NCI Designation

The Only NCI-Designated Cancer Center in North Texas

NCI designation is the gold standard for cancer programs. It’s bestowed upon the nation’s top cancer centers in recognition of innovative research and excellence in patient care. Simply put, it places the Simmons Cancer Center among the most elite centers in the country and makes us the only NCI-designated Cancer Center in North Texas.

What does it mean to be an NCI-designated Cancer Center? In the fight against cancer, it means everything."

James K.V. Willson, M.D.
Director

Simmons Cancer Center

It reflects our promise – and ability – to deliver the best cancer care available today and to discover new treatments that will lead to the best cancer care of tomorrow.

NCI-designated Cancer Centers are sought by cancer patients for the latest advances in treatment, and by physicians/scientists dedicated to solving the mysteries of cancer.

“The future of cancer care is the ability to make discoveries that can quickly impact patient care and cancer prevention," Dr. Willson said. "We have a discovery engine of amazing depth that exists in very few places.”
