ONCOLOGY & CANCER CARE
Garden City Hospital is committed to providing outpatient cancer care in
a community hospital setting close to home.
Cancer Care Close to Home
The diagnosis of cancer can have a profound effect on patients and their
families, affecting physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual foundations.
Yet, you need to know that you are not alone. Chance are, you or someone
you know will be touched by cancer. Fortunately, cancer treatment has
come a long way. Many common diagnostic tests and treatments can now be
provided in outpatient, community settings.
Cancer care at Garden City Hospital can begin with preventative and diagnostic
services such as mammography from our outpatient breast center, and continue
with care with a medical oncologist as well as outpatient infusion services
(chemotherapy). Surgery and other specialty care may be involved depending
on diagnosis. You'll be glad to know that Garden City Hospital also
has an outstanding rehabilitation program. Some types of cancers can involve
related conditions such as lymphedema. Physical therapy can be helpful
for this and other related conditions. Some patients may also benefit
from treatment at our wound care center.
Our Cancer Care team of professionals includes, oncologists, surgeons,
pathologists, radiologists, referring physician, and chemotherapy-qualified
nursing staff who collaborate to determine the best treatment options
for patients. We also work together to educate and empower patients, so
they can actively participate in their own healing, and make informed
treatment decisions that are based on their needs.
We know it's important for patients to receive cancer care close to
home. That's why we, and our physicians can provide referrals for
support services to help you manage your journey. If you have a loved
one that has cancer, feel free to set up an appointment to speak with
our oncology specialists.
