Specialty clinics: Cancer Care Center
The Bay Area Cancer Care Center is a partnership with St Vincent Medical Center that places all services under one roof. Whether the cancer is treated with radiation, chemotherapy or a combination of both approaches, the combined clinic concept makes treatment more convenient for patients and also allows all patient information to be coordinated on one chart. A highly qualified team that includes physicists, radiation therapists, a certified medical dosimetrist, and oncology certified nurses provides radiation, medical care, and drug therapy five days a week. Bay Area Cancer Care Center also participates in the latest clinical trials for the treatment of a variety of cancers.
In 1992, Bay Area Medical Center recognized the need for the very best cancer care close to home and partnered with Green Bay's St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center to open the Bay Area Cancer Care Center. St. Vincent's nationally recognized Regional Cancer Center provided staffing expertise in radiation oncology that was remarkable for a community of our size. This successful partnership has provided superior cancer treatment focusing on respect and the needs of each patient.
Team-centered, multidisciplinary approach
At Bay Area Cancer Care Center, medical and radiation oncologists work side by side to determine the best, most comprehensive plan of care for patients. A highly qualified team that includes physicists, radiation therapists, a certified medical dosimetrist and oncology-certified nurses provides radiation and drug therapy five days a week. This care team also extends to medical professionals at BAMC who provide medical/surgical care, high-end diagnostic imaging, pastoral care, social services and dietary consulting. Patients who require hospitalization stay in a special wing staffed by oncology-certified nurses. Each step of the way, patients receive care from professionals who truly understand what patients are facing.
Bay Area Cancer Care Center offers a visually healing environment. The colors and textures of the rooms and furnishings and the bright and cheerful surroundings are selected with the special needs of our patients and families in mind. The cancer center features nearly two dozen local paintings, photographs and a signature waterfall to inspire warmth, nourishment and healing. Look beyond the new equipment and facility and you will see many of the same faces present at the cancer center's original opening in 1992. As they did then, these caregivers recognize that cancer is not like any other disease. They know the impact when a patient first hears the words you have cancer. The Bay Area Cancer Care Center staff heals more than the body—they also heal the mind and spirit. The staff's commitment is seen in the way each patient is treated with care, dignity and shared humor. A family develops that includes other patients as well as the many caregivers at BAMC.
Combined clinic concept
The Bay Area Cancer Care Center is a model program that places all services under one roof. At one central location, attached to Bay Area Medical Center, the cancer center coordinates all therapeutic services. Whether the cancer is treated with radiation, chemotherapy or a combination of both, the combined clinic concept makes treatment more convenient for the patient and allows all patient information to be coordinated on one chart.
Radiation oncologists, a medical oncologist and specially trained technicians provide the high-tech cancer treatment.
In addition to providing superior medical and radiation oncology, the cancer center has also begun conducting clinical trials through its partnership with St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center. Clinical trials can offer new hope to patients and give our doctors and staff access to cutting-edge treatments before they become available nationwide.
