Bay Area Cancer Center

Cancer Center

Our facilities and programs provide 
the full range of therapies,
treatments and support you’ll need.

When the diagnosis is cancer, you want the best care available, no matter how far away. You'll be glad to know that the care you need is close to home.

Bay Area Cancer Center offers modern, sophisticated cancer treatment in a comprehensive, one-stop environment. With up-to-date facilities, board-certified physicians, and a professional, compassionate staff, we provide the same treatment protocols as much larger facilities. You'll be cared for by highly skilled professionals who just happen to be your neighbors. Our team is dedicated to a healthy South Coast -- starting with you.

Why choose us?

Some people think only a big-city hospital can provide expert cancer care. That's rarely true. While a few forms of cancer do require a highly specialized therapeutic regimen, excellent care for most kinds of cancer is available right here at Bay Area Cancer Center.

That's comforting to know, because seeking care far from home can be hard on patients and families. Travel can be exhausting, especially if you're already weakened by cancer. Transportation, meals and lodging add expense to your medical bills.

Bay Area Cancer Center is dedicated to giving you the best care possible, together with the convenience of comprehensive treatment close to home. That means providing you with a broad range of treatment and services:  

  •  Radiation therapy
  •  Chemotherapy
  •  Robotic-assisted surgery (allows minimally invasive procedures)
  •  Reconstructive surgery
  •  Post-surgical rehabilitation
  •  Nutrition therapy
  •  Pain management
  •  MyChart patient portal (allows you online access to medical records)
  •  Genetic testing
  •  Sentinel node biopsy
  •  Lymphedema treatment
  •  Access to even more experience and expertise through our affiliation with Oregon Health and Science University.

If your cancer is one of the few cases requiring specialized therapies in a major metropolitan hospital, we'll help you connect with the care you need.  Talk to your doctor about your options for cancer care, and then pick the program that's best for you. For most patients, the treatment journey starts with a program tailored for you, right here at Bay Area Cancer Center.

Advanced technology, with a human touch
Our radiation team treats
hundreds of patients annually.

Our radiation team treats hundreds of patients annually, and we know radiation treatment can seem mysterious and overwhelming. So our multidisciplinary team works hard to make you feel comfortable and well-informed. We don't just target tumors -- we care for the whole person.

Radiation therapy is the careful use of radiation to treat cancer. External beam radiation therapy focuses a high-energy X-ray beam on a specific area. It destroys cancer cells while minimizing impact on the surrounding healthy tissue. The treatment is administered like an X-ray, using machines called linear accelerators. Our treatment modalities include:

  • Standard Radiation Therapy
  • Image-Guided Radiation Therapy
  • Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
  • Radiopharmaceutical Therapy
