About the West Michigan Cancer Center:
In 1994, Borgess Health Alliance and Bronson Healthcare Group opened the doors of West Michigan Cancer Center & Institute for Blood Disorders (WMCC) to the residents of Kalamazoo and surrounding counties. This fulfilled the hospitals’ joint vision to provide a state-of-the-art treatment facility for the community. The new center immediately made a lasting and positive difference in the health and lives of area residents. The collaboration ensured that the best treatment capabilities, which were also the most expensive, could be acquired through cost sharing. The community is the primary beneficiary, with a center that rivals the most advanced academic centers anywhere.
Today, WMCC sees approximately 4,000 new patients annually. Through continuing investments in technology and clinical excellence, patients are experiencing benefits of earlier detection and more effective treatment procedures. As a result, we are able to treat and beat more cancers and hematologic diseases, and ensure a better quality of life for survivors.
WMCC employs more than 250 people who together have created a totally unique clinical environment to ensure the most effective fight against the disease. Our doctors, nurses and staff inspire hope and confidence through their attitudes and outlooks. Happily, it isn’t just wishful thinking. We are winning against more types of cancers today than at any other time in history.
In the spring of 2018, the partner organizations Bronson Healthcare and Borgess Health announced plans to transition medical oncology and infusion services to the partner hospitals. This transition project is underway and will result in a redesigned joint venture organization focused on radiation oncology, gynecologic oncology, and surgical oncology.
