Comprehensive, precision cancer therapy

It's normal to be anxious when you are diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is a scary word. But there's one thing you can be fully confident about — the comprehensive, compassionate care you will receive at The University of Toledo Medical Center’s Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center.

Our highly qualified oncology team will offer the guidance and support you need from diagnosis to treatment to adjusting to life after cancer.

The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center — advanced, precision cancer care

Our medical oncologists provide the most up-to-date cancer therapy and precision cancer treatment in the region. We understand that every patient is unique and partner with you to choose the best treatments.

The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center provides some of the most sophisticated diagnostic tools and treatments available anywhere in the world. That's why patients — no matter their type or stage of cancer — come to Toledo from throughout northwest Ohio and beyond. And it's why many outlying hospitals refer their most complex and rare cancer cases to us.

Our comprehensive cancer center is uniquely positioned to conduct innovative research. Members of our medical staff specialize in medicine, surgery, radiology, pathology, oncology, radiation oncology and hematology.

Our patients are treated with the newest technology and treatments. We were one of the first facilities in the country to use Edge radiosurgery — the most precise and accurate radiation therapy available. Our physicians are the most experienced in the region in treating patients with this minimally invasive surgery.

We are excited to be at the forefront of the use of precision medicine — targeted cancer therapies that match a patient's unique genetic and molecular profile. Precision therapies are the future of cancer management. The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center is rapidly expanding the number of therapies it offers, allowing us to provide the best and most individualized treatment available.

Our patients also have the opportunity to enroll in clinical research trials that further our knowledge and our ability to treat cancer.

This is true personalized, precision care.

A team approach to cancer management 

The specialists, therapists and support services staff at the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center work together to offer comprehensive care —from your initial visits and consultations, through diagnosis and treatment and into recovery.

Our team of cancer specialists meets each week to discuss each cancer case and to create the best multidisciplinary treatment plan for each individual.

We believe that this collaborative approach helps our patients heal and offers the highest standard of care. Our goal is to reduce your anxiety and empower you throughout your treatment.

At the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center, our focus is on you.

In 2018, the Dana Cancer Center completed a triannual American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer (CoC) cancer program accreditation survey and achieved full accreditation status with commendation. We have also been recognized as one of the top 100 oncology programs by Becker's Hospital Review.


Enrollment completed in first clinical precision therapy trial

Precision research and the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center at The University of Toledo Medical Center just completed enrollment in its first clinical precision therapy trial in which a patient’s own immune system is stimulated by a new molecular based technology to uniquely attack cancer in advanced malignancy patients who failed standard therapy. The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center led a team involving 19 sites across the country and was the lead accrual site.

The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center staff rocks it in pink

Savage Arena was packed with pink as the UT Rockets beat archrival Bowling Green before 4,757 fans on Feb. 2 at the 13th annual Rockets for the Cure game. Eleanor N.

More than $16,000 was raised at the event for Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio and the Cancer Center.

First gene transfer study ever established in Toledo is now open

The first clinical gene transfer study ever established in Toledo involving cancer patients was opened at the University of Toledo after recent national IBC review. A novel DNA based approach to maximize anti-cancer response in advanced melanoma patients who failed standard treatment is now open for accrual.
