Cancer Care and Treatment
A cancer diagnosis is a life changing event. It affects every aspect of you and your families’ lives.
Lakeland Health strives to care for the whole person, from accurate diagnoses and advanced treatments to counseling and community programs, in a comfortable and convenient setting. The comprehensive cancer care services at Lakeland Health offers both inpatient and outpatient care.
Since 1987, the cancer care at Lakeland Health has been accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Only one in four hospitals that treat cancer receives this approval, which recognizes quality in comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care. The approval also ensures quality care close to home, access to cancer related information and support and the ability to participate in clinical trials of new cancer therapies.
The Marie Yeager Cancer Center undergoes a rigorous on-site evaluation and review every three years. To read more on this accreditation click here.

Our treatment teams of physicians, nurses, radiation therapist, and specialized support staff, work together to ensure that patients receive accurate diagnoses and individualized treatments for the best possible cancer care.
