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.
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.
From outcomes, to prudent management of resources, to caring and compassionate service, to innovative research, TriHealth operates in an environment of continuous quality improvement across its more than 80 locations. As the landscape of health care continues to evolve both nationally and locally, TriHealth is prepared to respond to the demand for more coordinated, patient-centered models of care with strong physician collaboration and leadership.
Recognition and Trust
For more than 20 years, TriHealth's cancer programs have merited accreditation by the American College of Surgeons. In 2010, the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care at Bethesda North Hospital became the first and only breast center in the region to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. The Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care also has been named a Breast Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. And, the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care offers the latest in detection and treatment, through research clinical trials, as it has done for many years.
More recently, we've been recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program. “This is one of the most significant certifications that the TriHealth system can achieve,” said Mark Witte, executive director of the TriHealth Cancer Institute. Learn more.
