Affiliation with Cadence Health in Illinois to Help Provide Advanced Care for Patients

Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute is entering an adult medical oncology affiliation with Cadence Health in Winfield, Ill., the newly named health system created through the merger of Central DuPage Hospital and Delnor Hospital.

This is Cleveland Clinic’s first national affiliation in adult medical oncology. U.S.News & World Report has ranked Cleveland Clinic among the top 10 cancer centers nationally for two straight years.

“Our affiliation with Cadence Health will help enhance patient care by providing the latest treatments available, along with greater access to clinical trials,” said Brian J. Bolwell, MD, chairman of Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Institute. “We will work together to achieve the highest standards of care and the best outcomes for our patients.”

The affiliation is similar to Cleveland Clinic’s heart surgery affiliation established in 2010 with Central DuPage Hospital – one of eight heart surgery affiliations Cleveland Clinic has entered nationally.
