AdvocateAurora Southern WI INCP

Annual Case Load

The Aurora facilities of Kenosha, Burlington and Lakeland provide a warm, supportive atmosphere featuring a holistic, multi-specialty team approach to care. Each of our facilities have received the Commission on Cancer’s coveted Outstanding Achievement Award. Additionally, the Burlington and Kenosha sites are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. We coordinate the best treatment options using national guidelines. Our cancer programs offer all aspects of the continuum of care- from wellness and prevention through diagnosis and treatment, including survivorship. We emphasize consistent quality outcomes and coordinated patient-centered care. Our cancer experts form an integrated team that collaborates throughout the entire Aurora system so that patients remain close to home for most of their treatment, but have access to Aurora’s advanced technology when necessary. Additionally, patients can participate in more than 70 active cancer clinical trials.
