We offer a comfortable outpatient area for patients to receive chemotherapy, blood product transfusions, antibiotics, IV fluids, and other medications or procedures. Recliners and beds are available. Care is provided by an oncology nurse with chemotherapy certification.

Technology added to the cancer program is Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy, (IMRT). IMRT is an ultra-precise radiation therapy that allows higher cancer-killing radiation doses while decreasing potentially harmful doses and side effects to surrounding healthy tissues.
