BMC Cancer Treatment

At BMC, cancer care is a specific treatment designed for a specificcondition. The range and excellence of treatments available here received the highest ratings from the Commission on Cancer. BMC offers big-city hospital treatment- without the disruption of long-distance travel for care and follow-up.

BMC's cancer care begins with prevention, with education programs made available to the community through a variety of outreach services. BMC's cancer program also emphasises the importance of screening for many kinds of cancer, resulting in early detection.

With BMC's advanced clinical laboratory and imaging resources, diagnosis is efficient and accurate, as if determining the extent or progression of cancer, or staging. This information is the basis for pretreatment evaluation by BMC's cancer specialists.

A detailed individual treatment plan is implemented with BMC's advanced medical, surgical, and radiation procedures.

Exceptional participation in research and clinical trials at BMC offers patients the benefits of emerging treatment protocols not yet available elsewhere. In partnership with Berkshire Hematology Oncology (BHO), this commitment to research continually improves cancer care at BMS, as well as nationally.

Rehabilitation and support services help post-treatment cancer patients take the next step. Care and monitoring continue with counseling, discharge planning, nutritional support, pastoral and hospice services, and long-term follow-up.
