Receiving a diagnosis of cancer is difficult, but now getting the local treatment and support you need is not. Our new cancer care program at the hospital, overseen by Dr. Jane Grace M. Manalo, offers a full spectrum of clinical and support services - everything from screening and diagnostics to treatment and counseling. Patients can even participate in clinical trials, with access to our state-of-the-art oncology program located on the third floor of the new Medical Office Building right here in Highland.
Plus, a new PET-CT scanner to enhance the hospital's existing cancer care program in diagnosis and treatment for cancer patients. St. Joseph's new cancer care program offers diagnostics, lab testing and staging; medical and surgical referrals; physical therapy, rehabilitation and massage therapy; treatment options for lymphedema; and inpatient hospice.
St. Joseph's Hospital HSHS is dedicated to reducing the burden of cancer on the people of Highland and beyond through an integrated program of excellence in research, education, prevention and treatment.
Patients can be referred by their physician or schedule an appointment directly by calling (618) 651-2888.
