Cancer & Blood Specialists of Louisville has joined UofL Health – Brown Cancer Center, combining a 40-year legacy of community-based cancer care in south Louisville with nationally recognized multidisciplinary care, advanced research and innovation. The new Brown Cancer Center location, at 1460 Bluegrass Avenue, is affiliated with UofL Health – Mary & Elizabeth Hospital. It is the cancer center’s second expansion and its third location in Louisville.
Situated just east of the Mary & Elizabeth Hospital campus, the newest Brown Cancer Center location offers CT scans, PET scans and infusion therapy. Radiation therapy is supported within the hospital. Patients will also have access to clinical trials, immunotherapy and new treatments before they are available anywhere else.
The Brown Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary teams leverage the expertise of multiple physicians and clinicians, and may also include pharmacy, nutrition, social services and more. The team meets weekly to review new cases and develop treatment plans that are customized, comprehensive and coordinated specifically for each patient.
The south Louisville location is well-positioned to make a difference in an area particularly in need of more cancer care. The neighborhoods surrounding it are among those with the most cancer deaths in Jefferson County, according to the Louisville Metro Health Equity Report (2017).
