Healing Environment

Located in the Allied Health Building, this multidisciplinary center offers three private treatment rooms and a comfortable waiting area along with a large infusion therapy room.

Clinical Excellence & Compassionate Care

We care about you, your family, and your fight against cancer. Our dedicated team of professionals works together to create a personalized treatment plan specific to your needs. We understand that living with cancer requires more than just fighting the disease. Our staff provides education, treatment and support for patients and families. We are there for you every step of the way.

Advanced Treatments

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy, the most common of all cancer treatments, uses drugs to fight cancer by killing cancer cells directly. How patients receive chemotherapy varies, though cycled treatments are delivered most often through a process called infusion. Drew Memorial’s Cancer Care Center provides state-of-the-art cancer care closer to home, offering greater convenience at a time when you need it most.

Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy is vital in the treatment of a variety of diseases, including cancer. In addition to chemotherapy, the Cancer Care Center also offers additional infusion therapies:

Intravenous antibiotic treatment
Blood Transfusions
Hydration Therapy
Phlebotomy
Osteoporosis treatment via Reclast infusion

 

Other Services

The Cancer Care Center also provides diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders, Mediport maintenance, outpatient injections, and other outpatient infusions.

Drew Memorial Hospital has partnered with the Arkansas Cancer Institute in Pine Bluff to provide our patients with top of the line cancer care and access to some of the best doctors in the state. Best of all, the oncology/hemotology specialists travel to Monticello for the convenience of our patients.
