10,000 square feet. The Altus cancer center is located just across the street from Jackson County Memorial Hospital. Its doors opened in September 2008. The center provides medical oncology, radiation therapy, outpatient chemotherapy and laboratory services. Onsite physicians (medical oncologists and radiation oncologists) nurses, therapists and a staff trained in outpatient cancer care provide a multidisciplinary team approach. The equipment and facilities are state of the art.
Following the patient’s diagnosis and treatment plan, our experienced chemotherapy nurses and radiation therapists provide treatment according to the directions of the patient’s physician.
Our new state-of-the-art linear accelerator incorporates CT scanning for precise positioning of the radiation beam for better treatment location with less damage to surrounding tissues. Chemotherapy rooms are also available so that patients may rest comfortably while receiving treatments.
Dermatology Services also available in Altus.
The Altus Cancer Center offers both radiation therapy and chemo therapy in a healing and compassionate environment — Right Here Close to Home.
