NCI designation places Sylvester among the top cancer centers in the nation. Sylvester is one of only two cancer centers in Florida, and the 71st in the nation, to achieve this prestigious recognition.
Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center is the only university-based comprehensive cancer center and only NCI-designated cancer center in the region. With more treatment options and more clinical trials than most hospitals in the southeastern United States, Sylvester is advancing cancer care in the region and beyond – all in pursuit of your cure.Clinical Trials Research
Sylvester is often among the first cancer centers in the world to offer access to the newest investigational therapies. In South Florida, Sylvester has the only Phase 1 Clinical Trials program — the first step in evaluating how patients respond to novel investigational treatments.
Cancer prevention strategies, such as the Firefighter Cancer Initiative and the Sylvester Game Changer™ Vehicle, seek to understand why certain occupational and ethnic groups have higher cancer rates than the general population.
Sylvester is the only academic, university-based comprehensive cancer center in the region. That means our team of over 300 cancer-focused physicians and researchers is not only elevating the quality of life-saving care today, but also training the cancer experts of tomorrow.
