Delegate Representative:

Mr. John J. Montville


This is the Lourdes Regional Cancer Center, the area's premier facility dedicated to spiritually based, comprehensive cancer care. We started by studying, examining, and researching the possibilities. And only when we were satisfied we could bring our community outstanding cancer care, did we do so. That was 1957.

Nearly sixty years later, the Lourdes Regional Cancer Center continues that mission.

Since 1971, the Lourdes Regional Cancer Center has been accredited as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program. We are a large and sophisticated community cancer program for a community of our size. Here within the region's premier facility dedicated to the fight against cancer we've gathered the area's top physicians and oncologists. We've assembled select teams of cancer nurses and specialists and we've brought home to the Southern Tier some of the newest weapons to fight cancer.

Lourdes is now a certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program of MD Anderson Cancer Center. MD Anderson, based in Houston, is a global leader in cancer care. The affiliation with the network means we have access to the pioneering evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and best practices developed by the experts at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Lourdes is raising the standard of cancer care in our community. More information about MD Anderson is available at

Pastoral care, nutrition services, and rehabilitation services are also available for both outpatients and inpatients. Lourdes Regional Cancer Center also maintains a link with the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) database. This database provides the latest information on research advances and new treatments, as well as emerging topics on the influence of genetics, environmental factors and lifestyle factors in the development of cancer.

The result is a Center of Excellence that remains unmatched for a community of our size. And a history we are proud of.
