Winning the fight against cancer one patient at a time
The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute (FHCI) is not only the largest cancer center in Central Florida, but one of the most highly respected centers in the nation. Our cancer care team is at the very forefront of treating blood-related cancer, using the latest in bone marrow and stem cell transplant advances to treat your cancer. Not only do we push the boundaries of modern medicine to successfully treat the cancer, but we treat you as well, supporting you physically, emotionally and spiritually every step of the way. We know that treating cancer is not enough. We need to treat the whole person, delivering compassionate, professional care every step of the way for you and your family. This patient-centric care philosophy is what sets us apart from other cancer centers in the U.S.
FHCI utilizes two distinct pathways in fighting blood-related cancers: allogeneic and autologous transplants. Allogeneic transplants use bone marrow or stem cells donated from genetically matched members of your family, typically your brother or sister or a donor located through national registries. Autologous transplants use stem cells harvested from you while you are in remission. These are frozen and utilized at a later time to treat your cancer with your own cells.

Florida Hospital offers a cancer rehabilitation/lymphedema program that aims to decrease both physical and mental distress. Rehabilitation is available for patients diagnosed with cancer even before a surgery is performed.
