Get to know us better- Hear from UM SJMC cancer survivors who’ve received faith-based, personalized compassionate care.
As a recognized affiliate of the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Cancer Institute at UM St. Joseph Medical Center brings new hope to patients through the application of the most advanced diagnostic and treatment services. Multidisciplinary teams of highly skilled professionals combine cutting-edge technologies with compassionate care -- setting new standards in cancer treatment.
The Cancer Institute is more than multiple centers of medical excellence. It's a world that revolves around each patient, guiding him or her through the challenges of cancer. Designed to maximize patient comfort, convenience, and peace of mind, the institute brings all specialists in their treatment together in one location, where patients can see their providers in a single visit. This radically alters and improves the usual patient experience of multiple appointments over many anxious weeks. Everyone, from medical oncologists and surgeons, to radiologists, gastroenterologists, nurse navigators, social workers, geneticists, dieticians, pharmacists, and cancer education professionals is involved in tailoring the best treatment plan for you.
This centralized facility eliminates barriers to scheduling and access, which allows patients to focus their energy on getting well and surviving their cancer. We believe in treating the whole person -- not just the disease -- through an individualized plan focused on mind, body and spirit.
