Welcome to MCI
There's no denying the power of the human mind. Some might even go as far to say that a single mind could have the power to overcome cancer. We don't reject this outright. But, as USA Mitchell Cancer Institute (MCI), we are scientists, researchers and physicians. And we must ask, if one mind may make a difference, what is the power of many expert minds joined to conquer cancer on all fronts -- ground-breaking research, state-of-the-art clinical treatments, as well as a strong commitment to community awareness, outreach, early detection and prevention.
A key component to our commitment to providing comprehensive cancer care is our vast research initiatives. Working in state-of-the-art facilities with the most advanced technology available, our researcher scientists work side by side with physician specialists to innovate new breakthroughs and translate these findings into enhanced diagnostic, prognostic and prevention strategies, enabling us to battle cancer on all fronts -- from the "bench to bedside."
That's why we provide the latest treatment options, and we are one of only five centers in the nation to offer the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System. That's why we provide a comfortable treatment environment, such as our state-of-the-art infusion suite. That's why our exceptional laboratory facilities have expanded to include our tissue Biobank and Drug Discovery. That's why we've filed more than 40 patents on inventions related to cancer diagnostics and/or therapy. And that's why MCI and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Comprehensive Cancer Center entered into a declaration of intent to establish a NCI-designated Cancer Canter Consortium.
This "all in one" approach is at the heart of MCI's commitment to providing the best cancer care possible. Patients at MCI have an entire team behind them every step of the way. Partnering with referring physicians throughout the Gulf Coast, our cancer researchers, physician specialists, patient navigators who provide guidance and support, and many other health care professionals all work together to offer a comprehensive package of advanced cancer treatment and prevention options that can make the difference in beating cancer.
We will continue to build upon these accomplishments to make a difference in conquering cancer in our region and beyond -- one battle at a time.
