Alternative Cancer Treatments

Many patients are turning to alternative hospitals, cancer centers, and institutions for treatments. These new models for cancer care - referred to as a "hybrid approach" - offers patients more local access to clinical trials with a focus on multi-disciplinary care.

The hybrid approach is gaining popularity and attracting prominent doctors, researchers, and institutions. Advocates believe the new models offer patients better care than they would receive in a traditional community setting.

Doctors are attracted to this hybrid model because it allows them to practice medicine and conduct research at the same time, without systemic barriers of traditional settings.

Five prominent hybrid treatment centers in the United States are:

Baptist Health South Florida's Miami Cancer Institute

The Miami Cancer Institute recently announced a partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which is among the most renowned cancer centers in the country. The Center is directed by Michael Zinner, M.D., formerly chief surgeon at Bingham and Women's Hospital and clinical director of the Dana-Farber Cancer Center. The Miami Cancer Institute is the third member of Sloan Kettering's "cancer alliance," joining Lehigh Valley Health Network and Hartford Healthcare. This alliance allows the Miami Institute access to Sloan Kettering's clinical trials, physicians, and educational resources.

Christiana's Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute - Newark, Delaware

Headed by Nicholas Petrelli, M.D., since 2001, the Graham Cancer Center was selected as an NCI Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP) site. More information on the NCCCP can be found at the bottom of this page, under Resources. Graham established Delaware's High Risk Family Cancer Registry and Center for Translational Cancer Research, which led the state's reduction in cancer mortality. Graham is under consideration to be an NCI-designated Cancer Center. The decision is expected by 2018.

Spartanburg's Gibbs Cancer Center - South Carolina

Gibb's Cancer Center was also selected as an NCCCP site. Timothy Yeatman, M.D., formerly of Moffitt Cancer Center, directs Gibbs Cancer Center. Yeatman created the Guardian Research Network to match patients to clinical trials. Gibbs is currently constructing a new facility in which each floor will focus on a certain cancer site (such as the lung) rather than specialty (such as surgery or chemotherapy).

Carolinas Healthcare's Levine Cancer Institute - North Carolina

Derek Raghaven, M.D., directs the Levine Cancer Center to help patients in rural and suburban North Carolina and fully integrate into these communities. Dr. Raghaven formerly headed the Taussig Cancer Center at the Cleveland Clinic. The Levine Center currently operates about 25 sites in North and South Carolina, employing 130 clinicians and placing thousands of patients into clinical trials each year.

Inova's Schar Cancer Institute - Northern Virginia

Directed by the former president of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Donald "Skip" Trump, M.D., the Schar Cancer Institute is dedicated to advancing cancer care through genomics. It is part of a multihospital system and collaborates with pharmaceutical companies, with the goal of developing its own oncology drugs.
