The MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute at Long Beach Medical Center is committed to helping patients overcome the challenges of cancer in the state-of-the-art Todd Cancer Pavilion. We offer an inspirational environment where patients, families and an expert care team work together to develop individualized treatment plans.
We’re dedicated to the early diagnosis, research, treatment and education of patients with cancer or serious blood disorders. At the forefront of cancer management are the divisions of breast, gynecologic, gastrointestinal and thoracic. Treatments include radiation therapy, genetic counseling, minimally invasive surgery including robotic-assisted surgery, and systemic therapies that can include chemotherapy, immunotherapy and biologics.
Through multi-disciplinary treatment planning conferences, our specialists review new or difficult cases and develop treatment plans suited to the specific needs of each patient. Personalized care developed for the unique needs of each patient is a clinical reality at the MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute.
