Saint Luke’s Cancer Institute

Hope is an important part of the arsenal that helps patients fight cancer, and it comes from knowing your care team is skilled, experienced, and has the right tools at hand.

Saint Luke’s offers the most advanced diagnostics and treatment options available, as well as access to National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical trials.

But it takes more than quality treatment to give patients the hope they need to fight this disease. It takes emotional and spiritual support as well. That’s why the cancer care our patients receive includes the best clinical treatment combined with emotional and spiritual support. For example our new STAR (Survivorship, Training, And Rehab) Program helps survivors recover from both the emotional and physical aspects of treatment.

At Saint Luke’s, we treat more than just the disease, we provide care to the whole person.
