Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion (LCRP) at St. Joseph's/Candler
NCI Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP)
Savannah, Georgia

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP) is a network of hospital cancer centers that serve as a community-based platform to support basic, clinical, and population-based research initiatives across the cancer care continuum—from prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship through end-of-life care. One of the goals of the NCCCP is to increase access to clinical trials in a community setting. Through a strategic partnership between the NCI and participating hospitals, the NCCCP is a hospital-based cancer center network designed to support cancer research, and enhance access to and increase quality of care at community hospitals so more patients benefit from the latest research.

The Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion (LCRP) was one of the first of ten health systems selected by the NCCCP in 2007 to participate in what was originally a pilot program. It has since grown to a full-fledged program with 30 locations. As a National Cancer Institute NCCCP site, clinical research is one of the top goals of the LCRP. Every month the LCRP initiates several new clinical trials and anticipates having trials to offer patients with virtually every type and stage of cancer. Scientific breakthroughs lead to positive changes in the fight against cancer, and these trials will assist the LCRP in its dedication to deliver the best level of patient care in their own community.
