Transforming Care for Our Patients
For residents of Effingham and surrounding communities who are dealing with cancer, care close to home makes it easier for patients—and their families—to focus on healing. Our patients receive personalized care, save hours of time in transit, and benefit from a professional support system within our own community.
The Cancer Care Center is licensed to administer chemotherapy. We have created a comfortable place with a caring, professional team that is focused on you. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, we welcome you to call us to arrange a tour.
If you are diagnosed with cancer, your primary care physician or specialist will explain treatment options, which may include surgery, radiation, and/or medical oncology (including chemotherapy). Once your physician suggests medical oncology or chemotherapy, you may request to be referred to the Cancer Care Center at Effingham Health System.
Any patient requiring medical oncology care and chemotherapy may request to be referred to the Cancer Care Center at Effingham Health System.
Financial Counseling and Support
Understanding insurance benefits can be overwhelming while you are dealing with cancer treatment, so we have a counselor on staff to work with you. We can also connect you with community organizations that provide support for cancer patients—both financially and emotionally.
