Why Choose Us for Cancer Care

Cancer Center Feature Pretty

At The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Cancer Institute, our patients receive superior cancer care, access to clinical trials, and the latest diagnostic tests and treatments, along with the support that comes from a welcoming community environment. Accredited since 1995 by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer as a teaching hospital cancer program, we offer coordinated and comprehensive care to not only cancer patients, but to their families as well.

The MedStar Health Cancer Network has joined forces with the American Cancer Society (ACS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable by pledging to support the “80% by 2018” initiative – a nationwide goal to increase colorectal cancer screening rates to 80% in the next two years.
