Regional Cancer Center

The Regional Cancer Center at Holy Name Medical Center provides a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of all cancers while creating a personalized strategy for each patient's unique medical, physical and social needs. All Holy Name medical oncologists specialize in specific cancers and work with other oncology experts such as surgical oncologists and radiation therapists to create distinct teams that formulate precise and unique treatment plans for each patient's type of cancer.

This approach provides a great advantage to patients: A group of highly specialized physicians meet and review each patient's diagnosis before jointly designing a customized plan of therapy that is not only geared to obtain the best chance for a cure but also to minimize side effects and improve quality of life. This process also enables the team to be at the forefront of the latest treatments and research so they can be rapidly applied to patients, who are able to remain close to home while receiving medical and supportive care.

The Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, the American College of Radiology and the American Society of Radiation Oncology.

Medical Oncology

Medical oncologists are specialists in diagnosing and treating cancer. They oversee the patient's care from diagnosis through treatment, coordinating treatment with other specialists and helping the patient manage symptoms and side effects from treatment. They use chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy or biological therapy, or a combination of these to treat the disease.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation oncologists use radiation therapy to treat cancer. They apply their expertise in deciding which of the various types of radiation delivery should be used, such as radioactive implantations, external beam radiotherapy or hyperthermia, to produce the best outcomes for each patient. Holy Name physicians use technology that allows them to see exactly where tumors are located in the body, taking into account breathing or slight movements, so they can deliver much more precise treatment.

Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncologists treat cancer by removing tumors and nearby tissue through open or laparoscopic procedures. They can diagnose, stage and treat certain types of cancers. They decide whether a patient is a good candidate for surgery based on the type, size, location, grade and stage of the tumor as well as the individual's general health. Often surgery is combined with other types of treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation or hormone therapy, which can be administered before or after the procedure. Surgical oncologists also manage side effects from surgery.
