An experienced and knowledgeable team at the forefront of cancer care.

UCHealth Cancer Care – Memorial Hospital Central offers the very best in cancer treatment options.

Because supporting you is our number-one goal, we will employ a multidisciplinary approach to your cancer care. Our nurse navigation team will be with you every step of the way, to help you understand your choices so you can make informed decisions about your treatment plan. And we partner with the CU School of Medicine, which helps us stay at the forefront of what’s new and effective in cancer treatment.

As a recognized world leader in cancer care, our commitment to you includes:

Multidisciplinary clinics. Cancer care at UCHealth significantly reduces the burden of travel, because you can have multiple appointments in the same visit and leave with a plan from our team of experts. This includes clinics specializing in brain and spine, breast, gastrointestinal and lung cancers.

Innovation. Offering the latest advancements in treatments, less-invasive procedures and state-of-the-art equipment.

Clinical trials. You might be eligible to participate in leading-edge care, which could give you access to treatment options years before they are widely available.

Quality leaders. We have earned official certification as a Quality Oncology Program from the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI). This prestigious recognition demonstrates a commitment to excellence and ongoing quality improvement. Ours is one of only three programs in Colorado that has earned this certification.

The gold standard. We have also been accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a program of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS), for our commitment to providing comprehensive, high-quality and multidisciplinary patient-centered care.

We treat the whole person, not just the disease.
