Cancer Center Services & Staff
cancer_center_rhode_island2.jpgThe staff at The Cancer Center includes:

  • Four hematology/oncology physicians
  • Registered nurses certified in oncology
  • Certified nursing assistants
  • Clinical research associates

They are supported by surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, social workers, nutritionists, librarians, and physical, occupational and speech therapists. In addition, patients have access to the full array of services of Care New England, including a visiting nurse and home care program.

Each member of the team is integral to patient care. Nurses in the infusion/treatment area of The Cancer Center work with you and your family or caregivers to plan, coordinate and evaluate care. Clinical social workers consult with the team on patient-related issues, arrange for community services and provide support groups. Registered dietitians provide nutritional assessments, nutrient analysis and nutrition education when necessary.

Cancer Program and Services
Memorial's cancer program has received accreditation with commendation as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.

We evaluate and treat all forms of cancer in adults, including prostate, breast, lung, bladder, ovarian, colon and leukemia, as well as patients with immunological diseases and blood disorders.

Infusion area
Patients can have transfusions, infusions, injections, chemotherapy and immunotherapy in a comfortable treatment area with individual televisions and movies.
