The following list of cancer treatment centers includes hospitals and research facilities with experience in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer, including mesothelioma. Entries on the list with an asterisk are designated as Comprehensive Cancer Centers by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Many of these facilities also offer clinical trials for various types of cancer.


While all the treatment centers on this list treat mesothelioma patients, they differ in their levels of experience, case volumes, approach and treatment options, so it is important to ask the same questions when contacting them as you would when choosing an individual physician.


The list does not include VA medical facilities – if you are a Veteran and qualify for VA services, you should check with your nearest VA hospital to see if they have experience treating mesothelioma. The list also does not include institutions that are primarily engaged in research rather than treatment, though some of these offer clinical trials.
