Hospital Partner Spotlight: James Graham Brown Cancer Center

Home of the first nationally accredited radiation oncology program in Louisville, the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville is committed to curing cancer through clinical and research programs. It works to generate new knowledge and more effective methods of care, while treating patients with compassion and respect. The center provides high-quality care for cancers throughout the body, and its programs include the only Bone Marrow and Transplantation Center in Louisville.

The center opened in 1981, thanks to a donation from the James Graham Brown Foundation, and was donated to the University of Louisville in 1987. In 1999, the center launched an initiative to increase cancer research in the state. Scientists strive to keep their work patient-oriented and focused on prevention. One of the Brown Cancer Center’s major focuses is tobacco-related cancers due to the prevalence of lung cancer in the region. Since 2009, research grants have grown from less than $1 million to more than $50 million in 2011.

The Brown Cancer Center is also a partner of KentuckyOne Health, an integrated comprehensive health system offering nearly 200 locations across the state of Kentucky and southern Indiana.

In 2012, the Brown Cancer Center partnered with Louisville CyberKnife to bring advanced CyberKnife® technology to the Louisville area. We are so pleased to be affiliated with such a prestigious center! For more information on the James Graham Brown Cancer center, visit their website.
