Quality Cancer Care Close to Home

At NCH, we focus on providing you the best preventive care possible when it comes to your risk for cancer. With regular screening and advanced diagnostics, our goal is to identify cancer at the earliest stage possible.

If you do receive a cancer diagnosis, our highly skilled team of board-certified medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, other specialists and advanced practitioners will work with you to create a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan focused on the best possible outcome. Additionally, our breast, lung, colorectal, prostate and pancreatic cancer patients’ care teams also include a dedicated patient navigator. This specially trained nurse helps patients understand their treatment options, assists with scheduling tests and appointments, and provides resources and support.

We are fully prepared and ready to safely welcome you, following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health authorities, using the best practices for hygiene, infection control and social distancing. Don’t wait to get the care you need. See how we’re keeping you safe.

Support Services

Cancer Support Groups

We offer various support groups led by an oncology social worker for patients fighting certain types of cancer. Additionally, we have support groups tailored to men or women, as well as groups focused on helping patients improve their sense of well-being and comfort.

Precision Medicine

By looking at malignant tumors on a molecular level, we can identify a tumor’s unique gene mutation(s) and expressions so that we target it with the most appropriate treatment. We can customize a patient’s care and treatment plan based on his or her unique genetic characteristics and health history.

Genetic Counseling

For patients who have a family history of cancer and/or a higher risk for cancer due to genetics, we work with Insight Medical Genetics, a group of genetic counselors who help patients understand their risks for cancer and explore lifestyle changes that can minimize those risks.

Cardio-oncology

Our program offers prevention, intervention and monitoring of cardiovascular issues that patients undergoing cancer treatment may face.

Patient Navigator and Social Worker

For several types of cancer, we offer the support and guidance of a patient navigator and oncology social worker. They can help you understand your treatment options, assist you with scheduling tests and appointments, and help you find the resources you need before and after cancer treatment.

Clinical Trials

Our patients may have access to clinical trials, which can provide opportunities for newer treatments.

NCH Wig Boutique

Our volunteers understand the anxiety that a woman experiences with hair loss due to cancer. They will take the time to answer your questions and help find the best wig for you. Call 847-618-4968 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
