Cancer Services at BMC
The first phase of the new state-of-the-art BMC Cancer Center opened on November 18, 2013, including the new offices of Berkshire Hematology Oncology, BMC Infusion Services, and the Cancer Center Laboratory and Pharmacy. The new Center is located at the Hillcrest Campus of BMC, 165 Tor Court, Pittsfield.
When the Center is fully complete, it will include Hematology Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Infusion Services, Pharmacy, Lab and integrative support services for patients and family. Radiation Oncology is currently still located at the main hospital campus, and is coupled with a talented and compassionate staff to provide high-quality treatment for most forms of cancer. Overall planning and care is provided by medical, surgical and radiation oncologists who work as a team to provide individualized treatment with the most advanced technology and equipment.
Berkshire Medical Center's Cancer Program has been approved by the American College of Surgeon's Commission on Cancer continuously since 1979 and received its Outstanding Achievement Award in both 2006 and 2009, achieving this distinction twice in the two years it has been eligible for the honor.
The Cancer Institute of the Berkshires at BMC treats patients with many forms of cancer and has specialized treatment options including prostate seeding, where small irradiated “seeds” are placed in the prostate and provide a concentrated dose to the cancerous area without affecting surrounding tissue.
Our comprehensive services include medical, surgical and radiation oncology provided by highly trained physicians who specialize in the care of cancer patients. The BMC radiation department is equipped with two linear accelerators to provide state-of-the-art radiation therapy, as well as a CT Scan simulation system to reduce preparation for patients receiving radiation therapy.
Our radiation oncology patients are invited to use the parking lot directly in front of the Cancer Institute of the Berkshires. Entrance to the lot is at the corner of North and Wahconah Streets.
