The LCRP Enhances Patient Care as Part of the National Cancer Institute's Community Cancer Centers Program

As a participant in the National Cancer Institute's Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP), one of only 16 original sites selected in 2007, the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion (LCRP) at St. Joseph's/Candler is quickly becoming a national destination for comprehensive and advanced cancer care. The LCRP is one of only 21 hospitals nationwide that have been selected to continue to participate in this advanced program.

The NCCCP is designed to:

  • Establish a network of community cancer centers that provide the latest and most advanced cancer care to patients within their own communities
  • Set national standards for community cancer centers
  • Provide community cancer centers with the tools and knowledge necessary to offer state-of-the-art cancer care.

The NCCCP has seven primary areas of focus, including:

  • Improve quality of care
  • Enhance survivorship and palliative care
  • Increase clinical trial availability and participation
  • Expand information technology, including electronic health records
  • NCI guidelines for biospecimens for research
  • Reduce cancer healthcare disparities
