cancer care at Bellefonte

Just as cancer is not one disease, but a group of diseases, Cancer Care at Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital (OLBH) is not just a single entity.  At OLBH we view Cancer Care as a team effort.  Each member of the OLBH Cancer Care team is a knowledgeable and experienced professional who has access to the latest and safest treatment information regarding cancer care.  Having professionals from different disciplines involved in cancer care ensures that patients will receive the best possible treatment.  A host of highly advanced cancer treatments, on par with the nation’s leading cancer facilities, are available at OLBH.

The OLBH Cancer Care team focuses on delivering quality care.  The team utilizes evidence-based best practice to deliver care.  OLBH‘s electronic medical record (EMR) facilitates coordination of care with the multidisciplinary team.
OLBH has a special nursing unit dedicated to oncology services, known as the “Emmanuel Unit”.  This unit incorporates holistic care as a part of patient healing.  The care is designed to treat the whole person—body, mind, and spirit.
