Kadlec Tri-Cities Cancer Center
It’s an exciting time for cancer care in our region. Together, the Tri-Cities Cancer Center (TCCC) and Kadlec are charting a path forward to ensure continuity and growth of well-integrated cancer care services for our region.

It’s our privilege to provide outstanding cancer care and support to our region and we look forward to sharing additional details as necessary.

Though not a replacement for the colonoscopy, the Kadlec Tri-Cities Cancer Center offers a free FDA-cleared test called a FIT, which stands for Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT). The test checks for hidden blood in your stool. The test is non-invasive and can be completed in the privacy of your home in as little as 5 minutes. If you are between the ages of 45-75 and would like to see if a FIT makes sense for you, please call 509-737-3422 for more information.

If you are an uninsured woman, please ask for a referral from your primary care physician.
Men, if you are between the ages of 50-69 and are at average risk, have a conversation with your primary care physician to determine if screening for prostate cancer is appropriate for you.

A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and impact your life in a variety of ways. At the Tri-Cities Cancer Center, we understand that cancer care is more than treating a disease. So in addition to state-of-the-art technology, we also provide comprehensive support services to help you cope, recover, and move forward.

Overcoming cancer and achieving survivorship is a milestone accomplishment. But when treatment is over many patients ask, “what’s next?” Our survivorship clinic provides survivorship care to patients of the Kadlec Tri-Cities Cancer Center, as well as provide support to all three local hospital systems and their oncology patients.
In our Survivorship Clinic, we work with patients to:
- Manage and identify side effects of treatment
- Discuss potential long-term complications from treatment
- Educate patients on how to avoid, as well as detect, a cancer recurrence
- Encourage the development of healthy habits for overall health and well-being
In short, our Survivorship Clinic assists patients in achieving the best possible quality, and length, of life after treatment.
The Survivorship Clinic provides the bridge between a patient’s oncology team and their primary care provider. This is a critical element of survivorship. We work closely with each patient, and their providers, to be sure everyone has a good understanding of the patient’s unique needs.
Life after cancer just got even better. Ask your provider to refer you to the Survivorship Clinic at the Kadlec Tri-Cities Cancer Center.
For additional information please call 509-737-3418.
