University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center earns National Pancreas Foundation Center Designation

University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, part of the NCI-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, has been nationally recognized as an approved NPF Center by the National Pancreas Foundation. NPF Centers are awarded after a rigorous audit review to determine that an institution’s focus is on multidisciplinary treatment of pancreatic cancer, treating the “whole patient” with a focus on the best possible outcomes and an improved quality of life.

“We are honored that UH Seidman Cancer Center has been designated as NPF Center for treatment of pancreatic cancer,” said Theodoros N. Teknos, MD President and Scientific Director of Seidman Cancer Center and Deputy Director of Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. “Having the NPF Center designation will help distinguish University Hospitals as an institution whose focus is on providing the best and most innovative care possible.”

The news follows last month's announcement that the UH Seidman Cancer Center is also expanding to Lorain County, constructing a new cancer center in Avon, OH. “Our intent was to create a brand new, state-of-the-art facility, which will provide the residents of Lorain County and surrounding communities leading-edge cancer care close to home,” said Dr. Teknos.
