Experts Under One Roof

At the Cancer Center, we're integrated. Medical oncology and radiation therapy are just down the hall; surgeons' offices are upstairs. That makes care better for patients. It's more convenient for doctors to talk with a colleague who's down the hall than across town. And no matter what treatment you need, our specialists are trained at the best medical schools and hospitals.

Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center received commendation by American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. For patients, this means our program has met the highest standards for cancer care. Only 25 percent of cancer providers are approved by the American College of Surgeons. (You can read more about the commendation here.)

Our cancer center also is home to Vermont's first and only Accredited Breast Care Program, which goes to show that we put patients at the center of everything we do.

Great Imaging Technology
Treating cancer means getting a good diagnosis. We offer the latest in digital imaging technology, including CT scanning, MRI, nuclear imaging, and PET/CT.

Great Treatment Technology
Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center offers a level of radiation therapy not often found at community cancer centers. In fact, some of the treatments we offer can only be found at big-name cancer centers in New York or Boston. We have the latest in intensity- modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) protocols for many cancers, such as

  • Pancreatic
  • Esophageal
  • Prostate
  • Breast
  • Lung
  • Head and Neck
  • Gynecological
  • Skin

Clinical Trials
Choices are important. By having clinical trials, we give our patients choices. They can choose to receive the standard of care -- the best proven treatment medicine can offer. Or, they can choose to receive the standard of care plus treatment that scientists think may be even better. (For example, other cancer centers waited to see if Herceptin would improve breast cancer treatment. We didn't wait. Some of our patients got the drug as part of a clinical trial.) We have a specially trained nurse to help you find a clinical trial and decide if it's right for you.
