A New Vision of Cancer Care

In 2010, a generous donation from Gayle and Tom Benson allowed Ochsner to create a state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary, academic cancer center that is located on the Ochsner Medical Center campus and organized by disease specific programs on a matrix model. Thousands of cancer patients in our region have been cared for at the center. 

Key Features of the Facility

This facility houses a Hematology Oncology Clinic and Chemotherapy Infusion Clinic. An area for Radiation Oncology and a Prostate Center are also incorporated into this facility. A multidisciplinary clinic in the building offers patients access to the full array of specialists and sub-specialists to meet the challenges presented by cancers.

The facility also addresses an important focus of the Ochsner multidisciplinary team approach: the social, physical and emotional impacts of cancer treatment. The Center is home to chemotherapy classes designed for patients and families embarking on chemotherapy treatment and support groups available to all members of the community. Educational resources and regular support groups open to both Ochsner patients and any member of the community seeking support as they or a loved one battles cancer are available at this Center as well.

Ochsner Cancer Institute

Ochsner’s commitment to innovative cancer research and therapy development began in 1939 with Dr. Alton Ochsner’s research on pulmonary malignancy and the link between smoking and lung cancer. It continues today at the Ochsner Cancer Institute.

The Ochsner Cancer Institute was founded in 1981 to coordinate cancer care and develop clinical research and supportive care programs. The institute has been designated as a Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) since 1983 and has been continuously funded by NCI since that time. In 2014, the CCOP was replaced by NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP).  Ochsner was awarded a five-year NCORP grant in 2014, the only such grant in the Gulf South.  Ochsner enrolls more than 300 patients in NCI NCORP and pharmaceutical industry sponsored clinical research trials annually.

Ochsner Cancer Institute is the largest system in the Gulf South region to provide multidisciplinary care for adult and pediatric cancer patients, treating over 7,000 new analytic cancer cases per year.  Our patients benefit from a collaborative approach to cancer care by a highly skilled team of physicians, oncology nurses, social workers, researchers, and other health care professionals.
