Cancer Care at the Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute at Sharp Memorial Hospital
Expert care you can count on.
Cancer touches every one of us. And that's why we put everything we've got into facing it. We are your partners in the quest to overcome this disease and emerge cancer free.
At the Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute at Sharp Memorial, we face cancer the best ways we know how — with cutting-edge treatments, advanced technologies, groundbreaking clinical research and complete dedication to your wellness and vitality.
Leading the way with innovation.
When it comes to cancer treatment at Sharp, we explore all possibilities. A leader in clinical oncology research, we offer clinical trials where new cancer treatments are discovered and put to use with positive outcomes. Our nationally accredited cancer services offer you the best of care every step of the way, from genetic counseling to diagnostic imaging to radiation therapy.
Treatment designed around you.
Beyond our comprehensive inpatient care at Sharp Memorial Hospital, we offer convenient outpatient services just next door at our Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion — providing advanced imaging, chemotherapy and radiation services, as well as outpatient counseling and wellness treatments.
At Sharp Memorial, our Breast Health Center cares specifically for breast cancer and other breast conditions, and our Neuro-Oncology Center specializes in treating brain and spinal cord cancer. We also offer innovative options for diagnosing and treating lung cancer, which includes robotic surgery.
We view your course of treatment as a shared journey — working together to create a plan that's right for you.
Healing your whole self.
We do all we can to ensure your comfort and peace of mind while in our care. After inpatient surgery, you stay in a private room with a sleeper sofa where a loved one can spend the night. We offer free support groups and counseling and provide complementary therapies to heal your mind, body and spirit. We also offer resources to help you stay informed and be empowered to manage your care.
We also practice collaborative care, which means you see the same doctor and nurse every time you visit. That way, you, your family and your health care specialists form a team — all rallied around your optimal treatment and best possible outcome.
And our cancer patient navigators are here to help ease the burden of your diagnosis. It's all part of what we call The Sharp Experience.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
