The goal of Sylvester’s Cancer Prevention and Wellness clinic is to provide high quality, patient centered care to firefighters and other occupational groups at increased risk of cancer. The clinic builds on Sylvester's ongoing work with firefighters across Florida over the past four years as part of the Firefighter Cancer Initiative (FCI), which aims to understand and address the excess cancer burden among firefighters. Clinic visits will focus on prevention and early detection cancer endorsed by NFPA 1582 standards and covered by most insurance carriers.
Our dedicated medial staff have been uniquely trained to address the unique needs of active and retired firefighters. Appointments are available at our Downtown, Coral Gables, and Plantation locations and tailored to individual need. Based on such need, screenings will include, though not be limited to: breast, cervical, colorectal, esophageal, lung, prostate, thyroid, and skin cancers. Included in the clinic visit will also have opportunities to participate in firefighter cancer related research.
