Available services and treatments


  • Chemotherapy – often referred to as chemo – works throughout the entire body. Chemo treatments are extremely specific depending on the type of cancer, where it is, the size of the cancer and how it's affecting your overall health.
  • Cancer can be treated with a single chemotherapy drug, but often several drugs are used in a certain order or in specific combinations.
  • Chemotherapy is sometimes the only treatment you might need. However, chemo is often used with surgery, radiation therapy or both.
  • Chemo can also be used to shrink a tumor before or after radiation therapy or surgery to help kill remaining cancer cells.

Learn more about the details of chemotherapy.

Infusion services

  • Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy allows you access to important medical treatment without interrupting your daily life.
  • IV therapy lets your physician deliver medicine or nutrition directly into a vein. Infusion therapy can also be a good way to treat health conditions for those that have trouble swallowing pills.
