    TREATMENT

    The Oncology Department at Memorial Medical Center offers a comfortable environment for cancer treatment with many helpful services. The Radiation Oncology Department administers radiation therapy on an outpatient and inpatient basis. We also offer clinical trials to help find new and better ways to detect, diagnose, prevent or treat cancer.

    COMPLEMENTARY THERAPY

    Complementary therapies are offered to help a patient during the process of recovery, healing or coping. Therapies include music, touch, writing, art, movement, fitness programs, and more. Family members and caregivers can also participate.

    LIVING WITH CANCER

    The emotional needs and proper nutrition of a patient are very important during treatment. Social services, support groups, dietitians and nutrition tips are available to help the quality of life during treatment.

    STAYING INFORMED

    Find ways to stay informed by checking upcoming classes and events, reading the latest press releases, videos and resources online.

    PATIENT NAVIGATION

    Memorial Medical Center offers additional patient support through its oncology nurse navigator program. A breast cancer nurse navigator is available to assist survivors by providing education, resources and emotional support to help patients get through their cancer journey. Navigation services add another dimension to MMC’s holistic approach.
