Overview

The Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Comprehensive Cancer Center continues to earn recognition as one of the top institutions of its kind in the country. Our cancer center serves all of North Carolina, including Winston-Salem, Raleigh and Durham and is convenient to access for patients in South Carolina and Virginia.

The center’s designation by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a comprehensive cancer center was renewed for five years, making it one of three comprehensive cancer centers in North Carolina, one of 51 in the country and one of the very few to hold the designation continuously since 1990.

The NCI designation means that a Comprehensive Cancer Center meets the highest U.S. government standards for cancer research and patient care. Studies show that patients who receive care at an NCI-designated cancer center can improve their long-term survival rates by up to 25%.

As an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Wake Forest Baptist Health is recognized for the highest levels of expertise and a commitment to patient care, cancer research, including clinical trials, and education. The rapid pace of discovery and the early availability of many new cancer treatments at NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, gives us an advantage in offering our cancer patients early access to the latest therapies and treatment options, sometimes even months or years before non-NCI cancer centers.

The Comprehensive Cancer Center has a team of 120 clinicians representing all aspects of cancer care including those in the fields of Hematology and Oncology, Gynecologic Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Surgical Oncology and Colon and Rectal Surgery. These specialists are committed to offering patients the latest treatments, technologies and clinical trials, including precision medicine, cancer genomics, and immunotherapy. The cancer center also provides a range of support programs to help patients and their family members successfully address the various non-medical issues they face while dealing with cancer.
