Oncology & Hematology
Compassion and expertise.
There have been more advances in cancer treatment than in any other area of medicine. Thanks to continuous research and treatment breakthroughs, people diagnosed with cancer can lead long and active lives. Cancer patients, when well managed, can work, travel, and go about daily activities with decreased pain, fatigue, and nausea.
We're on your team - fighting cancer with a collaborative approach. The oncology team at Memorial Hospital is committed to supporting you and your family with the latest advancements in chemotherapy, nutritional guidance, and more.
The team approach allows healthcare professionals from different disciplines to focus their expertise on a common enemy. Oncologists, surgeons, pharmacists, navigators, and specially trained nurses are all on your side.
We’ve even got a certified Lymphedema Therapist to provide treatment if you are trying to manage this permanent health condition following surgery.
Since cancer affects more than just your physical wellbeing, we also offer the emotional support and social services you need to keep life on track for you and your family. Coordinating appointments, managing side effects, working with your insurance provider, and linking you with helpful services are all on our radar.
