Patients choose TGH’s Cancer Institute because we are:
Leaders in Academic Medicine
Our affiliation with USF Health Morsani College of Medicine positions us as a thriving academic medical institution. We blend world-class patient care, extensive medical teaching and revolutionary clinical research to provide our cancer patients with all-encompassing healthcare that is difficult to find at other cancer centers. Advanced diagnostic technologies and therapies are at our fingertips, and we can provide cutting-edge treatments for patients living with any type of cancer or condition that leads to cancer.
Focused on a Multidisciplinary Approach
At The Cancer Institute, we strongly emphasize compassionate and personalized care that focuses on the whole patient. That starts with the experienced specialists we’ve hand selected from around the country to join our collaborative team. Our highly skilled physicians, oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurses, pathologists, geneticists and other professionals work to recommend the most appropriate treatments. In addition, dedicated Care Navigators are assigned to each patient and provide unending support and information throughout the entire process.
Armed with detailed information, our experts meet regularly during tumor boards and design treatment plans to suit each patient’s specific needs. Potential approaches range from chemotherapy and outpatient or inpatient radiation therapy options (such as TrueBeam) to immunotherapy and surgical intervention.
Most importantly, TGH is a comprehensive hospital featuring all medical specialties. This means our cancer patients can easily receive care from other in-house experts to effectively address any unique health situation that may arise during cancer treatment. As a team, we work tirelessly together to provide the best outcomes for our patients.
Recognized Nationally & Globally for Cancer Care
Top 10% in the Nation and Commission on Cancer (CoC) Accreditation
At TGH, we are passionate about helping patients and their families who have been affected by cancer. Our dedication has earned us recognition as a High Performing Hospital in Cancer care by U.S. News & World Report for 2023-24, meaning we are ranked among the top 10% of U.S. hospitals.
Through our commitment to being a national and global leader in cancer care, TGH is accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality quality program established by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). With this accreditation, TGH’s Cancer Institute is recognized for meeting 34 quality care standards, taking a multidisciplinary approach to delivering high-quality, patient-centered cancer care, and demonstrating a commitment to improving patient outcomes and quality of life for all cancer patients.
At the Forefront of Innovative Cancer Treatment
The world of cancer treatment changes at a lightning-fast pace, with technological advances driving many radiation and surgical therapies. As a result, our cancer doctors and specialists have the resources and the facilities to provide incredibly comprehensive care via therapies and state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging tools. This not only allows our team to accurately diagnose and map malignancies but also gives us the opportunity to treat cancers more precisely than ever before.
Not all cancer needs to be treated with surgery. In fact, TGH’s cancer surgeons are playing instrumental roles in promoting clinical trials where patients are being cured of cancer without surgery. But when surgical intervention is required, our world-renowned experts bring a wealth of experience and skill to the table, ensuring the best results and improved quality of life for our patients.
Dedicated to Patient-Focused Cancer Care
Cancer care isn’t just about treating a patient—it’s about treating the person and the loved ones behind the condition. That’s why cancer treatment at TGH also involves a vast array of support services, including social, psychological, nutritional and financial counseling for patients.
In addition, we pride ourselves on our ability to see patients quickly—because the last thing anyone wants to do when they might have cancer is to wait months for an appointment. Our team works hard to expedite this process so that you can meet with a doctor, undergo tests and biopsies and get the answers you need sooner rather than later.
