Cancer Centers of Excellence 2012 Annual Report

Southeast Michigan’s Leading Provider of Health Care

St. John Providence Health System is Southeast Michigan’s most comprehensive healthcare provider with five hospitals and more than 125 medical facilities. As the leading faith-based health care system in Michigan, St. John Providence is part of Ascension Health, the largest not-for-profit health care system in the United States. St. John Providence has over 18,000 associates with experts in over 50 specialties.

Dedicated to offering comprehensive cancer care, the St. John Providence Cancer Center of Excellence provides, compassionate patient focused cancer prevention, screening, detection, treatment and support. At St. John Providence Health System all of our Cancer Programs are accredited thru the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC). The CoC is dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients through standard-setting, prevention, research, education, and the monitoring of comprehensive quality care.

The St. John Providence Health System’s (SJPHS) Community Health Assessment identified lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancer as the disease sites most frequently diagnosed in SJPHS geographical area. The areas assessed were Metropolitan Detroit, Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, and Livingston Counties. The SEER data for SJPHS also demonstrated an increase in Head and Neck cancers diagnosed over the past two years. The community outreach plan was to increase cancer awareness and help the community identify risk factors.

According to the National Cancer Institute Prevention and screening represent the twin pillars of our pre-emptive defenses against cancer. Cancer prevention includes efforts to detect and treat precancerous conditions or cancers at their earliest, most treatable stages, and the prevention of new, or second primary cancers in survivors.
