Comprehensive care in a single setting.
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 as 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.
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.
The Mercy UC Davis Cancer Center is also accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons, demonstrates a cancer program’s commitment to providing high-quality, multidisciplinary, patient-centered cancer care. CoC accreditation is nationally recognized by organizations, including the National Cancer Institute, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, National Quality Forum, American Cancer Society, and The Joint Commission, as having established data-driven performance measures for the provision of quality cancer care.
