It’s frightening to face a cancer diagnosis. At the Carilion Clinic Cancer Center, we’re with you every step of the way, making sure you feel cared for and supported through diagnosis, treatment and afterwards as life returns to normal. We consider it our responsibility to not only treat your cancer medically but also to support you and your family throughout your treatment journey.
We’re widely known as the pre-eminent choice for cancer treatment in our area, and with good reason. Our Cancer Center has earned recognition as one of the nation’s best. In 2011 we were honored with the prestigious “Outstanding Achievement Award,” plus a Three-Year Approval with Commendation, from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer for our commitment to providing high-quality, comprehensive care that meets strict standards of excellence.
We offer preventive education to help members of our community reduce their risk of cancer and screening programs to ensure that whenever possible, cancer is detected at the earliest and most treatable stages.
Sophisticated technology sets Carilion apart. We’re among a select few hospitals statewide to offer innovative treatments such as SIR-Spheres® and CyberKnife®, along with targeted radiation technologies and access to the most recent clinical trials.
Our new Inpatient Oncology unit, housed in a wing at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, allows every patient to recuperate in comfort in a private room with beautiful views of the Roanoke Valley. The unit is staffed by physician specialists and nurses who are dedicated to caring for patients with cancer. Also on our inpatient care team are social workers and dieticians to help you to help as you regain your health.
For terminally ill patients who are no longer being treated for their cancer, we provide compassionate, supportive care that emphasizes comfort through the end stages of the disease.
