RENTON, Wash. & MENLO PARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Providence, a not-for-profit health system serving the Western U.S., and GRAIL, LLC, a healthcare company with a mission to detect cancer early when it can be cured, today announced the expansion of their partnership to offer multi-cancer early detection screening as part of clinical care to eligible individuals across the entire Providence health system.
Through the partnership, eligible patients at Providence’s 52 hospitals and 900 clinics across seven states will have access to GRAIL’s Galleri® multi-cancer early detection (MCED) test, as part of a comprehensive range of health services. In clinical studies, Galleri has demonstrated the ability to detect signals across more than 50 types of cancers — more than 45 of which lack recommended screening tests today. When a cancer signal is detected, Galleri can help ascertain where in the body the cancer is located with high accuracy, all from a single blood draw. In addition to broadening access to MCED testing, the expansion supports innovative diagnostics and genomics research aimed at improving cancer screening and treatment.
