In this section, we list an overview of North Carolina hospitals and cancer centers along with the services each offers to breast cancer patients. Unless otherwise noted, this information was verified with each of the hospitals and cancer centers. However, any portion of this information could change without our knowledge. To find a contact person at each facility that is familiar with breast cancer services, call the facility or the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service at 800.4.CANCER.
The listings for hospitals and cancer centers are arranged according to county location. We include codes that represent the breast cancer-related services provided. If you have more specific questions about the services available at a particular facility, call the hospital at the number listed.
The National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Centers Program includes more than 50 NCI-designated cancer centers across the country. North Carolina is fortunate to have three: Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center (Durham), UNC’s Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center (Chapel Hill) and Wake Forest University Comprehensive Cancer Center (Winston-Salem). These centers are some of the most comprehensive treatment and research centers in the country.
Note: Information provided, was carefully considered and verified by representatives from each facility. Every effort has been made to present accurate information. However, please call to verify services.
Some hospitals in North Carolina are not listed because they do not provide breast cancer services, they were planning to close soon, or they did not respond to our survey requesting updated information.
