Originating out of Grant Medical Center in 1983 with only a handful of physicians, the Columbus CCOP has come a long way in just about 25 years. The focus of our organization remains the same as it did back then: to bring state-of-the-art cancer prevention and treatment programs to local physicians and the communities they serve. This means that all of our investigators and nurses are firmly committed to the concept that cancer therapy and clinical trials are mutually supportive. We believe that a clinical trial is often the best, and sometimes the only treatment option available for patients with cancer.
The Columbus CCOP fulfills the goal of the CCOP program by providing the best scientific trials, extensive educational opportunities, and a framework for multispecialty collaboration throughout central and southeastern Ohio. Continued growth has occurred over the past 5 years and our consortium now consists of 15 hospitals, and 81 physicians covering 35 counties in parts of 4 states.
We have set our goals high because we believe our patients will benefit. The experienced investigators, nurses and allied personnel backed by the committed institutions of the Columbus CCOP are ready to continue our success, working closely with the NCI as we continue the war on cancer.
