Huntsman Cancer Hospital (University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics)
The Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) began over a decade ago when Jon M. Huntsman (founder and chairman of a multinational chemical manufacturing and marketing business, and father of Jon M. Huntsman, JR., politician and diplomat) was diagnosed with cancer. Although Mr. Huntsman’s cancer was successfully treated at various facilities across the United States, he felt the care he received was impersonal and cold – not conducive to total healing. As he journeyed through his own recovery, Mr. Huntsman and his wife, Karen, committed themselves to changing cancer care for others. A generous pledge from the couple in 1995 launched the construction of a state-of-the-art cancer center in Salt Lake City. Today, the Huntsman Cancer Institute, named after its primary benefactor, is world renowned and serves thousands of cancer patients each year. HCI’s Breast Cancer Program is tailored specifically for women needing screening, diagnosis, and treatment for breast cancer with a goal to provide every patient with the latest scientific knowledge and a care plan based on each individual’s needs and preferences. The National Breast Cancer Foundation has partnered with the Breast Cancer Program to provide critical breast care services for Utah’s underserved population. Screening and diagnostic mammograms are available at clinics in Salt Lake City, Midvale, and Park City.
"A valuable service has been provided for people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to have a screening exam. On at least 2 occasions, this service resulted in life-saving treatment for the underserved."
