For Patients

Cancer Research Trials

The Sarah Cannon Research Institute is determined to make a difference in our patients' lives. We have more than 300 clinical trials in active enrollment and follow-up throughout our national network of physicians. In this way, patients are able to receive innovative new treatments in their local communities.

  • The Sarah Cannon Cancer Centers located at HCA affiliated facilities throughout Tennessee and south central Kentucky, range from a tertiary care hospital to community hospitals and local clinics. All of these sites offer medical oncology to the community, with referral to an appropriate Sarah Cannon Cancer Center site for radiation therapy, surgery, or other diagnostic or treatment modalities.

We also offer resources that help us better treat our patients, our friends and our families and tools that provide information, explain side effects, recommend tips on communicating and more.
