The Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma, located on the Jackson County Memorial Hospital campus, provides both radiation therapy and chemotherapy in a healing and compassionate environment, right here at home.
Our network of cancer centers offers technology and clinical protocols found in the largest cancer centers in the United States – enabling our doctors to treat you with the best weapons available in the fight against cancer.
Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan coordinated by an entire team of medical and radiation oncologists, certified technicians and therapists.
Patients who receive initial care outside the area can take comfort in knowing they have the option of receiving their oncologist’s prescribed treatment with the personal care and support they need, without having to travel far from home.
Following a patient’s diagnosis and the development of the treatment plan, our experienced chemotherapy nurses and radiation therapists provide treatment following the directions of the patient’s oncologist.
The 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 designed for patients to rest comfortably while receiving treatments.
In true Southwest Oklahoma spirit, three community hospitals joined hands to make life better for those who face cancer treatment. Together, Jackson County Memorial in Altus, Comanche County Memorial in Lawton, and Duncan Regional Hospital in Duncan combined their resources and expertise to create a new tradition in health care.
