Cancer Center at BMC
It is one of the most physically and emotionally challenging realities anyone can ever face. And yet, a diagnosis of cancer, if handled with compassion, openness, carefully integrated treatment, clinical precision and the right technology, can help secure positive outcomes.
With an array of highly advanced services and technology, the new BMC Cancer Center, located on BMC’s Hillcrest campus at 165 Tor Court, Pittsfield, is focused on patients and their families and making the cancer treatment experience as comfortable and positive as possible.
The caring professionals at the BMC Cancer Center understand that people who are diagnosed with cancer have very compelling and immediate needs. The patient wants to know where their cancer is, the extent of their disease and how soon they can begin the most effective treatment. The Center takes a careful and multi-disciplined approach to each patient, leading to rapid evaluations, clear planning and individually guided care. Going well beyond highly skilled medical, surgical and radiation oncology, BMC’s comprehensive services include the region’s most advanced technology, extraordinary nursing care and a full range of prevention, outreach, screening and support programs.
BMC’s Cancer Program is nationally recognized. It twice has received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. It has been ranked among the Top 1% in the Nation and Top 10% in Massachusetts for medical excellence by CareChex, a division of Comparion and a leading rating agency on healthcare. The BMC program holds the #2 ranking in Massachusetts.
