HealthPartners Cancer Care

A cancer diagnosis can stop you in your tracks. When you hear the news, telling you not to worry would be a lot to ask. Instead, we’ll help you find answers.

At HealthPartners Cancer Care, you can meet with an oncologist within 48 hours. We’ll talk with you about how you’re feeling and discuss your personalized treatment plan.

Our combined team of oncologists, genetic counselors, surgeons, nurses and many others support you in mind and body. And with award-winning cancer care across Minnesota and western Wisconsin, the care you need is always close by.

We approach cancer treatment by understanding the physical and mental impact it has. Our researchers develop advanced clinical trials to continually improve the ways we diagnose and treat cancer. We lead the way in cancer innovations, and our research is shared internationally. No matter what you’re facing, we’ll be by your side with the latest treatments and unwavering support.

Every day, researchers across the world – including our team of experts at the HealthPartners Institute Cancer Research Center – are developing more effective treatments for all types of cancer.

As part of our work, we conduct leading-edge research and participate in clinical trials designed to improve the ways we diagnose and treat cancer, as well as manage its side effects. We share the results of our findings internationally to enhance the quality of patient care everywhere.

Our doctors are involved in a number of studies, including early phase, phase 1, 2 and 3 clinical trials, as well as other cancer-related projects that are helping improve outcomes and experiences. This means our patients have access to the latest research and clinical trials close to home. Learn more about our participation in current trials and other important research.

Making clinical trials more equitable

It’s important that our work evenly supports the diverse communities we serve. We recently joined a project led by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) for this purpose. We are one of 75 research sites invited to participate in an implicit bias training aimed at reducing barriers to clinical research opportunities. We will also pilot a self-assessment tool from ASCO and ACCC intended to improve policies, procedures and programs that may inadvertently hinder participation in trials.
