Cancer Registry

The cancer registry is responsible for capturing a complete summary of diagnosis, stage, treatment and status for all cancer patients diagnosed and/or treated at Huntsville Hospital. All information gathered is submitted to the Alabama Statewide Cancer Registry databank to gain a better understanding of incidence and treatment, which will impact discovery of a cure.
