Cancer Care in Your Community

Expert Cancer Care Team

The Cancer Care team of oncology professionals is extremely dedicated to providing outstanding patient care. The team has in-depth knowledge about the disease and are continually striving to know how cancer affects the lives of our patients and their families.

Staff

Regional's Cancer Care staff is helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Nursing care is provided by nurses with specialized knowledge and skills in oncology. Competency is evaluated annually. A licensed clinical social worker is available to offer support and encouragement to patients and family members on a one-on-one basis or in a group setting.

Nurse Navigator

We understand that a cancer diagnosis is very stressful to patients and requires that many treatment decisions be made. Regional provides a nurse navigator to help you through the entire process.

Regional's Cancer Care Program Features

We know it takes more than skilled specialists, advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment to effectively treat cancer. We also know that cancer patients do best in a specialized and sensitive environment where patients and families can fight against cancer with support, dignity and hope. To address all of our patients' expectations, we have tailored our services to meet the social and psychological needs, as well as the clinical needs, of patients and families.
