Hematology cancer treatments
Hematology oncology is an important component in investigating and treating cancer. Having a blood disorder does not automatically mean you have cancer, nor does it increase your cancer risk.
However, if you receive a cancer diagnosis, you will receive the high-quality care you need. Our hematologists work closely with oncologists and other specialists to develop an effective treatment plan for your condition.
As part of our comprehensive oncology program, you'll have access to education, resources and a cancer care team. Your team will support and guide you from diagnosis to treatment and recovery.
We have full hematology and laboratory services on site at our hospitals and affiliated facilities. All of our locations are staffed with skilled technicians who provide quick, accurate diagnostic test results.
Advanced technology for effective communication
Complementing our testing and imaging technology, we have a picture archival communication system (PACS). This allows doctors fast access to your medical records, images and test results from anywhere in our network. Doctors can use PACS to share information instantaneously with a consulting physician to help ensure you receive the most accurate diagnosis.
