Meet Your Cancer-Care Co-Pilots

When you get a cancer diagnosis, you need a team to fight with you—and a place to call home. That’s what North Memorial Health Cancer Center provides. Our top-rated hematologists, oncologists, and surgeons provide superlative care and access to the latest technological treatments, clinical trials, onsite pharmacy, and private chemo rooms. It’s research-university- level care in an environment where you’re not one of a thousand, you are the ONE.

The North Memorial Health Advantage

  • We have been accredited since 1987 with the Commission on Cancer, a rigorous program that cements our commitment to interdisciplinary treatment and consistent improvements to our care.
  • We have oncology-certified nurses, our providers are specialists in hematology and oncology and are often named to local Top Doctors’ lists.
  • Our Cancer Center Pharmacy provides personalized counseling and the convenience of on-site infusion and retail pharmacy services.
  • North Memorial Health Cancer also has highly trained and experienced genetic counselors on staff for families seeking information about their cancer risk.
  • 100 percent of North Memorial Health Breast Center customers surveyed are willing to recommend the care and facilities.
  • We are one of few places in Minnesota to perform the much less invasive robotic lung-cancer surgery.
  • We are also the third-largest oral, head and neck cancer practice in Minnesota.
  • We believe well-being is the sixth vital sign—equally as important as lab values and blood pressure. That’s why we address the practical, family, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your care too.
  • Each person meets with a financial counselor and we offer advance care planning, chaplains and palliative care.
  • Our oncology social worker can get you services you may need outside our clinic: Housekeeping, grant money (we gave more than $1.6 million in 2016 alone), meal deliveries, ride-shares, and more.
  • We support your desires for alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, aromatherapy, diet, massage, and reiki.
  • We make the journey with you from diagnosis to treatment’s end. Survivorship visits provide you with a summary of your diagnosis and treatments, plus you’ll review treatment effects, understand your “new normal,” connect to resources, outline follow-ups, and discuss recurrence prevention.
