The Cancer Treatment Center brings together Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology for complete cancer care to patients in Helena and the surrounding area. Medical Oncology includes full chemotherapy and hematology services. Radiation Oncology offers state–of–the–art radiation therapy, including seed implants and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).
The Cancer Treatment Center’s Medical Oncologists and Radiation Oncologist are members of The Montana Cancer Consortium, a group that allows St. Peter’s to participate in national clinical cancer trials approved by the National Cancer Institute. These are the same trials that are often available at universities and major medical centers.
The medical oncologists admit patients to the Oncology Unit at St. Peter’s Hospital and are the attending physician for their patient. The physicians do take call for each other on weekends and during other allotted time off.
The Director of Oncology Services oversees both the Cancer Treatment Center and Inpatient Oncology Unit to help provide continuity of care and seamless transitions within the entire care team.
St. Peter’s Cancer Treatment Center treats the "whole" person, not just the disease. In addition to physicians, nurses, and technologists, other professionals such as social workers, dietitians, physical therapists, home health providers, spiritual practitioners, and hospice professionals are incorporated into patient care.
