UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre addresses the need for radiation therapy services in the Southeast region, offering equal access to state-of-the-art treatment and imaging services for public and private patients. The Cancer Centre is built on UPMC's "hub and satellite" model, linking patients being treated at Whitfield to the expertise and technology available at UPMC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, one of the top cancer care providers in the United States.We participate in research programmes through the All Ireland Co-operative Oncology Research Group (ICORG) and the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG).
UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre prides itself on being dedicated to quality improvement and patient safety; international accreditation was granted by Joint Commission International (JCI) in 2008. The ethos of the Centre has always been to provide a patient focussed service and feedback from our patients is a crucial part of our development.
