Innovative cancer care all in one center
At Loma Linda University Cancer Center one of our goals is to continue to find new and innovative options for cancer treatment. By using the most effective technology, conducting research and providing numerous support services, we provide comprehensive, individualized care when treating cancer.
Our extensive support services and cancer resource center is designed to bring cancer-related information to a single location for your convenience. The Resource Center has a variety of resources available to help you better understand cancer prevention, early detection, the latest treatment options, research and more. Our support groups and services are available to patients through their treatment and into our survivorship program.
Our center has the first hospital-based proton treatment center. With over 25 years experience in proton therapy our center is unsurpassed in the treatment of cancer using protons.
LLUCC's Oncology Clinical Research Program allows cancer patients, either newly diagnosed or those presently under treatment, to participate in leading-edge clinical trials through their own oncologists. The program also participates in cancer-control trials. Resources such as the Biospecimen Laboratory promote translational research by allowing patients to have their cancer tissue preserved for study, in order to help clinicians find better ways to treat the cancer.
Advanced imaging capabilities
At LLUCC we offer the latest diagnostic tools including the only breast MRI in the region. Our goal is to facilitate state of the art care from diagnosis through survivorship.
