your physician to create a plan that covers everything from insurance to testing to treatment and reflects your input and needs. As part of your individualized treatment, you may be able to participate in a clinical trial. Clinical research trials offer access to promising new treatments, and are part of the way new treatments are discovered. A cancer care navigator then helps you schedule appointments and stay on track. Whether you need surgery, radiology or chemotherapy, TriHealth Cancer Institute has expertise in all areas. We'll even help you find financial and personal support. When physicians, hospitals and communities work together to help you live better, not even cancer stands a chance.
Leading the Way in Brain Tumor Treatment
TriHealth’s Good Samaritan Hospital is the first hospital in the Midwest and the third in the U.S. to receive the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for brain tumor certification.
The certification by the Joint Commission is recognition of the quality of patient care, clinical excellence and a culture of excellence across the health system, among others. TriHealth’s Good Samaritan Hospital is the only hospital in the region to receive this certification.
The TriHealth/Mayfield Brain & Spine partnership provides our patients with the largest team of physicians, bringing the most clinical experience, of any neuroscience professionals in Southwest Ohio. More patients come to us, than any other health system, to receive care from our highly-trained experts.
TriHealth’s team-based approach includes regularly scheduled Tumor Board meetings where our brain tumor specialists along with our partners at Mayfield Brain & Spine, review challenging cases and recommend treatment plans. The Tumor Board includes the region’s only fellowship-trained neuro-oncologist along with neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and pathologists. The team reviews brain tumor scans and patient histories, discusses possible treatment plans, and arrives at a consensus opinion, which is then discussed with the patient and his or her family.
The brain tumor team treats all types of tumors, including glioma/glioblastoma, metastatic tumors, skull base tumors, meningioma, pituitary tumors, acoustic neuroma, lymphoma and spinal tumors. Advanced technologies available include intraoperative Airo® CT, stereotactic neuro-navigation, stereotactic radiosurgery, microscopic and endoscopic surgery, and systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy.
The TriHealth Cancer Institute wields the power of the full TriHealth system, which has been named among the country's Top 100 Most Integrated Health Networks 13 times.
TriHealth Cancer Institute provides patients with a full Multi-Disciplinary (MDC) program of care, with specialists in specific areas of cancer treatment. These committees have numerous specialty physicians focused on one cancer type (e.g. breast, GI, lung and melanoma) that all see patients in one visit to determine a plan of care. Patient advocates ensure seamless logistical, emotional and medical support throughout the cancer journey. With cancer specialists and facilities located throughout the Cincinnati region, care is provided close to where patients live and work. TriHealth Cancer Institute provides superior patient experience through integrated cancer care, with cutting-edge treatments and technologies, all provided in one location.
