About the Tri-Cities Cancer Center / Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation
The Tri-Cities Cancer Center began as a dream for a place within our region not only to treat cancer, but also to care for those impacted by it. United in a common goal, local hospitals, individuals, civic groups, and businesses came together to make that dream a reality. The Center, a joint venture of Lourdes Health Network, Trios Health, and Kadlec Regional Medical Center, opened its doors in 1994 as a freestanding non-profit cancer treatment facility. Since then, the Tri-Cities Cancer Center has become a community resource for cancer treatment, support, education, and information. It is also a place where hope is intertwined with compassion, where dedicated professionals work alongside devoted volunteers, and services expand each year, due to the generous support of our community. It is a place where we stand together against a disease that affects us all.
The Foundation was established to support programs and services the Cancer Center provides to patients and their families at no cost. These services, which include our Nurse Navigators, Chaplains, and the Patient Financial Counselor help patients and their families through their cancer journey and provide financial and spiritual support in facing this difficult disease. The Foundation also supports community programs, like no-cost screenings, cancer-education presentations, and classes in our Wellness Center. We also house the region’s most comprehensive cancer education library, the Ralph R. Peterson Library, dedicated in 2010. The Cancer Center was built in 1994 by generous donations from our community. Thank you for continuing this legacy as we fight a disease that affects us all.
