The Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic was established at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center in Milwaukee in 1989. Named after the legendary Green Bay Packers coach who lost his life to cancer, the clinic was founded to serve patients and families with the level of passion and quest for excellence that were synonymous with Lombardi teams. Since then, the services, resources and philosophy of care of the original Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic have been extended to benefit patients beyond the greater Milwaukee area.
Oncology care was established at the Manitowoc Clinic in 1975 under the direction of medical oncologist Edward Barylak, MD. Affiliation with ECOG (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group), an international cancer research organization, was established in 1982. A second medical oncologist, Andrew Yetter, MD, joined the practice in 1997. In March of 1998, the center was renamed and dedicated as a Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic. Radiation Oncology was added to the clinic when it moved to a new state-of-the-art facility in 2006.
