A distinctive aspect of the Goshen Center for Cancer Care is its strong focus on research; the ability to conduct clinical trials which advance cancer treatment is rare for smaller hospitals. Approximately 40 clinical trials are in process at any given time. Each study tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer, as well as improve quality of life for cancer survivors.
