Leading breast cancer treatment in Philadelphia
New developments in radiology and brachytherapy at Mercy Fitzgerald.
The Mercy Cancer Center at Mercy Fitzgerald offers the best of two worlds: leading-edge medical expertise in a comfortable community hospital setting.
“I think of it as a blend of academic and community,” says Eugene Choi, MD, hematologist/oncologist. “We have all the reasons people think they have to go to a big academic hospital—the latest technology, the specialists—all in a neighborhood setting.”
Mercy Fitzgerald’s cancer specialists can treat nearly any type of cancer. Patients who are treated elsewhere can also receive follow-up treatment at Mercy Fitzgerald.
The Mercy Cancer Center is home to:
- A state-of-the-art infusion center for chemotherapy— Free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and complimentary parking offer comfort and convenience for patients.
- Cancer specialists—Not only is Mercy Fitzgerald home base for Dr. Choi, but it’s also home to other cancer specialists, including surgeons, radiation oncologists, a nurse navigator and a clinical trials nurse.
- A radiation oncology department that offers the latest treatment techniques, such as external beam therapy and brachytherapy, including high-dose rate and low-dose rate therapies.
- Specialty and support services—Cancer patients often need additional specialty services such as pathology, radiology and surgery. “Interventional radiology is close by, as are offices for thoracic and other surgeries, and a resource room for our support groups,” says Dr. Choi. “Being under one roof makes it easy for patients. They don’t have to leave the building.”
