We will stand by you and your family, every step of the way
When the diagnosis is cancer, patients and their loved ones want and deserve the best care possible. At Berkshire Health Systems, we believe our community should have access to the highest level of care, and that no one should have to travel a great distance to receive it. This is why we created the BMC Cancer Center at our Hillcrest Campus, where the region’s most advanced and comprehensive cancer program is consolidated in one location that is dedicated to our patients and their best possible outcomes.
At the BMC Cancer Center, our patients will never face this diagnosis alone. We will stand by you and your family every step of the way, with skilled care, comfort and support, and a full complement of programs that address each patient’s physical, emotional, and practical needs as they advance through treatment and recovery.
Expertise Our collaboration with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston means that our standards and practices are validated by one of the nation’s leading cancer care and research institutions, with many additional opportunities for our patients.
When you select the BMC Cancer Center, you are choosing an exceptional team of highly-skilled physicians who specialize in all forms of cancer and who ensure that every patient is the complete focus of their attention. In addition, an extraordinary staff of Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and other support staff means that our patients have access to efficient, compassionate, well-coordinated care.
Leading Edge Technology A state-of-the art radiation oncology clinic is housed at the BMC Cancer Center, featuring the most advanced technology in the region – or anywhere – that is now achieving highly precise, quicker-than-ever delivery of radiation treatment to cancer patients who need this therapy. The clinic includes two high-speed linear accelerators with robotic components which allow the rapid creation of complex treatment plans and customized dose distributions, and which also maximize the delivery of radiation to cancerous tissue while minimizing the effects on surrounding, healthy tissue.
Compassionate Care Most of all, the BMC Cancer Center is distinguished by its compassionate care. Every member of our team is here because of their complete dedication to helping patients who are facing one of life’s most difficult challenges. In addition to their advanced training, our staff treats every patient as the unique individual they are, with their own specific needs, hopes, and concerns.
