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.

In 2012, the Cancer Center received a three-year approval with commendation for its achievements in cancer treatment, research and supportive care service efforts by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC). The Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center is the first freestanding CoC-Approved Cancer Program in the U.S. The program also provides cancer patients with educational materials about cancer and its treatment and information about community resources to help patients and their family members.
