Salem Health Cancer Institute and OHSU Knight Cancer Institute
Partnering to improve cancer care throughout Oregon
We have had an affiliation with OHSU Knight Cancer Institute since 2007. Through this important partnership, cancer specialists from Salem Health Cancer Institute and Oregon Health & Science University are collaborating to strengthen a comprehensive, coordinated cancer program.
Mid-Willamette Valley cancer patients benefit from the best cancer care and services available, right here in Salem.
Our collaboration with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute helps us offer patients access to all levels of cancer care, including a variety of specialty services such as clinical trials, gynecologic oncology, and genetic counseling.
Through this partnership, Cancer Institute patients now have access to one of the largest cooperative groups for cancer clinical trials in the United States without having to travel to Portland. In addition, a genetic counselor from the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute sees patients in Salem twice a week.
