Superior care in your community
When you are sick, you want to be treated close to home,  close to your family and friends. That is especially true when you face one of the more challenging times in your life with a cancer diagnosis.

With The Cancer Center of Memorial Hospital, you do not need to leave the area. We bring quality cancer treatment close to you, in an accessible and comfortable environment. Here, you can:

  • Meet with your doctors
  • Receive necessary chemotherapy or immunotherapy drugs as well as other types of infusion therapies
  • Have your lab work and all types of radiology scans done
  • Browse our library for more information on your cancer
  • Meet with a support group and receive assistance from our social workers, nutrition specialists and oncology nurses
  • Stay stronger through your treatment and recover from illness faster through our cancer rehabilitation program
  • Participate in clinical trials to benefit from cutting-edge scientific advances

Our program is accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. CoC Accreditation  challenges cancer programs to enhance the care they provide  by addressing patient-centered needs and measuring the  quality of the care they deliver against national standards.  

Our Cancer Center has also achieved the prestigious Quality  Oncology Practice (QOPI®) certification from the American  Society of Clinical Oncology, awarded to only 200 cancer  programs in the USA. This certificate recognizes oncology  practices that are committed to delivering the highest quality 
of cancer care.
