The Delbert Day Cancer Institute at PCRMC

The nationally accredited Delbert Day Cancer Institute at PCRMC houses all cancer care services under one roof for convenience and continuity of care for patients and their families. The DDCI is housed on the main campus in Rolla and located off of the north side of the PCRMC Medical Office Building.

The DDCI includes designated areas for radiation oncology, medical oncology, laboratory and imaging services, an infusion room, physician offices and areas for a community conference center, retail space and café.  All cancer treatment and support services are centrally located in the DDCI in order to ensure the best possible patient experience and to ease the burden of having to travel multiple locations for treatment.

The Delbert Day Cancer Institute (DDCI) earns national accreditation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Because it is a CoC-accredited cancer center, DDCI takes a multidisciplinary approach to  treating  cancer as a complex group of diseases that requires consultation among surgeons, medical and  radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, and other cancer specialists.  This multidisciplinary partnership results in improved patient care. 

The Delbert Day Cancer Institute (DDCI) has been awarded a grant by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a member of the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Program (NCORP).



Regional Cancer Snapshot

One-in-two men and one-in-three women will develop cancer during their lifetime. Currently, PCRMC is only able to treat about 40% of all cancer patients in our six-county service radius. Cancer projections are dire: the cancer case volume is expected to increase in south-central Missouri well into the future. PCRMC is preparing now to accommodate the rapidly growing need of cancer services in our region.  With the creation of the Delbert Day Cancer Institute (DDCI), PCRMC anticipates being able to serve 520 additional cancer patients per year.
