Cancer Care Locations

Our cancer care is provided at three sites: the National Jewish Health main campus, National Jewish Health Northern Hematology-Oncology in Thornton, CO, and National Jewish Health Western Hematology-Oncology in Golden, CO.  

At the main campus, our focus is on cancers of the throat and chest. Our multidisciplinary approach is comprehensive, yet customized based on your individual needs. This allows you to see multiple specialists who work together as a team, treating several aspects of your cancer at one time.  

At our Northern and Western sites, we treat all adult cancers. We continue our coordinated care approach by working with other physicians and convenient treatment facilities in the Denver area to facilitate your care.


Cancer Tests

Because we are the leading respiratory hospital in the nation, you will have access to tests at National Jewish Health that may not be available in other places. We try not to duplicate tests that you have had prior to coming here; instead, we use the results of your previous tests in our overall evaluation. Please advise us of tests that have already been done when making your initial appointment so we can arrange to have the results sent to us.

Our team is committed to providing convenient access to quality cancer care in Denver. Together, our main campus in Denver, Colorado, our  Northern Hematology Oncology location in Thornton, Colorado, and our Western Hematology Oncology location in Golden, Colorado, provide convenient options for cancer treatment close to home.
