The Lima Memorial Cancer Institute

Using Advanced Technologies to Diagnose and Treat Cancer

No two people are the same. And no two cancers are the same. Which is why the board-certified oncology specialists at Lima Memorial Cancer Institute design cancer treatment plans for your specific needs. They combine cancer diagnosis, treatment and education with counseling and support from diagnosis through treatment to recovery. Your referring physician and our board-certified specialists, experienced oncology-trained nurses, radiation technologists, and other caregivers collaborate to develop your individual treatment plan.

The Lima Memorial Cancer Institute also is a leader in cancer education and prevention programs throughout the community.

Partnership with ProMedica Cancer Institute for Specialized Cancer Care

Lima Memorial Health System partners with ProMedica Cancer Institute in Toledo to provide highly specialized care for certain types of cancers at different stages while maintaining the treatment plan developed by your Lima Memorial Cancer Institute team.

The partnership between the two cancer treatment systems ensures patients get access to top cancer specialists, and then return to Lima Memorial for treatment, ongoing support and recovery here at home.

Advanced Technologies for Advanced Cancer Treatment Options

The Lima Memorial Cancer Institute offers some of the most advanced cancer treatments and technologies in the region, such as a PET/CT scanner that can map the entire body, high-precision X-ray equipment and 3-D imaging of tumors and abnormalities. These technologies are key in early cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment.

Our access to current cancer research and our participation in clinical trials keep us at the leading edge of today’s cancer care.

Accredited with Commendation

The Lima Memorial Cancer Institute is accredited with Commendation by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. Only one in four cancer programs in the U.S. earned accreditation, and less than half of those are recognized with the commendation.

Our oncology nurses have all completed the Oncology Nursing Society’s cancer courses in chemotherapy administration.

Care Continuum Center of Excellence for Lung Cancer

Lima Memorial Health System received designation as a Care Continuum Center of Excellence by the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer (GO2 Foundation). The designation recognizes commitment to improving outcomes for those diagnosed with lung cancer by providing patient-focused and coordinated multidisciplinary care. GO2 Foundation has formed the Care Continuum Centers of Excellence program to enable patient access to standard of care lung cancer screening, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship in their local community.

The Care Continuum Centers of Excellence (CCCOE) program recognizes community hospitals that meet rigorous qualifying criteria that demonstrate collaborative leadership across the lung cancer care continuum. Meeting the CCCOE criteria puts member hospitals on par with leading academic and research institutions and provides patients with access to the latest innovations not typically found in community hospitals. The CCCOE approach results in patients receiving compassionate and timely care, as well as treatment options that improve survivorship.
