Joe and Jessie Crump Cancer Center

A Joint Program of the Kelsey Research Foundation and Kelsey-Seybold Clinic

Established in 1983, the mission of the Cancer Center, a joint program of the Kelsey Research Foundation and Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, is to improve the quality of cancer care and health outcomes of patients with cancer at Kelsey-Seybold. The Cancer Center continues to develop and maintain integrated programs in cancer education, prevention, patient care and research. These programs assure that patients and family members receive the highest quality health services available and provide clinicians with up-to-date information and research findings to prevent and treat this multifaceted disease.

Since 1986, the Crump Cancer Center has maintained an accurate registry of all cancer patients in the KSC system and affiliated hospitals. The registry reports the incidence and prevalence of cancer cases at KSC and affiliated hospitals, documents all medical care rendered for these patients, and reports these data to the Texas Department of Health State Cancer Registry and the National Cancer Data Base.
