Robert H. Lurie comprehensive cancer center of northwestern University

At the Lurie Cancer Center, personalized, life-changing cancer care starts with an exceptional team.

As one of only 51 Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country — and the only one in Illinois to receive an “Exceptional” rating from the National Cancer Institute — Lurie Cancer Center is leading efforts to translate research into better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. Our patients benefit from world-class resources, unrivaled expertise, and access to hundreds of clinical trials offering leading-edge treatments for nearly every type of cancer.

Our cancer program at Northwestern Medicine’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital is recognized as one of the top 10 in the nation, and No. 1 in Illinois by U.S. News & World Report. As a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation’s top cancer centers, our doctors help develop guidelines that are used by institutions around the world to improve patient care.

But it’s more than these achievements that set us apart. Collaborating across disciplines, Lurie Cancer Center’s physicians and scientists combine scientific discovery and medical innovation with individualized, compassionate care to design the best plan for each patient. Our specialists work together to provide a full spectrum of medical, surgical, and radiation treatment options, as well as state-of-the-art techniques using immunotherapies (including CAR T-cell therapy), precision medicine, interventional radiology, the region’s largest stem cell transplant program, and advanced technologies to improve diagnosis and treatment.

We believe that better cancer care means caring for more than your cancer. Our expansive cancer genetics, supportive oncology, rehabilitation and survivorship programs provide services to support our patients and their families, before, during, and after treatment.

As Northwestern Medicine continues to grow, Lurie Cancer Center will expand our efforts to drive discoveries and deliver breakthroughs. Learn more about the Lurie Cancer Center at cancer.northwestern.edu or call 312-695-0990 to schedule an appointment.
