Bring world-class cancer care to your community
Bringing world-class cancer care to our community
The Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center is home to the region’s largest team of cancer specialists, providing leading-edge cancer treatment, clinical trials and genetic testing right here in our community.
Support from our generous friends, neighbors and loved ones makes it possible for us to expand the Henry Cancer Center to encompass nearly 140,000 square feet of healing space —enhancing the care, treatment, research, screening and prevention services we provide to our community every day.
Removing barriers to world-class cancer care
The incidence of cancer diagnoses in northeast Pennsylvania is higher than our national average, creating an unfortunate demand for specialized cancer care — and forcing more than 1 in 4 patients to travel out of our community to access it. The Henry Cancer Center expansion will change this. Advanced, effective cancer treatment will be available to more members of our community, right here at home.
Here are just some of the innovations that philanthropy supports at the Henry Cancer Center:
- Clinical innovation: Personalizing cancer treatment
Our Genomics and Population Health Screening program helps cancer patients by offering genomic testing as part of their routine care, helping to make their treatment truly personalized.
- Patient care and comfort: Expanding the Henry Cancer Center
The expansion will create a larger, more comfortable chemotherapy infusion center; provide more space for medical oncology and radiation oncology; and expand our bone marrow transplant program to accommodate more patients in a warm, welcoming setting.
- Leading-edge technology: Offering CyberKnife right here in NEPA
CyberKnife® uses highly targeted radiation to destroy cancerous tumors and lesions. Until now, this kind of highly specialized treatment was available only in cities like Philadelphia and New York.
- World-class education: Training the next generation of physicians
Cancer specialists provide education so that physicians and frontline caregivers are skilled in the most advanced cancer treatments, procedures and protocols — today and in the future.
Philanthropy is the foundation of everything we do at the Henry Cancer Center.
Powered by philanthropy from our community and beyond, the new Henry Cancer Center will be a restorative, modern space with nearly 140,000 square feet of patient care and clinical areas. Some of the expansions and upgrades that donors just like you are supporting:
