Individuals from Fort Myers and Naples, Florida, have access to the latest advances in cancer treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. At Moffitt, we devote each day to working toward a singular mission – to contribute to the prevention and eventual cure of all types of cancer. Moffitt was founded by a cancer survivor who was troubled by the fact that his family members and friends had to travel outside the state of Florida to receive sophisticated cancer treatment. H. Lee Moffitt resolved to do something about it. Since first opening our doors in 1986, Moffitt has earned a national reputation for excellence.
Founded on the concept of teamwork, Moffitt brings together diverse talents, specialties and perspectives to continually generate new ideas. Our patients are at the very center of everything we do, and our various oncology programs are built specifically around their needs. Among other things, this means our patients can benefit from:
- Highly focused oncology programs defined by cancer site, such as breast, lung or skin
- A devoted, multispecialty team made up of medical professionals that not only represent a wide variety of disciplines, but also specialize in a particular cancer site
- Individualized treatment and supportive care services guided by multiple expert opinions
- Convenient and affordable accommodations offered by our local hotel partners (this may be of particular interest to patients who come to Moffitt from Fort Myers or Naples, FL)
In recognition of our far-reaching scientific research, clinical trials, cancer prevention programs and educational initiatives, the National Cancer Institute has bestowed on Moffitt the highest honor that can be given to a cancer center – recognition as an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. We firmly believe that the key to our success is collaboration, and we continue to tie our scientific endeavors to the issues being faced by cancer patients and their oncologists every single day.
