After undergoing a lumpectomy, Karen McGowan of Swedesboro faced questions that thousands of women face every year. Will I need chemo? Radiation? Some other treatment? And because it was March 2020, another question was on her mind. Would she be comfortable going to a hospital for treatment just as COVID-19 was arriving in South Jersey?
Opening in early 2020, the leading-edge Cancer Center at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill is designed for the comfort and convenience of patients seeking oncology services.
By offering a comprehensive suite of cancer services all in one location adjacent to the hospital, we strive to make cancer care as simple and effective as possible. Our multidisciplinary clinical space is focused on patient-centered design and cutting-edge technology. With a full range of radiation oncology services, including two linear accelerators capable of destroying cancer cells while sparing surrounding healthy tissue, and comprehensive medical and surgical oncology care, we’re equipped to treat all forms of cancer. Our team includes board certified and fellowship trained physicians who specialize in specific cancers and treatments. We also provide all-inclusive support services, including access to cancer navigators, registered dietitians, genetic counselors, behavioral health specialists, physical therapists and other support staff. Everyone works collaboratively to provide seamless personalized care.
