Cancer Care

When faced with a cancer diagnosis, one of the most important decisions you and your loved ones must make is who to trust for your care. Last year, Mount Carmel diagnosed and treated over 2,800 cancer patients. But it's not just how many cancer patients we treat; it's how we treat them. With advanced diagnostics and treatments. And compassion.

Our team of skilled and experienced physicians includes board-certified medical, radiation and surgical oncologists who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancers, including:

Together they perform more than 35,000 outpatient treatments, 3,500 inpatient treatments and 2,600 cancer surgeries each year.

In addition to a full range of integrated cancer services, Mount Carmel's comprehensive cancer program offers advanced treatment, research and technological resources. We have access to over 100 clinical trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and other cooperative oncology groups that focus on every major type of cancer. We've also invested in state-of-the-art technologies like the daVinci Robotic Surgical System, external beam radiation therapy with IMRT, brachytherapy and CyberKnife to give you every opportunity to receive the very best treatment available.

That commitment to progressively prevent, detect and treat cancer has earned Mount Carmel accreditation with commendation as a Network Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. In addition, our Outpatient Cancer Treatment program is accredited by the American College of Radiology, so you have the confidence that you’re receiving the highest level of care.

Of course you won't just be receiving the highest level of care; you'll be receiving the most personal care as well. Our specially trained Oncology Nurse Navigators are here to offer you fellowship, resources, education and coordination before, during and after your treatment. And our clinical education program, support groups and nationally recognized palliative care program will make the cancer treatment process more empowering, supportive and comforting for you and your family.
