About the Providence Cancer Center

The Providence Cancer Center in Anchorage is the most comprehensive treatment facility in Alaska, offering services that allow patients to get high-quality care while staying closer to home.

Mesothelioma patients in Alaska are receiving the latest multidisciplinary care that they once could find only by traveling out of state to a major specialty center.

The Providence Cancer Center, which is within the Providence Alaska Medical Center, now includes the Lee Sheffield Infusion Center for chemotherapy treatments, the CyberKnife Center with the latest radiation technology, and a thoracic surgical team that specializes in personalized care.

“There clearly was a point in time when it was the right thing to do for a patient to go to the Lower 48 for their cancer care. There was an advantage in doing that,” said Dr. James Blom, radiation oncologist at the Providence Cancer Center. “But that’s just not the case anymore.”

The Cancer Center, which opened in 2007, is part of Providence Health & Services Alaska, a nonprofit network of care centers, hospitals, clinics, physicians, and affiliated services started by the Sisters of Providence almost 160 years ago.

It includes services in Anchorage, Eagle Creek, Kodiak Island, Mat-Su, Seward and Valdez.

“Everyone who comes to us is concerned about how they are going to do. Our job as oncologists is to give every person the best chance,” Blom said. “We are blessed with a tremendous cancer center here, on the surgical side, the medical oncology side and on the radiation oncology side.”

Currently, there are no mesothelioma specialists at this hospital.
