Practicing Cancer Care at Cooley Dickinson

REQUEST MORE INFORMATION

 

Approximately half of us will be diagnosed with some form of cancer at some time in our lives, including 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 in 9 men being diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Mass General Cancer Center at Cooley Dickinson Hospital recognizes the need for a broad spectrum of options in cancer treatment, including an ongoing commitment to continually upgrade on-site equipment, take full advantage of our system affiliation by accessing Mass General Brigham’s cancer resources, and maintain a team of staff whose dedication to excellence is only perhaps outshone by their collective compassion.

Entry to the LINAC Radiation Oncology Suite

Cooley Dickinson increases its capability to treat cancer every year, investing in new medications and radiation technologies, and supplementing chemotherapy and radiation treatment with Integrative Therapies including Reiki, acupuncture and oncology massage which aim to help maintain a high quality-of-life throughout a patient’s regimen. Breast cancer care is now fully integrated with Cooley Dickinson’s Breast Center, which coordinates multiple imaging diagnostics alongside other screening and treatment tools, and works with Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Plastic Surgery to facilitate seamlessly scheduled mastectomy/reconstructive surgery options.

Our cancer center provides a variety of treatments and services and includes quiet, spacious treatment areas for patients in our infusion suite, a state-of-the-art radiation oncology suite with a new linear accelerator that increases accuracy and reduces treatment times, and a care team of exceptional, compassionate professionals. Associated surgeries are performed at our equally impressive Kittredge Surgery Center.

 

  • World Class Facilities

    Facilities at the Cancer Center include a spacious, sunny infusion suite, private exam rooms and a new linear accelerator in the Vitkauskas Crowe Radiation Oncology Suite that began operating in July 2020, expanding the types of cancer we are able to treat and cutting some treatment session times by up to 66%. Cancer-related surgeries are performed in our adjacent Kittredge Surgery Center, which was added to the hospital in 2007. Patients also have full access to all of the resources at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, including current clinical trials of the newest treatments and medications.

From infusion to radiation, nutrition and medicine to rehabilitation or palliative care, the composition of our teams aims to cover every facet of cancer care and quality-of-life management. In turn, patients at the Cancer Center have shown immense gratitude for their care, and many have graciously agreed to share their stories with others who may find themselves faced with the same health challenges in years to come.

  • Life in Paradise City

    Northampton, Massachusetts is an idyllic New England town that's socially progressive, packed with art, music and culture, coffee shops, craft breweries and a fast-growing niche of pop-up businesses that channel the "creative economy." Located in the center of the Five-College Region, its people are typically highly educated, thoughtful and expressive. Just minutes from the edge of hiking, boating and exploring beautiful natural resources and an hour from skiing, summer theater and outlet stores in the Berkshires, we're also only 2 hours from Boston and 3 hours from New York City.
