The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center has launched the University of Maryland (UM) Cancer Network, connecting three UM community cancer centers — UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center’s Tate Cancer Center, UM St. Joseph Medical Center’s The Cancer Institute and UM Upper Chesapeake Health’s Patricia D. and M. Scot Kaufman Cancer Center — with the nationally-recognized academic cancer center. The launch of the UM Cancer Network aligns and reinforces the Greenebaum Cancer Center’s separate affiliations with each of the three community hospitals, allowing for maximum reach and impact on the health of Maryland cancer patients.
The University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center’s Cancer Institute has earned a three-year accreditation with commendation from the American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer (CoC).
