NCI Cancer Center badge

In June 2023, the UF Health Cancer Center became Florida’s newest NCI-designated cancer center. Only Cancer Centers that meet the highest standards for research and development in creating innovative approaches to cancer diagnosis and treatment achieve this level of distinction. An NCI-designation gets us a step closer to realizing our vision of a future where everyone has access to individually tailored treatments and leading-edge clinical trials that reduce the burden of cancer in our community and beyond.

Our caring team of specialists provide comprehensive, individualized treatment options, access to the latest clinical trials and superior outcomes. That’s why we’re North Central Florida’s only Cancer Center of Excellence.

Cancer rehabilitation services

After going through cancer treatments, patients may find themselves unable to perform the activities they once could. Our cancer rehabilitation specialists work with patients living with cancer and cancer survivors to maintain and improve their emotional well-being and physical function.

The cancer rehabilitation specialists at UF Health perform comprehensive evaluations and rehabilitative care – from physical and occupational therapy to other supportive services.

For patients with breast and gynecological cancers, our cancer rehabilitation physicians provide pre- and post-operative screenings as well as management of upper and lower extremity lymphedema.

Many cancer patients suffer from musculoskeletal complications during their cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our specialists help provide education on lifestyle changes and exercises that can help patients improve physically during and after cancer treatment. We also provide long-term care to evaluate our patients rehabilitation needs long after the completion of their treatment.
