Take Comfort

Imagine not having to leave your community for access to the latest cancer treatment protocols, clinical trials, or even Smilow Cancer Hospital physicians. Take comfort in the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital. Our highly-trained Griffin Hospital surgeons and staff, along with medical and radiation oncologists from Smilow Cancer Hospital, combine to form a care team that offers comprehensive cancer care at a whole new level. It’s a different kind of cancer care - one that unites science and sensitivity - all in a compassionate, beautiful healing environment that's more comforting, and closer to home than ever before.

Your Cancer Treatment

Just as patients are unique and cancers vary, so each treatment may be different. In determining whether surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or any of these in combination will be your most effective course of treatment, your physician considers your general health and medical history, as well as the type, size and location of your cancer.

The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital offers a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, including radiation therapy, in an outpatient setting requiring no overnight stay.

In addition to your primary treatment approach, your doctor may recommend additional therapies or services to support your treatments or to help you cope with side effects. These may include nutritional consultation, patient support groups, massage, naturopathy or homeopathic prescriptions, yoga or relaxation therapy, to name a few.
