We recognize that every cancer and every patient is different. At Highland Hospital, we take an interdisciplinary approach to treating cancer. We design individualized treatment plans designed to reach the best outcomes. Through our close affiliation with the International Center for Integrative Medicine (ICIM), we have the ability to customize individual patient using multiple treatment modalities, including the best of Eastern and Western medicines. This enables practitioners to provide the highest level of comprehensive care in the best interest of the patient. In this way, the patient has access to an integrated assessment, diagnosis and treatment with a team of specialists.
Cancer comes in many forms. We treat brain tumors and skin cancer; breast and gynecologic cancer; cancer of the head and neck as well as cancer of the prostate and urinary tract; skin cancer and lung cancer; cancer of the endocrine and gastrointestinal systems. We have a special pediatric oncology program. We care for patients from screening and diagnosis through radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. We also offer a full range of genetic testing and counseling. Services include:
- Intravenous hydration
- Antibiotic treatment infusions
- Blood transfusions
- Bone-marrow biopsies
- Intraperitoneal therapy
Our medical oncologists and hematologists are experts in chemotherapy and the therapeutic management of both solid tumors and blood disorders. The Outpatient Infusion Therapy program offers clinical treatments in support of patients’ well-being and recovery. Treatments are available for cancer patients and non-cancer patients by nationally-certified oncology nurses.
Cancer also takes a toll on the family and our team of healthcare professionals is experienced at communicating with all involved from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Our compassionate care makes you and your family will feel like we’re all part of the same family working for a common goal.
