Mercy Cancer Center
Overview of Cancer Center
Mercy Cancer Center has been accredited since 1986 as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. In 2008 CoC awarded Mercy Cancer Center the Outstanding Achievement Award for excellence in cancer care. Mercy is the only area hospital and one of just 95 facilities nationwide to earn the award, along with the CoC¹s three-year re-accreditation with commendation. Fewer than 20 percent of cancer programs in the United States attain this superior recognition. This earmark of quality ensures patients will receive the very best comprehensive cancer care without ever leaving Stark County.
At the Mercy Cancer Center, we believe that to be truly effective, we must be comprehensive in our approach to the treatment of cancer. We are committed to offering the very best possible care and outcomes for the patients and families we serve. Our goal is to make it easier for you if we can.
Treating approximately 700 new cancer patients every year, the Mercy Cancer Center offers state-of-the-art diagnostics and surgical facilities, innovative treatments with chemotherapy and radiation, national cancer research trials and the latest in cancer information. But what sets us apart from other providers is our holistic approach to cancer care. At the Mercy Cancer Center, we strive to take care of the whole person and not just their cancer. That means we start with progressive and technologically advanced treatment and then surround you with nurturing and supportive services to help you throughout your cancer journey.
