About UPMC Hillman Cancer Center

One of the world’s largest integrated cancer networks, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center translates its world-renowned reputation for innovation, research, and excellence to locations around the globe. Our locations in Lazio, Sicily, Campania, and Tuscany enable us to provide cancer care similar to what patients would find in the U.S. without travelling far from home. Throughout Italy, our patients have access to comprehensive services and some of the latest technologies and treatments available, many of which were pioneered by UPMC Hillman Cancer Center.

Our approach is inspired by the model implemented in the U.S. in which patients are supported by a multidisciplinary team of specialists who work together to determine the best course of treatment. This gives each patient the expert care needed to fight cancer and get back to living their lives to the fullest.
