A multi-disciplinary team of physicians, surgeons, radiologists, radiation therapists, pathologists, physical therapists and support staff entrusted to oversee the many activities of our Regional Cancer Center.
Oncology and Infusion Center Team (Chemotherapy)
Staffed with outstanding and compassionate nursing professionals with expertise in chemotherapy and biotherapy treatments. We also provide in-house laboratory service with department phlebotomists and an on-site nutritional counseling. Encompassing the entire second floor of the Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center, our chemotherapy patients have access to 18 comfortable rooms, two bedrooms, two procedure rooms, six exam rooms and an onsite pharmacy staffed with a full-time pharmacist.
Dedicated Oncology Inpatient Team (7th floor hospital wing)
Dedicated solely to cancer care, this hospital wing is staffed by an Oncology Nursing Society certified nurse manager, chemotherapy/biotherapy certified registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers and clinical dietitians. At MVH we give the care we would want for our own mothers, and this team supports patients and their families emotionally as well. The floor has private rooms and a family lounge with internet access and other comforts. The unit also provides end-of-life care.
Radiation Therapy Team
Our board-certified medical professionals -- physicians, physicists, dosimetrist, radiation therapists and oncology nurses -- provide the highest quality radiation treatments to the community and to the region.
Our Regional Cancer Center encompasses various rehabilitation care services for our patients including an in-house Lymphedema Center, two hyperbaric oxygen therapy units (HBOT) and speech pathology. Lymphedema can result from any disruption of the normal, healthy lymph system, the small nodes that filter harmful substances out of our bodies and help fight infection. Treating certain cancers with radiation therapy or surgery can sometimes affect the lymph system, causing swelling. The arms or legs are most often affected, but symptoms can be managed with treatment.
Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive, painless, high-oxygen pressure therapy used for different conditions and illnesses such as hard-to-heal wounds, diabetic ulcers and, very rarely, adverse effects on the skin from radiation treatments (shown above).
