Make your treatment journey go more smoothly by choosing Genesis Cancer Care Center, a new facility centered on you and your family. There is no need to leave home for nationally ranked cancer care. From same-day results and fewer treatments to a staff who comforts and guides you in every step, welcome home to advance, embracing "WrapAround" cancer care.
To make sure you have the best possible experience, we designed the new center with input from our patients, doctors and nurses. You'll see the difference the minute you walk through our door.
Instead of sitting in a waiting room, you and your family are met by a nurse and escorted to a private room where all your caregivers come to you: doctors, nurse navigator, palliative care specialist and therapists as well as billing and registration staff. You'll leave with all your appointments made and immediate access to the nurse navigator – someone who can answer all your questions day and night.
Our unique chemotherapy pods are designed like private, first-class airline seating to help ease the stress of treatment. The room features large floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a fitness trail.
We also have our own dedicated oncology pharmacist and pharmacy on-site for the most up-to-date cancer protocols and faster access to medications.
Our two linear accelerators allow us to offer the very latest radiation treatments with little or no wait time. These treatments include high-dose hypofractionated radiation, which compresses your treatments into just a few visits rather than many days in a row.
If you need inpatient cancer services, you'll receive excellent care from skilled, compassionate nurses and technicians at Genesis Cancer Care Center..

Cancer Tests & Imaging
Your Genesis team may use an imaging procedure to screen you for cancer,see where the disease has spread or evaluate whether treatment is working.
If you need breast imaging,you can feel confident in our quality of care because we're a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). That means we're ACR-accredited in breast MRI,breast ultrasound,mammography and stereotactic breast biopsy.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy waves that you can't feel to kill cancer cells. Your doctor will recommend the type of radiation treatment that's right for you and your condition.
Internal Radiation (Brachytherapy)
Chemotherapy uses medications to kill cells that grow quickly,including cancer. This treatment also affects some healthy cells in your digestive tract,bone marrow and hair follicles,which can lead to side effects. Your Genesis care team will help you manage side effects while making sure you get the most possible benefit from chemotherapy.
Hormone therapy starves tumors of the hormones they need to grow. You may receive this treatment if you experience breast cancer or prostate cancer.
Your doctor may recommend a surgical procedure to:
• Remove tumors

Depending on your condition,your surgeon may use robotic surgical technology or another minimally invasive approach that speeds your recovery.
