Huntsman Cancer Institute Affiliation
Cancer Care in Wyoming & Utah
The Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) is a cancer research and treatment
facility at the University of Utah Health. Through scientific study and
comprehensive research endeavors, they have made great strides in cancer
treatments. Their work has partnered them with some of the world’s
leading cancer centers, and St. John’s Medical Center is proud to
be one of their affiliates.
As partners, our two facilities collaborate so that residents of Jackson
Hole and the surrounding areas have access to a wide array of cancer specialists
from one of the country’s top cancer institutes.
What This Means for Teton County Patients with Cancer
Having led some of the nation’s most influential cancer studies,
the HCI oncologists have a great deal of knowledge and experience to offer
cancer care professionals. Our staff is privileged to participate in educational
courses at the Institute and train in some of the most effective cancer
treatments normally only found at large cancer centers. This means our
patients have access to large hospital resources in our small, rural Wyoming town.
- The HCI and St. John’s affiliation provides us with access to:
- New developments in cancer research
- Specialized cancer treatments
- Oncologists specializing in specific cancers
- HCI’s expansive oncologic library
- Online resources for cancer support
One of the biggest benefits of this affiliation is that individuals diagnosed
with cancer in will not need to travel far for expert cancer services.
Through this partnership, our hospital is able to offer a wealth of resources
close to home.
In the rare occasions when our hospital does not have the equipment you
need, our patients already have a connection to a hospital one state over
where doctors can easily access their medical records and contact their
primary care provider.
