Carroll Hospital Center’s nationally certified cancer program and expert team of surgeons, radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists and certified oncology nurses offer a full range of advanced therapies and procedures including:
Personalized Treatment Plans
Our team works with each patient to ensure that you are receiving the best, individualized treatment plan possible. Choice of cancer treatment is influenced by several factors, including the specific characteristics of your cancer; your overall condition; and whether the goal of treatment is to cure your cancer, keep your cancer from spreading, or to relieve the symptoms caused by cancer.
One or more treatment modalities may be used to provide you with the most effective treatment. Increasingly, it is common to use several treatment modalities together (concurrently) or in sequence with the goal of preventing recurrence. This is referred to as multi-modality treatment of the cancer.
Many of our therapies can be administered from the comfort and convenience of our outpatient center, the Carroll Regional Cancer Center. But for patients who need hospital care, Carroll Hospital Center’s oncology unit provides the latest treatments under the direction of a board-certified oncologist and nationally certified oncology nurse coordinator. Our compassionate care is enhanced by comfortable, private rooms equipped with a bathroom, television, plenty of natural light and a pullout sofa where family members can visit or sleep overnight.
At Carroll Hospital Center, the care of cancer patients is enhanced through a Cancer Conference that is held twice a month. All members of the oncology team—including surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, radiologists and pathologists—meet to discuss patient cases and appropriate treatment options. The conferences are open to other health care providers, such as primary care physicians, specialists, nurses and social workers. The Commission on Cancer states that these conferences promote quality care by enhancing patient management, improving outcomes and providing valuable education to providers.
