Mercy UC Davis Cancer Center
A cancer diagnosis can be scary and difficult, not only for you as the patient, but also for your family and friends. At the Mercy UC Davis Cancer Center, our goal is to make your experience as easy as possible by providing comprehensive, compassionate care in one convenient setting, right next to the hospital.
Our board certified doctors, chemotherapy certified nurses, and other medical professionals focus on your needs and make sure you feel like a person and not a number. Patients appreciate little touches that make each visit easier, such a complimentary snacks, hugs, and conversation from the staff, in a relaxed environment where patients are truly treated like family.
Our Cancer Center patients have access to services through Mercy Medical Center, such as nutrition counseling, massage therapy, spiritual counseling, support groups, and assistance from a social worker. There’s also a healing garden composed of trees, flowers, and a fountain next to the Cancer Center that serves as a soothing place for patients to relax with family or sit alone to reflect.
University Based Cancer Care, Close to Home
One important feature of the Mercy Cancer Center is our affiliation with the UC Davis Cancer Care Network, a collaboration of hospital-based cancer centers in Northern and Central California dedicated to providing exceptional care to patients close to home.
