Caring Treatment from the Region's Leading Oncologists

Community Healthcare System offers some of the most advanced treatment technologies and services to not just fight cancer, but to care for the whole person – mind, body and spirit.

As Northwest Indiana’s leader in the cancer care, more patients turn to our cancer treatment centers and experienced oncologists for our unique blend of medical excellence and compassionate care. Working with a team of specialists across the healthcare system -- including Health Navigators -- we use this experience to help patients find the best cancer treatment, in a comfortable, caring environment close to home.

Our commitment to advanced cancer care is demonstrated by such examples as being among the first in the country to employ robotics in the surgical suite and more precisely deliver radiation with CyberKnife®. Most recently, we have introduced new firsts: True Beam radiation therapy, advancements in mammography imaging technology including 3D, and 3T MRI imaging for prostate cancer. We also offer the most advanced minimally invasive navigational bronchoscopy technology used to diagnose lung cancer in areas previously not reachable. Through the efforts of the Community Cancer Research Foundation, our cancer patients have access to clinical trials from leading research cooperatives and industry groups around the world, including the National Cancer Institute. Innovative programs like our same-day mammography readings and rapid biopsy results are driven by understanding and a desire to lessen the stress that comes with a cancer diagnosis. Our hospitals participate in cancer registries and are among a select few having achieved a number of national accreditations demonstrating adherence to standards for quality, multidisciplinary and comprehensive cancer care.

Patients and their loved ones can access free support, education and mind-body programs at the Cancer Resource Centre and other classes offered throughout the healthcare system. Here, patients find hope in the extraordinary stories of strength and inspiration of others who are living fully in spite of cancer.
