Parkview Cancer Institute — Advancing Cancer Care

The Parkview Cancer Institute is a new, forward-thinking approach to cancer care. Our focus is on the patient experience, and we’ve designed our model of care to bring the best possible cancer care to the region.

Recognizing this journey and striving to make it less stressful to patients and their families is the idea that underlies the Parkview Cancer Institute, opening in early 2018. We designed both the Institute’s physical building and the care processes it encompasses to create a new, forward-thinking approach to cancer care.​
