The James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, a component of Strong Memorial Hospital, is the Wilmot Cancer Institute's flagship location. This 84-bed cancer center offers patients and their families comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services, and it is home to one of upstate New York’s largest blood and marrow transplant programs.
