Cancer Care

Surviving cancer begins with diagnosis and continues long after treatment. At Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Oncology and Hematology Program, patients actively participate in their own care, creating a personalized treatment and support program.

Our program offers access to advanced therapies and a multi-disciplinary approach that includes expert oncologists, hematologists, nurses, dietitians, social workers and support groups. No matter where you are in your cancer treatment, let Catskill Regional Medical Center help you find the best quality of life.

We offer the highest quality of cancer care, which is evidenced by our accreditation through the Commission on Cancer (COC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACOS). This commendation assures our patients that they will receive the best care from their diagnosis, throughout their treatment.
