01. History

History of The University of Kansas Cancer Center

The Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Care Pavilion provides expert cancer care in an outpatient setting. The facility, located in Westwood, Kansas, gets its name from husband and wife pair, Richard and Annette Bloch. Their foray into cancer care began when Richard was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 1978.

The cancer care provided at The Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Care Pavilion is all about personalization and ensuring the patient is at ease during their cancer journey. For instance, prior to a patient’s first visit they receive a personalized appointment guide to help them navigate their first time at the center.

While a cancer diagnosis is never easy receiving care from The Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Care Pavilion is done in a way to minimize patient discomfort. The three-story building features many amenities to make a patient’s time there as enjoyable as possible. Included in the facility is a cafe, an accredited boutique and appearance center as well as complimentary valet parking for all patients. Providing these services helps comfort patients, like those with mesothelioma, receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
