History of Cancer Centers of the Carolinas
The "first" dedicated hematology and medical oncology practice in the Upstate of South Carolina was started in 1976 by Dr. Reginald Brooker. Dr. Brooker was joined by Dr. Gerald King in 1978, and Hematology and Oncology Associates was formed. The group and the area attracted more partners, all of whom possessed a strong background in academic training. Members were trained and have served as professors at such respected institutions as Duke, Emory, Vanderbilt, MD Anderson, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
With the extension of the practice to various sites around the Upstate, and with the addition of capabilities to include Radiation Oncology, Gynecologic Oncology, Diagnostic Radiology, Clinical Trials, and Research and Autologous/Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation - the practice took on a new name of Cancer Centers of the Carolinas (CCC). This name is a better reflection of the true scope of our substantial capabilities. Through clinical excellence and research, CCC has been afforded the opportunity to care for thousands of patients in the Upstate and beyond.
