A Message from Dr. David Bartlett
Dr. David Bartlett

I joined Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute (AHNCI) as chair in 2020 with the vision to transform cancer care. I am deeply honored to lead and continue to help advance this distinguished and vital program in an organization that puts the health of patients and communities at the center of every equation. 

On behalf of AHNCI, we are grateful for our steadfast and loyal donors. Your dedication is integral to expanding and enhancing patient programs, services, facilities, and amenities as well as innovative cancer research. 

Philanthropy is critical to the future success, innovation, and growth of AHNCI. Every dollar counts, and we are thankful for the continued philanthropic partnerships from our grateful patients, corporations, foundations, and community members who support our vision. 

I am pleased to share a few stories of your impact on AHNCI. I invite you to connect with us to learn more about the high-level, individualized care you made possible.
