Hear a patient story from the Center for Cancer Care:
Cancer treatment consolidated in one location is a core service of a community hospital like ours. That's why our Board of Directors decided to construct the Center for Cancer Care on our main campus. We were given the go-ahead by the New York State Department of Health, which also conducted its own review of the need for consolidated services. The resulting 6,000 square-foot facility is literally groundbreaking: it's one of a very few buildings in the North Country that uses geothermal heating and cooling; the building houses an open design radiation treatment center for greater comfort.
Three outstanding medical practitioners serve patients here: Howard Gold, MD, a medical oncologist and hematologist, who completed a fellowship at the world-famous M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, David Hauerstock, MD, a McGill-trained radiation oncologist, and Vel Matthews-Smith, MD, an oncologist who was fellowship trained at Vanderbilt University. They work with a team of medical professionals to provide compassionate, expert cancer care to our region.
