We are the Netherlands Cancer Institute
The Netherlands Cancer Institute is the primary institute for cancer research and care. Since its foundation in 1913, the Netherlands Cancer Institute has combined care for cancer patients with groundbreaking research. We want the best care for every patient. Because cancer could happen to anyone.
We are committed to the delivery of care with personal attention and warm and professional dedication and sincerity. We will make sure that our treatment best fits our patients and their needs, wishes, and preferences and will find a personalized treatment together with our patients.
We strive to attain the best possible results in our patient care as well as our research. We offer the best possible treatment results for the best possible quality of life according to the latest developments and insights. Our researchers work hard every day to better understand the way cancer develops, and how we can best cure it.
We deliver groundbreaking care and research. This means that we can think outside of the box if this is in our patient's benefit. We continuously strive to improve and innovate. We think ahead and seek out opportunities.
Delivering the best care and research means working together. We look for solutions, possibilities, and innovation. It is important to us to find a suitable treatment plan, or combination of treatments at our hospital, together with our patients.
