Cancer Care and COVID-19
Safety is our top priority
We want to assure you that the we are here for you. While the coronavirus has changed much of our daily lives, one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing you with the best, safest care possible.
At the Lifespan Cancer Institute, your safety is our top priority. As experts in cancer, we also know completing a treatment plan is associated with the best outcomes for patients. That is why we worked closely with our infection prevention and infectious diseases teams to be able to provide the care you need in a safe environment.
About the Lifespan Cancer Institute
The Lifespan Cancer Institute at Rhode Island, The Miriam, Newport and Hasbro Children's hospitals provides the most current cancer diagnosis and treatment options. Our world-renowned physicians and specialists form multidisciplinary teams, both in the hospitals and at the Lifespan Ambulatory Care Center in East Greenwich.

Additional experts–including nurses, nurse navigators, pharmacists, social workers, and nutritionists–work with patients and their families to ensure complete care from diagnosis through recovery.
An Emerging Approach for Treatment
After decades of research in cancer treatment, physicians and researchers are touting the benefits of a new defense against cancer. Precision medicine is a personalized and targeted approach for disease treatment and prevention. It takes into account the individual variability in genes, environment and lifestyle for each patient.
Two notable areas of precision medicine that we have integrated into our practice are immunotherapy and molecularly targeted treatment. The Lifespan Cancer Institute currently has a number of investigational studies to further explore these treatments. Our efforts focus on accelerating the progress of research by developing the right strategies and giving our patients the best possible outcomes through the latest treatments.
