Novant Health launches Cancer Institute to unite regional expertise
WINSTON-SALEM — Novant Health has integrated cancer services and clinical trials across the region to create the Novant Health Cancer Institute, a regional resource for front-line treatment and care.
The Cancer Institute will bring Novant Health’s cancer treatment, counseling and support centers under one umbrella, enabling patients and health care providers to benefit from the collective resources and remarkable patient care.
“Building on the decades of expertise within our walls, the Novant Health Cancer Institute has dedicated the last several years to expanding access to care for patients across North Carolina,” said Dr. Steven Limentani, system physician executive for the Novant Health Cancer Institute and chief scientific officer for Novant Health. “As a united entity with locations across the region, we are bringing clinical trials and invaluable cancer care closer to home for Novant Health patients.”
The Novant Health Cancer Institute treats rare and common cancers utilizing an aggressive, research-based approach tailored to address each individual patient’s physical and emotional needs.
The institute is nationally recognized as one of the top providers of cancer care in the region. Many of the institute’s programs have received national recognition for outstanding outcomes in diagnosis and treatment from organizations such as the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
In 2020, the Novant Health Cancer Institute has expanded to include:s
- The state-of-the-art Novant Health Wallace Cancer Institute in Salisbury
- The expansion of the Novant Health Derrick L. Davis Cancer Institute in Winston-Salem to include developmental therapeutics
- The opening of Novant Health Weisiger Cancer Institute in Charlotte (October 2020)
Providing cancer care close to where a patient lives is a guiding principle for our Cancer Institute. Learn more about the Novant Health Cancer Institute at NovantHealth.org/cancer or https://youtu.be/6YRmrrr-QVs.
