Personalized Cancer Treatment
Patients are the center of Kellogg Cancer Center’s personalized treatment experience.
Just as no two patients are alike, neither are their options for cancer care—there is no “cookie cutter” approach. We create cancer treatment plans to best benefit each individual patient. From personal health histories to genetic considerations to individual preferences, treatment at the Kellogg Cancer Center is as individual as our patients.
Kellogg Cancer Center remains at the leading edge of cancer treatment through the application of immunotherapy. Our team is able to further tailor patient care for many types of cancer by applying personalized medicine techniques to improve diagnosis, prevention and treatment.
Patient survival rates at Kellogg Cancer Center continue to compare favorably with national benchmarks. Our patients’ positive outcomes are the most important measure of our success.
Patient-Centered Cancer Care
Kellogg Cancer Center’s collaborative approach to cancer care goes beyond medical treatment and provides a wide array of support services to patients and their families.
NorthShore’s Integrative Medicine Program provides complementary therapies to help patients improve well-being, reduce stress and optimize cancer treatments. Our Psychosocial Program provides services to help patients manage emotional and practical needs. When patients are finished with their cancer treatment, our Living in the Future (LIFE) Cancer Survivorship Program helps them adapt and focus on their future health and well-being.
Additionally, the Kellogg Cancer Resource Center is open to patients and families seeking to educate themselves about various aspects of cancer diagnoses and treatment.

Multidisciplinary Oncology Team
Kellogg Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary approach provides optimal cancer treatments for each of our patients. To provide the best care possible, we bring together oncology specialists, each with expertise in specific cancers, as well as other clinical staff involved in your treatment, and put their collective knowledge, skills and experience to work for you.
NorthShore is certified by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) as a premier medical provider for practicing the highest standards for quality cancer care. The Commission on Cancer has continuously accredited NorthShore as an Academic Comprehensive Cancer Program since 1981.
Kellogg has also been designated by Blue Cross Blue Shield as a Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers. The Blue Distinction program identifies hospitals with proven expertise in delivering specialty care. These accomplishments validate the team’s approach and underscore the quality, compassionate cancer care patients receive.
Innovative Cancer Research
Research initiatives at NorthShore support a wide range of projects designed to improve cancer prevention, detection and treatment. Our patients benefit from a focus on translational research—bringing the latest findings from the laboratory to our clinical sites daily.
NorthShore has a broad range of clinical trials designed to offer our patients earlier access to potentially beneficial new cancer treatments. We continue to expand these clinical trial offerings, bringing more options—and more hope—to our patients and their families.
Our academic affiliation with the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and growing collaboration with the Mayo Clinic further strengthen our patient care and research initiatives, including access to a broad array of clinical trials and treatments.
