Having someone who can help you through your cancer, from diagnosis through treatment, is important. At the Mercy Redding Cancer Centers, our cancer navigators are available to focus on you, answering any questions and providing the support you need.
You are not alone when going through your cancer treatment. Our team is here to help guide you through the entire process.
Here’s what you can expect from our cancer navigators:
The Mercy Redding Cancer Centers sets the standard in the North State for comprehensive care for patients through applied research, education, prevention and early detection.
That’s why the American College of Surgeons has awarded the Mercy Redding Cancer Center its highest level of accreditation for comprehensive cancer programs for more than 30 years.
In addition, the Mercy Redding Cancer Centers continues its important collaboration with the University of California San Francisco. When you receive services through the relationship with UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, you benefit from the strengths of UCSF’s clinical expertise, outstanding cancer research programs and Mercy Redding Cancer Centers’ community resources and medical staff expertise.
Oncologists that practice at the Mercy Redding Cancer Centers use a team approach to provide the finest quality of care. A tumor board brings together radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to examine each diagnosis, and strategize and plan the best treatment for each patient.
Treatment options include:
Mercy Redding Cancer Centers has a strategic partnership with GenesisCare, who is a leader in radiation therapy services. GenesisCare is equipped with the latest radiation therapy technology, so along with the team of specially trained physicians, physicists and therapists, you’ll be treated with the highest level of care.
The Infusion Center at the Mercy Redding Cancer Centers offers infusion services in a patient-friendly environment. Our center strives to offer the best experience possible under what can be difficult circumstances.
When you visit the our centers, you will be cared for by experienced, certified nurses who provide a warm, supportive environment while you receive your treatment.
At the Mercy Redding Cancer Centers, we believe every cancer journey is unique and deserves a tailored approach specific to each individual. Through a technique called precision oncology, we are able to do that. Precision oncology uses molecular profiling to target specific genetic alterations in a patient’s tumors. Oncologists then treat the cancer with focused, specialized therapies, instead of a technique such as chemotherapy which can harm cancerous and healthy cells. Learn More
At the Mercy Redding Cancer Centers, we offer a number of programs to help you including early detection, support groups and, if necessary, hospice care.
The Floyd Morgan Family Cancer Resource Center and the Medical Library at our hospital offers you and your loved ones a place to get the support you need, providing printed and online information about treatment and rehabilitation options.
It is also the location for support groups, classes, workshops, coordination of community cancer screenings and education, and a space to meet with the Oncology Nurse Liaison (ONL). The ONL is a Registered Nurse with expertise in cancer nursing and provides education, navigation and support at any point during the cancer journey.
