About Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute
The Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute is one of the largest
cancer centers in South Florida and is accredited as a Comprehensive Cancer
Center by the American College of Surgeons. The Lynn Cancer Institute
treats more than 4,000 patients each year in facilities such as the Harvey
& Phyllis Sandler Pavilion, the state-of-the-art cancer center. While
traditional cancer treatment requires patients to travel from physician
to physician and manage their own scheduling, the Sandler Pavilion centralizes
services in one location. This simplifies the entire process for patients,
from diagnosis and treatment, to Wellness and Survivorship programs and
allows patients to focus on one thing — recovery.
More than 20 oncology physicians and a full complement of oncology professionals
are on staff to serve the patients at the Lynn Cancer Institute. Patients
receive treatment and services from specialists in genetics, surgery,
radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology and imaging. In addition,
staff includes research nurses, who improve patient access to clinical
trials and the most advanced forms of treatment.
