UofL Health - Brown Cancer Center opened in 1981 to help relieve the state's suffering caused by cancer. More than 10,000 people a year die from cancer in Kentucky, where the disease has the highest mortality rate in the nation. Experts say the biggest issue is lung cancer, which strikes Kentuckians at a rate 50% higher than the national average. Death rates for breast, colorectal and cervical cancers in Kentucky also rank in the top 10 nationally, but we are working to change that and have a goal of reducing the cancer death rate by 30% over the next five years.
Our downtown location is a comprehensive academic cancer center. We offer:
- Breast Care Center for breast cancer screening and diagnostics
