About the Partnership

In 2012, Methodist Healthcare, The West Clinic and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center joined forces to create West Cancer Center. This innovative partnership brings together pioneering leaders in research to enhance the study and treatment of cancer in the Mid-South.

We are both scientists and care providers. Our experts come from a variety of medical and scientific disciplines and work together on an integrated experience for patients—from screening and diagnosis to treatment and survival.

  • Expanded clinical trials to give our patients the newest treatments and advanced care options
  • Added genetic testing to support customized treatments
  • Recruited new cancer experts to Memphis
