What you need to know

Two of the strongest institutions in our community have come together to treat cancer. Legacy Health and the Oregon Health & Science University give you the benefits of their combined resources through the OHSU Knight–Legacy Health Cancer Collaborative. 

By working together, you benefit from the strength of both leaders in cancer care — convenient locations, the latest treatment and diagnostic options and more access to services. Our collaboration gives you:

  • Care close to home with options throughout the greater Portland and Southwest Washington area, including convenient clinics where medications that can’t be taken orally are given by infusion.
  • Adult cancer treatment by doctors at Legacy and OHSU working together to coordinate your care.
  • Access to more clinical trial options available through both cancer institutes.
  • Advanced care with access to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute’s specialized diagnostic tests and Legacy’s specialized pathology and research.

You are not alone. Legacy offers support throughout your cancer journey, as well as care for your emotional, social and spiritual needs.
