Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center
Established in 1970 as a small clinic for cancer patients, the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center was named for football coach Vince Lombardi, who was treated for cancer at Georgetown University Hospital. In 1974 Georgetown Lombardi became the nation’s 16th National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center, and today remains the only such designated center in the Washington, DC, area. It has since evolved into a state-of-the-art center housing more than 240,000 square feet of clinic and Innovative Steps Toward Individualized Treatment research space, and is part of both Georgetown University Medical Center and Georgetown University Hospital.

Now in its second year of operation, the Otto J. Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastrointestinal Cancers has its roots in the philanthropic gift of Jeanne W. Ruesch, whose husband Otto died of pancreatic cancer. “Mrs Ruesch was determined that her gift be used to make a meaningful difference for those with GI cancers, and challenged us to bring to fruition what we envisioned as the ideal research-driven GI cancer center,” said John L. Marshall, MD, director of the Ruesch Center.
