"We exist to prevent and cure cancer," is the mission of the Arizona Cancer Center, a designated comprehensive care center at the Unversity of Arizona Health Sciences Center. The National Cancer Insitute has awarded this designation and people come from throughout the world for treatment.
The Peter and Paul Fasseas Cancer Center, which opened in 2007, provides clinical trials, research, and treatment for cancer patients. The state of the art facility is a part of University Medical Center and operates in conjunction with the National Cancer Institute. The center also runs the Native American Cancer Research Partnership with Northern Arizona University.
Patients can find clinical trials at the website listed below. Information about various types of cancer is also available on the website:
Appointments can be made at the Cancer Center for either oncology or radiology. Appointment days are scheduled dependent upon the type of cancer: a breast cancer patient and a patient with prostate cancer or lymphoma may be given different appointment days.
The Cancer Center, a remodel of the old Tuccson General Hospital, was designed by CO Architects of Los Angeles, CA and won a citation of merit award for the design of the ambulatory cancer facility. Photographs of the facility:
