The Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center participates in national cancer research as an affiliate with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Providence St. Mary Medical Center decides which trials to participate in based on which are most likely to benefit local patients.
The Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center offers cancer research for cancers including breast cancer, lymphoma, non-small cell lung cancer, prostate cancer, sarcoma, gastrointestinal, gynecological cancer, leukemia, and small-cell lung cancer.
The studies have strict requirements, and not everyone qualifies. Generally, if a patient at Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center qualifies, a member of the care team will discuss the option with him or her. But patients also are welcome to bring up the possibility with their physicians.
