CHI Memorial Earns Center of Excellence Designation for Melanoma Treatment

CHI Memorial, Chattanooga, TN,  has received the Melanoma Hope Network Center of Excellence designation, one of only 17 centers in the country, and the only one in Tennessee.  This designation recognizes melanoma treatment centers and physicians that offer exceptional care, knowledge and compassion to patients diagnosed with advanced melanoma.

The foundation of the melanoma program at CHI Memorial is evidence-based guidelines and interventions from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN) – all designed to prevent, treat, and cure melanoma and other skin cancers.

American Cancer Society statistics show more than 90,000 cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in 2018, and nearly 9,000 people will die from the disease. Skin cancer is by far the most common of all cancers, and the rates of melanoma have been on the rise in the last 30 years. If caught early, the chances of survival are excellent.
