There are many kinds of cancer, and all of them can seem scary. No matter what type of cancer you or your loved one is facing, knowledge can help ease those fears and help you make good decisions about your treatment.
Our warm and friendly community hospital rivals top cancer centers in its sophisticated treatment options, from Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) for brain tumors to the precise, function-sparing surgical techniques used by our neurosurgeon, general, thoracic and breast surgeons as well as urologists.
Our chemotherapeutic agents and targeted therapies are given according to the latest guidelines and clinical trial results.
Our state-of-the-art linear accelerators with On-Board Imagers (OBI) add Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) capability. Interventional radiology offers tumor ablations in the liver, lung and kidney.
Though the technology is impressive, it would mean little without the skill and experience of our entire team, from our diagnostic specialists to our board-certified surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists. The special synergy between team and technology is reflected in our favorable five-year survival outcomes and is what makes us who we are—your choice for excellence in cancer care.
