The Guthrie Cancer Center diagnoses and treats all types of cancer, including advanced stage diseases. We can help even if you do not have a definitive diagnosis. We can also offer consultation if you have been diagnosed with an aggressive, rare or difficult to treat cancer or if you have been told that surgery is not an option.
Our comprehensive team works with patients through all aspects of living with cancer, from diagnosis and treatment, to navigating the health care system, through emotional support and help figuring out finances, then stay with you into survivorship.
Guthrie has two comprehensive Cancer Centers for diagnosis, treatment and care:
Guthrie Cancer Center – Sayre
Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital
One Guthrie Square

After an initial appointment at the Corning or Sayre Cancer Centers, patients can also receive infusion treatments at the Guthrie clinic in Wellsboro, Pa.
You can be seen by our team, including fellowship-trained, board-certified specialists, at one of the Guthrie Cancer Centers without a cancer diagnosis or if previous medical tests have not determined the type or stage of your cancer. Diagnostic testing results can often be available within 24 hours.
Each individual’s cancer journey is unique and we tailor treatment plans to the patient. Programs are generally comprised of one or a combination of treatments that include: chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy, radiation therapy, surgery. We also use a multidisciplinary approach to care bringing in experts from other areas to address patients’ specific needs.
We offer access to advanced technologies and treatment options as well as clinical trials.
