// MISSION

The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute is Michigan’s largest integrated center of research, patient care, and education, dedicated to the prevention, early detection, treatment, and eventual eradication of cancer.


// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

Its message — Your Best Chance — underscores to patients that they will receive extraordinary care at the Karmanos Cancer Institute. Karmanos’ experts focus solely on cancer and treat more than 200 types of this disease. It’s the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in metropolitan Detroit and one of just 48 in the country. This prestigious designation distinguishes Karmanos from others who treat cancer, and it often means better treatment options and the availability of advanced cancer care for patients. Karmanos has one of the largest clinical trial programs in the nation, giving its patients the newest cancer-fighting drugs years before anyone else. Since joining McLaren Health Care, Karmanos is the largest cancer care and research network across Michigan, headquartered in Detroit with 14 locations statewide.
