Karmanos Gives You Your Best Chance Forward.

Cancer. It’s the word that changes everything, for patients and those who love them. A diagnosis doesn’t have to be the end of your story; it can be the beginning of a new chapter. And the direction it takes is a responsibility we share, together.

Leading the fight against cancer

At the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, we are exclusively focused on providing our patients with every resource to give them their best chance at a favorable outcome. We are doing things to fight cancer that didn’t exist as far back as yesterday. While every hospital will do all that they can, we can do things other hospitals just can’t. From groundbreaking research to the most up-to-date therapies and individualized treatment plans, Karmanos is truly leading the fight against cancer.

A Specialized Team of Experts

We understand that cancer is a complex disease that demands complex care. We provide each patient with a dynamic, carefully constructed treatment plan focused on their specific cancer and their unique needs.

A plan designed with respect, compassion and responsiveness

Karmanos offers 15 multidisciplinary teams, each designed and staffed specifically to ensure that patients and their families get their cancer diagnosis and treatment right the first time. Each team consists of cancer specialists who have devoted their careers to fighting the very cancer with which patients are confronted. Such cancers include:

Meet the Karmanos Experts

Our cancer doctors, whether they’re based in Detroit or any of our locations throughout the communities we serve, have met rigorous criteria to become certified as Karmanos providers. This assures patients and their families that they will receive the very best care from Karmanos treatment facilities.

It’s our calling to give you your best chance forward.

The Karmanos Advantage.

Karmanos Cancer Institute is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in metro Detroit. That means patients can access treatments exclusive to Karmanos, including innovative care, cancer prevention programs and multidisciplinary teams of cancer specialists — an unmatched comprehensive approach.

Care Beyond the Medicine

To support medical treatments, integrative therapies are used to treat the whole patient — mind, body and soul. Karmanos offers a wide variety of educational, spiritual, palliative care, and nutrition resources to provide the extra care and support patients and their families need to have a successful journey through cancer. In addition, every journey begins with the assignment of an oncology patient navigator. These navigators help patients through every step of their cancer care. They can be a single point of contact between the patient and the medical team.

Your Best Chance to Beat Cancer

Karmanos Cancer Institute is the only hospital in Michigan focused solely on cancer. That means we’re completely devoted to offering every patient the best treatment options for a successful outcome.
