Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center is dedicated to providing exceptional care and support to individuals with cancer. More than 400 cancer specialists, nurses and technicians work together to best meet your unique needs. Our cancer program is top-ranked in Ohio and No. 5 in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report.
A Team Approach
Our lymphoma doctors, nurses and specialists meet weekly to discuss each patient’s plan and progress, and make decisions, such as whether to recommend stem cell transplantation. This means everyone treated at Cleveland Clinic receives the input of the entire lymphoma team.
We will take into consideration your goals and your desire for quality of life as well of length of life. You can be assured you will receive the most advanced, most patient-friendly treatment possible.
The prognosis for many patients with lymphoma is very good. Today, most people who develop Hodgkin lymphoma, and many who develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma, have excellent outcomes. While you have many options for lymphoma treatment, you should consider the experience of the program when selecting where to seek care.
Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center lymphoma specialists explore all options, including the latest lymphoma clinical trials, and tailor the most appropriate plan for each patient – offering the greatest chance of achieving disease remission and living a long and healthy life.

Support & Services
In addition to offering state of the art diagnostic techniques and lymphoma treatment methods, our lymphoma specialists offer an array of resources that can help patients cope with the demands of cancer. Patients are encouraged to take advantage of these resources to ease the burden of managing cancer.
Facilities Second to None
If you have lymphoma and need a stem cell or bone marrow transplant, there’s a chance you will need to spend three to six weeks in the hospital. We make every effort to make our hospital feel like your home away from home, so the experience will be as comfortable as possible.
Our two dedicated 22-bed units are designed to meet the unique clinical and emotional needs of lymphoma and stem cell or bone marrow transplant patients.
Large, private rooms feature pull-out beds for family members, wireless Internet, flat screen TVs with built-in DVD players and expansive windows. The units include amenities such as computers, an exercise room, a washer and dryer, kitchen and lounge areas.
The special floor is not only more comfortable, it also is equipped to ensure the best patient care. The contained unit has the latest air handling system to minimize infection in patients whose immune systems are not functioning at their best. The system continually filters the air on the floor, removing 99.98 percent of potential pollutants.
Clinical Trials & Research
Many clinical trials of new treatments or combinations of treatments are available for patients with Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
If your Cleveland Clinic lymphoma doctor feels you might benefit from participating in a lymphoma clinical trial, the options will be discussed with you in detail.
Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center is committed to working with you to provide the best care for your patients. Our team is also dedicated to the training and education of medical professionals to advance cancer care and research.
