With a cancer diagnosis comes many decisions, including where to go for treatment. At CMH, our patient-centered philosophy of care is at the core of our cancer treatment program, which began with a unique partnership with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.
The OHSU Knight Cancer Center is known worldwide for their contributions to the fight against cancer, and it is the only center in Oregon designated by the National Cancer Institute, an honor reserved for the top cancer centers in the U.S.
The cancer treatment program at CMH is the first of its kind for OHSU in Oregon and it serves as a prime example of determination, innovation, and a commitment to delivering medical excellence to patients, without the miles. Together, our goal is bring the highest quality cancer care possible to those living in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington.
In May of 2015, CMH announced a major expansion of its partnership with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. Plans include the design and construction of a 19,000 sq. ft., $16 million cancer treatment center. In its current space, the CMH/OHSU Cancer Center provides over 3,500 office visits and 2,500 infusion and chemotherapy visits per year.
Once the new state-of-the-art facility opens in late 2017, OHSU oncologists and hematologists are projected to increase the number of lives they touch on the North Coast to 5,700 clinic visits, over 3,000 infusions and chemotherapy visits, plus 1,800 radiation therapy visits after the first year in operation.
