As part of our commitment to provide superior patient care, we offer a comprehensive range of cancer treatments and therapy options close to home so those facing cancer can focus on recovery with the support of friends and family.
Comprehensive Cancer Care
Mercy and Memorial Hospitals, together with our partner the Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center (CBCC), are dedicated to meeting the special needs of patients who have cancer and their families. Our experienced team of caregivers is committed to providing high quality care for the mind, body, and spirit.
CBCC is one of the nation's largest freestanding cancer centers and is home to advanced options for the treatment of cancer. Staying at the forefront when it comes to technology is a priority. For example, CBCC is one of only a handful of locations on the West Coast to offer CyberKnife, a revolutionary non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of tumors anywhere in the body. The commitment means we bring the most advanced treatment options to our patients.
