Couric Cancer Center

Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center

The Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center offers convenient access to the full range of state-of-the-art cancer treatments – all in a warm, inviting and invigorating space designed for the needs of patients and their families.




Emily Couric envisioned a place where cancer patients would be treated with respect, where they could confront their disease with grace and dignity, and where they would be encouraged and sustained in their recovery. 
Before losing her own battle with pancreatic cancer, Couric invited the University to envision a cancer center that met the individual needs of each patient and that treated the whole person, not just the disease. In September 2006, the University of Virginia Board of Visitors approved the naming of the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center, paying tribute to the late senator and her efforts to acquire new resources for cancer care and research in the Commonwealth.

I ordered my brick in memory of my father who passed away July 2011.
It reads:
