Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is proud to be among only 40 in the United States that are designated as Comprehensive Cancer Centers by the National Cancer Institute, the world’s foremost authority on cancer. We are the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in Tennessee that treats all cancer types and patients of all ages.
Since 2007, Vanderbilt-Ingram has also been a member of National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). This network of the world’s leading cancer centers have joined together to develop the guidelines for care that other oncologists follow and to improve the effectiveness and quality of care for patients everywhere.
Centers in these elite groups consult with each other and, when a patient’s case suggests it, refer to one another. After all, cancer is the competition.
