About The Cancer Institute


2016 marked the 25th Anniversary of the Northeast Regional 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 the Cancer Institute focuses 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 the organization has the flexibility to respond directly to the evolving needs of the community it serves. The Cancer Institute invests all of its resources in this region

Our primary service area includes the following Counties: Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming – with additional services in Bradford, Carbon, Lehigh, Lycoming, Northampton, Sullivan, and Tioga.

The Cancer Institute is your local resource for cancer education services, regional statistics and
information on cancer.
