The Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center
Located on the Loyola campus in Maywood, the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center is one of the first freestanding cancer centers to integrate cancer treatment and research.
The 125,000-square-foot center was designed to foster a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care and research, stimulating communication and an open exchange of ideas among scientists and researchers at the Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and healthcare practitioners at Loyola University Medical Center. This cooperation advances our efforts in cancer research, treatment and prevention.
As part of this state-of-the-art center, Loyola offers a convenient outpatient cancer clinic that offers cancer treatment on a daily basis. The 60,000-square-foot space houses three clinics and 34 exam and procedure rooms.
In 1995, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin received treatment at Loyola for pancreatic cancer. He was treated with the highly complex Whipple procedure, as well as chemotherapy at the cancer center. During his daily treatments, the Cardinal sought out and spoke to other patients at the cancer center, praying with them, sharing stories and offering emotional support. In October 1996, the Cardinal gave permission for the cancer center to be named in his honor, as a symbol of Loyola’s commitment to a holistic approach to cancer care.
The cancer center is located at 2160 S. First Ave, Maywood, IL 60153.

The Marjorie G. Weinberg Cancer Care Center
Loyola extends its integrated approach to cancer care at the Marjorie G. Weinberg Cancer Center, located at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park. Located just three miles north of Loyola’s Maywood campus, Gottlieb brings Loyola’s latest interdisciplinary treatment protocols and pioneering clinical trials to patients in the comfort of a community hospital. The center was named after Marjorie G. Weinberg, a long-time member of the board of directors who devoted her life to Gottlieb Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Weinberg was the daughter of the hospital's co-founders, David and Dorothy Gottlieb. Her many civic and philanthropic activities greatly benefited the fields of health, education and the arts. Also a cancer patient, Mrs. Weinberg played a key role in the design of the cancer center that bears her name. The cancer center is located at 715 W. North Ave., Melrose Park, IL 60160. Gottlieb Memorial Hospital also offers colorectal surgery and surgical oncology at 675 W. North Ave. in Melrose Park.
