About CCCN

Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) is the award-winning multidisciplinary oncology group comprising medical oncology, hematology, radiation oncology, breast surgery and pulmonary medicine, with 14 treatment centers and offices throughout Southern Nevada. The practice’s specialized physician and nursing staff offers sophisticated diagnostic tools, the latest advances in cancer treatment, a full range of innovative, exclusive services and research-based care in a supportive and caring environment.

CCCN has provided oncology services to Southern Nevada residents and visitors for more than 35 years. CCCN’s group practice formed in 2000 when Southwest Cancer Clinic and Nevada Radiation Oncology Centers united to maximize the delivery of cancer fighting treatments and therapies. In 2002, these two groups, which had been helping patients with cancer since 1974, united under one name — Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada.

In order to provide patients the most progressive and effective cancer treatments, CCCN expanded its clinical research program by partnering with some of the world’s most recognizable research and cancer-fighting organizations. In 1995, CCCN physicians became part of The US Oncology Network, one of the nation’s largest networks of community-based oncology physicians dedicated to advancing cancer care in America.

Today, CCCN participates in more than 170 Phase I, Phase II and Phase III clinical research studies each year, and has helped develop more than 60 FDA approved cancer therapies including the recent approvals for Provenge, Xofigo and Hercepin. CCCN’s affiliations with these prominent oncology-specialized organizations keep the practice at the forefront of treatment and diagnostic advancements.

Radiation Oncology

Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) offers a variety of cancer treatment options including radiation oncology.

Radiation therapy, or radiation oncology, is quicker, safer and more precise than ever before. Radiation oncologists at CCCN use the most advanced treatment planning systems and state-of-the-art radiation technology to deliver internal and external radiation that helps prevent cancerous cells from growing or dividing, and potentially eliminates them.

CCCN’s Radiation Oncology Division earned a three-year term of accreditation from the American College of Radiology, making it the only oncology practice in Southern Nevada to receive the accreditation for five consecutive three-year terms. The accreditation ensures you receive the highest level of quality care available. Accreditation is awarded based upon a peer-reviewed evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of a practice’s personnel, adequacy of equipment, quality control records, quality assessment and outcomes, continuing education records, and peer review.
