The American College of Surgeons recently designated the Cancer Center of High Point Regional Health System as a "Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program". This designation is the highest one available to non-teaching hospitals.
For patients or their loved ones who are fighting a battle with cancer, that accreditation means that they'll receive state-of-the-art care at a center that has access to the latest developments in cancer care. And, because the Cancer Center is part of High Point Regional, you can rely on the same compassionate caregiving that has always been a staple in High Point.
One of the center's major components is the Lillian J. Phillips Cancer Pavilion, which houses the Radiation Oncology department. Since its inception in 1987, the department has seen more than 2,700 patients and given more than 51,000 treatments, all in an effort to fulfill the Pavilion's mission of providing quality, cost-effective, compassionate radiation therapy services.
On the oncology unit, the nationally certified staff of caregivers have years of experience with cancer patients. They use their acquired knowledge to assist in solving the complex problems that cancer patients and their loved ones face.
The Cancer Center's Registry is a department which gathers data from all patients diagnosed and/or treated at the Center and follows each patient on an annual basis for life. The data allows the Center to collaborate with other cancer centers and physicians around the country to ensure that you receive the best cancer care available.
These and many other pieces are woven together to provide a continuous blanket of cancer care at High Point Regional. From the Radiologist who reads your computed tomography results, to the the dietitian who prescribes your diet, to the volunteer who serves as a friendly visitor during your stay, the people in High Point Regional's Cancer Center are driven by a dedication to provide patients and loved ones with the best cancer care available.
