Masonic Cancer Center Designated as Comprehensive Cancer Center

Friday, September 22, 2023

The Masonic Cancer Center (MCC) has retained its National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest federal rating a cancer center can achieve. The MCC is one of only two comprehensive cancer centers in Minnesota and 53 in the nation. The rigorous and highly competitive NCI designation process is undertaken every five years. This is the sixth consecutive time MCC has received the designation, this time with its highest score to date. The NCI designation will likely mean that the MCC will continue to receive support for its groundbreaking cancer research. Read more about that work on the Masonic Cancer Center website. The Masonic Cancer Center is a Consortium member center.
