Our History

The Tri-Cities Cancer Center began as a dream for a place within our region not only to treat cancer, but also to care for those impacted by it. United in a common goal, local hospitals, individuals, civic groups, and businesses came together to make that dream a reality. The Cancer Center, a partnership of Kadlec, Lourdes Health and Trios Health opened its doors in 1994 as a freestanding non-profit cancer treatment facility. Since then, the Tri-Cities Cancer Center has become a community resource for cancer treatment, support, education, and information. It is also a place where hope is intertwined with compassion, where dedicated professionals work alongside devoted volunteers, and services expand each year, due to the generous support of our community. It is a place where we stand together against a disease that affects us all.
