ABOUT THE CANCER INSTITUTE
The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute is a local, non-profit organization working to ease the burden of cancer in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The three main program areas that we focus on are: community and patient services, hospital and practice support services, and cancer surveillance.
The Cancer Institute is unique in that it is an independent, exclusively local entity. This means that we have the flexibility to respond directly to the evolving needs of the community we serve. The Cancer Institute invests all of its resources in this region.Click here to view our 25th Anniversary thank you video.
