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're not alone. Chances 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 may 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 the 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.
Our Cancer Care team of professionals includes oncologists, surgeons, pathologists,
radiologists, referring physicians, 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
